I am a trained integrative psychotherapist.
In our sessions I will pay attention to what is happening between us as well as responding empathically and attuning sensitively to the difficulties being explored.
Integrative Psychotherapy affirms the inherent value of each individual. It is a unifying psychotherapy that responds appropriately and effectively to the person at all levels of functioning, and addresses all dimensions of life.
Integrative Psychotherapy is also the process of making whole; referring to the process of integrating personality, taking disowned, unaware, or unresolved aspects of the self and making them part of a cohesive personality. Ideally therapy reduces the use of thoughts and behaviours that inhibit spontaneity and limit flexibility in problem solving and relating to people.
Through integration, it becomes possible for people to face each moment openly and freshly without the protection of a preformed opinion, position, attitude, or expectation.
Professional psychotherapy offers a safe space for you to look at what may be causing you distress or to explore ways in which you can develop your full potential.
I offer private psychotherapy to individuals in a village close to Holt, North Norfolk
I also offer clinical supervision sessions there.

I have been involved in the field of counselling and psychotherapy for over 20 years. I have completed trainings in both Counselling and Integrative Psychotherapy. I have considerable interest in relational psychotherapy; intersubjectivity; and clinical supervision
As well as working in private practice I work as a clinical supervisor for counsellors and psychotherapists.
I have special interest in bereavement and loss and have worked as a trainer and facilitator for Suffolk CRUSE. I have been a supervisor for the IAPT counselling service in Suffolk. I have also worked as an educator and a psychotherapist with adolescents and young offenders.
I am also interested in the clinical application of supervision. I completed my research into the discourse of group supervision at the University of Leicester.
Like all UKCP registered psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors I can work with a wide range of issues, but here are some areas in which I have a special interest or additional experience.
