I offer a relational and integrative approach. Being an integrative psychotherapist means my sessions incorporate several approaches
including humanistic, transpersonal, and psychodynamic. This is beneficial as I can adopt an approach that is most suitable for you. As well as traditional talking therapy, when appropriate and if comfortable for you, I use body work, the use of movement, and creative tools including art, drama, and dream work as an alternative way to work.
Finding a therapist can feel daunting. How will you know if the therapist is right for you? There’s only so much you can determine from a photograph or from a brief bio about a therapist. Therefore, I suggest we have a chat beforehand where we get to know each other a little and see whether we can work together. This would be no longer than 20 minutes and is an important first step to establishing whether we can imagine a relationship together.
I see clients either in person or online. I also meet clients outside and offer walking therapy as the interaction between nature and mental health can be beneficial, offering a unique and relaxing way of experiencing therapy.
There’s something inherently healing about being seen and heard. I see psychotherapy as something you can offer to yourself.
You are giving yourself the time, space, and support to safely explore anything, at your own pace. This is part of self-care, of being kinder to yourself, whatever that means to you. Therapy can be difficult but it can also be enjoyed.
There are countless challenges in life. Relationships, life changes, work, loss, depression, loneliness… You could be reading this for many different reasons. Perhaps you want more joy, peace, connection, creativity, self esteem, or to have a greater sense of purpose and meaning.
Psychotherapy can be for everyone, whatever the issue, whatever your aspiration. Wherever you are at in life, whatever you want to achieve, I
offer you safe, confidential space and support to explore these things.
My particular interest is in fear, anxiety, phobias, depression, envy, procrastination, body image, and those seeking purpose and meaning in life.
It can feel daunting to seek help for things that we might not even want to think about let alone share. Sharing our thoughts and feelings can lighten the weight of them, help you see things clearly to find a way through.
Working in an integrative way means I cater to your unique needs. We work together, in a gentle, creative way, to get to know you better.
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.
