Professional background and experience

I am a qualified counsellor with experience working in prisons and educational settings, both with common mental health issues and those presenting with more complex mental health problems.

I have extensive experience working with IAPT as a Counsellor, and how anxiety and depression present.

What to expect from our Therapists

We carry out rigorous checks and vet all our therapists before they join the team. They must meet with our high standards of professional specification which includes:

This means that the mental health professional you see will be qualified, experienced and competent.

We are a private mental health clinic and have a number of therapists with different specialities. Because of this, we can offer therapies to help with a wide range of mental health issues from Anxiety to PTSD and child psychology.

First, we carry out a triage step during a 15-minute free initial telephone consultation. Depending on the challenges you’re facing, we will then recommend a counsellor, CBT therapist or clinical psychologist.

We also have clinic locations throughout the North, so there is usually one not too far from you.

As a result, we can usually offer an appointment quickly and at a time and place convenient for you. But, above all, tailored to your needs.

Please note, not all of our therapists work from all our clinic locations. Contact us for information on which therapists it is possible to see at which locations.
