My Approach

My training is as an Integrative Arts Psychotherapist, I support people to develop their own inner knowing using a variety of creative means. This could including talking, working with sensations in the body, images, metaphors, movement, dreams, postcards and drawing. Many people do not think of themselves as being creative, my specialism is in supporting more fluidity and possibilities in their day to day life. I have twenty years experience as a psychotherapist and have enjoyed working with a huge range of issues in a variety of settings including the NHS, University, a Trauma counselling service for women and in private practice.

About Me

I believe people can change. I believe it because I have seen it both with clients and in myself. No matter how lost, confused, anxious, depressed, stuck or frustrated you're feeling, things can change, you can gain greater clarity and feel more settled and at ease in the world. Using the arts enables you to connect to your inner knowing and awareness. You already have the capacity to make changes and have greater freedom in your everyday life, my role is to support and guide you in that process. You may want to develop more balance in your day to day life or enable more creativity and ease in your life. I can support you in that process to develop greater self acceptance.

Areas of interest include: Anxiety, Depression, long term health conditions, trauma, PTSD, developing more compassion for yourself and others, grief and loss, relationship difficulties, personal growth, developing intuitive knowing, developing effective communication, Issues related to childbearing - unexpected pregnancy, infertility, pregnancy, birth trauma, post natal depression, Assisting parents in gaining perspective and strategies in managing the challenges of parenting, recovering a sense of balance and well being. Working with dreams, the imagination and using the arts to support the psyche in finding new perspectives on troubling issues.

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.

Sometimes the way that grief and loss can affect people can be surprising. I am interested in helping people to notice and reflect on the ways that grief might be showing up and providing a supportive environment to allow space to be with all the feelings this process can bring up.
Chronic Illness and health related conditions can be debilitating and people can often have very critical inner voices in relation to what they can't do as a result of their health. I am experienced in providing a safe space to notice these patterns and enable people to find more compassion and acceptance for themselves and their condition.
The journey to becoming a parent can be a challenging one and the complex feelings that come up at different stages of a child's development can make it difficult to see the wood for the trees. I am committed to supporting parents and those who have suffered loss in their parenting experience, to find space and reflection to manage the many challenges of being a parent, a human being and in relationship with the other parents whether that is in the context of an ongoing relationship or in a co-parenting capacity.
Old patterns can often interfere with seeing what may be possible in current relationships. It can be difficult to recognise these patterns or feel able to set boundaries or speak up about issues that are challenging. I can support people to reflect on their relationships and find new ways to relate to others, including building confidence in speaking up about difficult issues and building more flexibility in relation to self and others.
