My Approach

I know from personal experience how powerful the therapeutic space can be. I also know that coming to therapy can feel like a big step. I welcome people of all identities, cultures, sexualities and faiths, and am committed to holding a confidential and non-judgmental space for you to:
- make sense of your life experiences, discovering new perspectives and meanings that allow you to feel more comfortable in your own skin
- process painful thoughts and feelings, explore ways in which you feel stuck, and release emotions that have been blocked
- find new ways to cope with the challenges that life brings, and to relate with those around you
- reconnect with parts of yourself that you’ve lost touch with, to help you recognise your values and needs, and live your life accordingly.

Everyone is different and I tailor my approach to you as an individual or couple, but attunement to your experience of the world is at the heart of how I work. I believe that, alongside difficult and challenging events in the present, our early experiences and relationships can have a profound influence on how we feel and behave, what we believe about ourselves and how we relate to others around us.

Therapy can bring about deep and lasting change, through exploring these beliefs and patterns together, and opening up space for new possibilities to emerge.

Please note - there are a small number of steps (up and down) on the way into my therapy space.

I work in a garden office and there is no access to a toilet at these premises. I am near a high street with several cafes and am happy to advise on alternative local facilities if necessary.

Please let me know if you have any other access needs - I am open to discussing ways in which I can reasonably accommodate these.
