About me

I have over 20 years experience working in mental health in both primary and secondary care services within various NHS settings.
In addition to private practise, I also work part time in a mental health service within the NHS.

I am a fully accredited CBT therapist with the UK's nationally recognised organisation for Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapists, the BABCP, the lead organisation for CBT in the UK. I have over 20 years of experience working in mental health settings.
I also strive to maintain and keep up to date with required professional standards and knowledge and feel particularly skillful in developing trusting, therapeutic relationships with clients.
I am also a qualified EMDR Practitioner and use this particular form of therapy, as specified in the NICE guidelines, to treat trauma and such like related difficulties.

I am based in Bramley, Rotherham S66, which is conveniently only 5 minutes from the M18 and M1 and is ideally placed to see clients from anywhere in Yorkshire.
