My Approach

I work with a humanistic and integrative approach, which is grounded in empathy, understanding and a deep respect for each person’s unique journey. My approach to therapy is creative, and trauma informed. It takes account of the interconnection of mind and body. I integrate verbal and non verbal processes, such as movement, art/image making and music to explore thoughts, feelings and memories. This supports an holistic approach, taking account of the whole person in terms of overall health and well-being, in a way that puts you at ease. I offer a free initial consultation for you to decide if I am the right therapist to support you in your journey.

About Me

I am committed to creating a safe and supportive space for clients to explore their emotional and psychological challenges. My goal is to help clients build resilience, gain insight, and develop practical skills that they can use to navigate life's difficulties. I believe therapy is a collaborative process, and I work closely with each client to create a tailored therapeutic plan that meets specific needs and goals. With over a decade of experience, I have worked with a diverse range of clients within the NHS, charitable settings, and now in Private Practice. I welcome clients from all backgrounds and am committed to providing an inclusive and non-judgemental space for all.

Special Interests

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.

I have extensive experience in working with people with disabilities, helping to navigate towards greater autonomy and self awareness. I am adept at working with people who have cognitive disabilities, restricted mobility and/or wheelchair users in ways that bring a greater sense of self agency. I have a deep understanding of supporting clients to overcome the oppression of ableism and to develop greater resilience.
I work with those who may have received a diagnosis, but I work with the person not the pathology. Working with a trauma informed approach, I help clients to not only manage symptoms of mental health spectrum disorders but to work towards health, healing, insight and self awareness. I meet clients where they are in the moment, the place where my humanity meets your and will always treat you with dignity and respect.
I work with clients who may be experiencing a loss or crisis of faith. I respect each individuals belief system and work to support those who may be experiencing existential depression and anxiety. I will support you in your understanding of what spirituality means to you. I also work with those who have experienced ritual spiritual or religious abuse, and support clients to recover from systemic trauma that may be as a result of such experiences.
I work with a trauma informed approach which gives me a profound understanding of dissociation and dissociative disorders. I work from the somatic or body based perspective incorporating Neuroscience and understanding of how trauma impacts the individual. I use creative and non verbal ways of working that avoid re-traumatising the client during the therapy process. Working in this way can be empowering and helps you towards insight and understanding. Your goal may be to achieve an integrated self, but I also hold the space for those that wish to work toward non disordered plurality.
