My Approach

I trained originally in Gestalt but would describe myself as Integrative in my approach. I teach Integrative Psychotherapy at a number of institutes across Europe and am secretary of EAIP ( European Association for Integrative Psychotherapy) I also supervise a number of Gestalt and Integrative psychotherapists. My approach to Integration is relational developmental and very much compassion focused. I see the therapeutic relationship as core both in psychotherapy and in psychotherapy supervision. I am also influenced by the Polyvagal theory of Stephen Porges. This means supporting clients to better regulate affect and manage painful memories and developmental trauma -working on having more fulfilling relationships and being able to live life more fully and creatively. For me support and connection are the antidotes to shame.

About Me

I have resettled in UK following the untimely death of my husband several years ago. I enjoy working with clients, supervising and teaching. I feel privileged to have so many connections in Europe and to have seen so many trainee psychotherapists blossom and graduate. I have been travelling less due to the pandemic so have a large practice online and appreciate the scope this way of working gives us to connect with people who are many miles away.
I keep fit by walking my Romanian rescue dog, being in nature and my garden and through yoga therapy. Spending time with family and friends is important to me. I also enjoy keeping up to date through reading- therapy books and literature. I'm concerned about our ability to connect with each other, with wider purpose and meaning, and about the future of our planet.
