My Approach

I offer a sensitive approach, working creatively and shaping the therapeutic process to your individual needs. Although medium to longer term work enables deeper levels of engagement which can support change and growth, the seeds of healing can be sown in a few short sessions.

About Me

I am an psychotherapist qualified to work with both young people and adults. As an integrative therapist I work in a trauma informed way and draw on a range of tools to support your unique way of being in the world.

I work with

  • Children and young people
  • Individuals

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.

Addiction has complex routes and impacts on our ability to be fully ourselves in the world. As such, there is no one size fits all approach. I work with you to understand the roots of addiction and to combine this deeper way of working with tools and strategies to empower you on your journey.
I offer reflective parenting, which is a safe space for carers to reflect on the journey of parenting. Parenting in a challenging world can stir up many conflicting and difficult feelings which impact on our capacity to parent from the heart. In my experience having a safe, reflective space to explore parenting experiences can transform both the experience of parenting as well as the relationship between parent and child.
Understanding the way trauma impacts on development and our ways of being in the world informs all aspects of my work. Only when we feel safe can our nervous systems begin to heal.
