My Approach

I tailor therapy sessions for the individual client as each person will need something different. I believe in accepting the person as they are and that everyone has the capacity within themselves to heal. My main aim in therapy is to create a safe environment where my clients feel accepted and understood. At the heart of my work is the importance of the therapeutic relationship and that through this, the client will have different experiences of relating with others which leads to positive shifts, over time, in their lives. I bring sensitivity, warmth, empathy, creativity, curiosity, open-mindedness, and challenge to the therapeutic relationship and help clients explore their difficulties and strengths without judgment.
As some clients may find it difficult to express themselves, I use different methods that enable them to show what may be going on for them, in ways that feel safe and non-threatening.

About Me

I am an integrative psychotherapist qualified to work with children of all ages, young people and adults. I work in attachment and trauma informed way. I am trained to work with a broad range of tools including talking and play / arts therapy. I offer a variety of media, which could include sand, painting, drawing, clay, music, puppetry, movement, drama, storytelling and writing. I also provide reflective parenting sessions.

I work closely with parents and families. After an initial assessment period, it may be necessary to see both parent and child together and/or see the parents alongside individual child sessions. I work in partnership with you.
I offer reflective parenting sessions.
