My aim in each therapy session is to create a safe environment in which we can have honest and open conversations. I try to understand your situation and we work together to consider potential solutions and opportunities for change. Therapy is a team effort where we try to improve the circumstances of your life and achieve your goals.
I practice a person-centered approach where your engagement in therapy sessions and participation in treatment plans is welcomed and encouraged. Together we learn to challenge negative thoughts and replace them with more positive, healthier ways of thinking. We learn ways to improve communication in relationships and to reduce tension and anxiety.
I attained my psychotherapy diploma in 2014 and started a private practice in St Helier, Jersey shortly after. I am passionate about continuing my professional development and I have recently completed courses in treating trauma; EMDR (foundation); psychological trauma in children and young people; narcissistic relationships, emotional abuse and gaslighting; neuroscience fundamentals. I am registered with the Jersey Care Commission (JCC), an accredited member of the National Counselling Society (NCS), the British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) and the UK Council for Psychotherapy(UKCP).
