About Me

I am an integrative psychotherapist and counsellor currently and have experience working with clients across a broad range of issues including trauma, domestic abuse, health anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, bereavement (including loss of a beloved pet), and adverse childhood attachment experiences. I have experience working with secondary school age children and with undergrad and postgrad students within a university counselling department. I offer a confidential, warm, empathic and non-judgmental space for you to reflect on any areas of your life you may be struggling with.

For me, therapy is about accepting my client as a unique human being, whose individual beliefs create distinctive characteristics that will inform what is needed for their therapy to be successful and I draw upon a wide range of theories to fit the uniqueness of each individual client. I understand distress varies from person to person, and believe that relying on one modality of therapy alone will not be effective for everyone. Integrative psychotherapy embraces individuality and values the full range of levels of functioning including behavioural, cognitive, affective and physiological as well as the spiritual dimension of life. My relational approach to my practice is informed by the relationship formed with my client as a crucial aspect to the therapeutic process and effectiveness of the work we undertake together depends heavily on developing a deep connection through the essential qualities of receptive and reflective listening.

I take a committed approach to continual professional development by attending regular conferences and seminars and have a keen interest in the body mind connection and the wisdom held in the body. I am a UKCP accredited psychotherapist and I adhere to the UKCP code of ethics (see below link). I maintain professional indemnity insurance.

I will offer you an initial assessment session with the aim of understanding what has brought you to therapy and to explore what success may look like for you. I work on both a short and long term basis, whichever suits your needs.
