My Approach

I will meet you where you are at, without judgement and with compassion. I will bring new perspectives to your challenges and help you turn obstacles into life lessons and gifts. I know what it is like to feel stuck, without hope or caught in a story that seems to be governed by the past. Our work together may involve making sense of this past and integrating it into a new story that works for you and how you want to live your life. Drawing upon my experience and training I will also provide you with practical techniques and resources that will support you to heal and achieve your life goals.

About Me

I am a qualified psychotherapeutic counsellor with 23 years in private practice. My core working philosophy is Psychosynthesis but I have also integrated Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Internal Family Systems and somatic approaches into my work.
I work with a diverse range of adult clients (individual, couples and groups), long and short term, including clients suffering trauma; bereavement; anxiety; recovery from addiction; abuse; depression; relationship difficulties; existential issues; and life transitions.
Over the past 4 years I have also trained in and supported clients with psychedelic integration, particularly those with a history of trauma and abuse.
I work in person and online and offer outdoor sessions in the Peak district.
