My Approach

I practice Person-Centred and experiential psychotherapy. This is based on the work of Carl Rogers who believed it is inherent within all of us to grow and expand what it means to be us, to evolve to be the best version of ourselves possible, but that this natural tendency can be thwarted in adverse conditions. As challenging as this may sound he also provided much research which demonstrated that given the right conditions we are able to make the changes we seek. I am not a classically-orientated Person-Centred psychotherapist, I work very much with the experiential side of my training. The analogy I like to use is that of looking at a map; you tell me the direction you would like to go and I offer you different ways of getting there. I won't tell you which direction to go in, that's your choice, but I will help you navigate the path you choose.

Special Interests

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.

I support people who survived developmental trauma, whose formative experiences cannot always be put into words because the happened when they were so young. Not having clear memories does not mean what they endured did not have an impact. When an infant does not have their needs met, or has them met in unhealthy ways, the neonate finds alternative ways to survive. Survive, they do - but at a cost. This cost can involve not being able to connect with people, always feeling like one doesn't 'fit' in the world, of wanting connection but not knowing how to get it in healthy ways.
