I like to work in an integrative way drawing particularly on psychodynamic, gestalt and internal family systems theories. As well as talking therapy I also use creative methods including visualisations, drawing and sandtray work to help my clients connect to their experiences.
i am a reliable, relational, kind, caring, compassionate, creative and curious therapist. I often work with clients who have had traumatic childhoods and am interested in how neuroscience is informing our ideas of how the brain can be conditioned in childhood trauma which can often result in acting out the trauma in later life through eating disorders, anger, drug and alchohol abuse, and relational issues. I don't believe in 'no hope' and always bear that in mind when working with my clients..
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.
