I offer a warm containing space where I encourage client's to co-create their sessions, ensuring they receive therapy tailored to their own individual needs. I am client led, and will then offer gentle interventions to help facilitate the shift or change a client is looking for. I am happy to offer more challenge if client's express being stuck or wanting to work more deeply. I have been told I have a very calming presence and invite client's to share freely, without fear of judgement. The work we do within the sessions, can then help transfer to relationships in the outside world and I can support and guide client's to increase their self awareness, gain reflective skills along with increase their coping mechanisms.
I am a UKCP Registered Integrative Psychotherapist and a HCPC Registered Arts Psychotherapist. This enables me to offer many different ways of working to best facilitate change to each individual. I can offer traditional talk therapy, along with somatic body work and creative mediums. I am experienced at both short and long term therapy for a wide array of different symptoms or presentations. I have lived experience of Chronic Health Conditions and Disability and clinical experience within therapy. This helped me to specialise in Service Related Mental Health Conditions with both Military Veterans and Serving Police Officers. I have experience of supporting people through workbased stress and relational issues, including PTSD and Complex PTSD, depression, anxiety, loss and bereavement (specially trained in Covid-19 Bereavement).
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.
