My aim is to provide a safe space for you to share and explore your thoughts, feelings, memories and hopes without judgement. My role is to hear your story and help you to gain the strength and confidence to navigate life's obstacles yourself. Therapy can be hard emotional work at times but I will support you and be alongside you on your personal journey. My hope for you is that you benefit from our time together and from giving yourself time to reflect on issues front of mind, and perhaps those that you keep hidden from view.
My training in psychodynamic practice underpins my work but will I also draw upon other modalities and methods depending on your needs.
I offer both short term counselling (typically six sessions) or longer psychotherapeutic work all delivered conveniently by phone or online.
I am an experienced and accredited counsellor and trained to Masters level at the University of Oxford. I work exclusively with adults, though my previous work and training with adolescents can be especially helpful in my work with clients who are also parents, or for people who experienced trauma at a young age. If you have experienced grief and loss, my training and volunteer work for Cruse Bereavement Care means that I am particularly able to support you.
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.
