My Approach

I practice as a Humanistic & Integrative Psychotherapist & Clinical / Academic Supervisor

About Me

My core training was Humanistic Person Centered and I provide counselling / psychotherapy sessions and Clinical Supervision that are underpinned by a humanistic/integrative philosophy and have 24 years of experience of Psychotherapy. I am able to work with trainees from both of these approaches. 

I am a fully accredited member of the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP), and a graduate member of the Sherwood Psychotherapy Training Institute, Nottingham. I therefore adhere to each body’s respective codes of ethics and my work is appropriately supervised in line with these codes. 

I trained at The Sherwood Psychotherapy Training Institute (SPTI) from 2000 – 2005 and graduated with an MA in Person-Centred Humanistic Psychotherapy (Merit).  Upon graduating, I worked in Nottingham city schools with primary aged children. I then took a year out to have my second child and moved to France. I went on to work in the NHS until the beginning of 2019 when I taught in counselling & psychotherapy level 2, 3, & 6.  Since qualifying into 2005 I have also worked in private practice.

In 2017 I qualified as a Clinical Training Supervisor and am accredited with the UKCP.

I have taught Humanistic & Integrative counselling & psychotherapy at Levels 2, 3 & 6.

My approach is trauma-informed, disability affirmative, neurodiversity affirmative and LGBTQIA+ affirmative. I have a passion for supporting individuals who are discovering themselves, I value your experience and your truth, I speak out against discrimination and oppression of any kind, and work to promote difference, diversity, and inclusivity.

I hold a special interest in issues regarding neurodiversity, gender, sexuality, identity, identity based trauma along with female hormones, perimenopause, and menopause.

As an adult with late diagnosis of ADHD / ASD and a parent of two children with ASD I have extensive knowledge of this area, navigating the complexities of pre & post diagnosis, and of celebrating uniqueness and diversity. I will offer a warm, accepting, and safe environment where we can explore together your own ways of being, how these might be for you and find ways to support you moving forward wherever you are within this part of your journey. We will take as much time needed to get to know one another, what works for you, what doesn’t, and find a shared language and way of expressing your experience. I want to accommodate you and your needs whether this may be sensory, structure of the sessions, methods of communication, etc so that you are able to maximise what you gain from the sessions and we can explore these together.

As human beings, we have many different parts to ourselves. Sometimes, we learn to dismiss some of these parts, to keep them hidden and not known. We might become ashamed of them and have a sense that they are wrong. Our minds and bodies are connected, are incredible and even more so when degrees of harmony can be found. However, for a whole variety of reasons we can develop a disconnect with our bodies, although they do hold onto what we have experienced and these stored experiences, memories, and feelings can manifest in many different ways that might not be helpful and you may want to change. I therefore incorporate working with an Embodied approach, which can help with expressing feelings when words aren’t as accessible. 

Through working together, I hope to support you in recognising and learning about your different parts, how to integrate them into your way of being rather than resisting them and keeping them hidden from yourself and others. I believe that no person is purely good or bad, that as humans we all have flaws, make mistakes, but that we can repair these, and work towards stronger relationships with ourselves and with others. We also have a huge capacity for great things, and these need celebrating in one another.

My philosophy as a practitioner is generated from a core belief that the relationships we have with ourselves and with others is at the centre of everything we do and who we are. This, therefore, underpins all aspects of my Integrative practice and my belief that all things effect everything, we cannot separate anything out. Nothing happens in isolation; we cannot be in relationship in isolation. 

I integrate theories that align in their philosophies, and where the therapeutic relationship that you and I develop, will in turn impact the quality of relationship you develop with yourself and others. When we have our experiences heard and understood the mind and body will connect and amazing healing experiences can be allowed.

All humans possess an innate drive to achieve their potential, an actualising tendency, a drive for fulfilment, and a striving to discover, maintain and develop psychological healing. I believe that you are the expert in your life, and I am simply here to walk alongside you as a support.

When choosing psychotherapy it is crucial that a connection (working alliance) is present between yourself and your therapist.  I therefore offer a no obligation initial 10 minute phone call to gain a sense of whether you would like to go ahead with a first session, at which we can get to know each other and decide if we would be comfortable working with one another. I offer both short & long term psychotherapy, online, telephone and face to face.

I work from Beeston, am very close to public transport and there is safe on street Parking and the train, tram and bus services are within walking distance.
