My Approach

My core clinical approaches are Transactional Analysis and Interpersonal Psychotherapy. I take an integrative and relational approach putting your experience at the centre of our work. I seek to provide a safe, welcoming and non judgemental space for you to explore your difficulties, find resolution, and make the changes to enable you to live a more fulfilling and enjoyable life.

About Me

I have been a psychotherapist for over 20 years. I have worked in a therapeutic community treating people with high levels of disturbance, which is often a result of early trauma and childhood neglect. I continued this work providing psychotherapy, training and consultancy to an organisation looking after and treating 'looked after' children with distressing experiences and challenging behaviours. After a few years of managing a counselling service in an FE college, I joined the NHS where I have worked for 12 years in a variety of clinical roles.

I work with

  • Couples
  • Groups
  • Individuals
  • Private healthcare referrals

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 am qualfied and accredited as a Supervising Interpersonal Psychotherapist. IPT is a specialist treatment modality widely used throughout IAPT services in the NHS, for treating recurrent episodes of depression where the difficulties you experience in your relationships with other people contribute to your depressive symptoms. I also use the TA approach to explore the underlying issues and experience which have played a part in modelling your depression.
As a disabled adult myself. Over the years I have worked extensively with people facing the challenges of debilitating physical and psychological difficulties. In this work I aim to help you to develop the clarity to find and use the resources you need, and reduce the limitations presented by your environment.
I am accredited to supervise interpersonal psychotherapists. I also provide supervision to experienced counsellors and psychotherapists working in other modalities. I cannot provide supervision to TA trainees which is creditable to their training logs.
I am exoerienced in the provision of specialist training to practitioners working in a range of environments. Again, any TA training I provide is not accreditable to TA trainees logs.
