My Approach

My training is psychodynamic but I like to draw on other models to inform my work. I believe that therapy should be client led rather than the application of a particular theory or modality. It is primarily the establishment of a trusting safe relationship which will hopefully facilitate change.

About Me

I am an experienced Psychotherapist specialising in trauma. I offer short and long-term contracts including brief focussed therapy for organisations and individuals. I am now based in Measham where I offer face-to-face or on-line sessions. I work with individuals covering a wide range of issues including anxiety, depression, bereavement, panic attacks, relationship issues and low self-esteem. I also offer supervision.

I work with

  • Companies
  • Couples
  • 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.

I work with abuse including childhood abuse and its impact on current relationships and self-esteem.
Having adopted a child myself this is an area of special interest.
Having suffered many bereavements throughout my own life I feel this is an area where I can offer compassion and understanding.
So many of us have episodes of depression but if we can discover some of the reasons and triggers underlying it we can unlock some of its hold over us.
Having worked with trauma over many years it is an area I find particularly rewarding to explore.
