Due to COVID-19 I am currently providing Psychotherapy online and via telephone. This decision has been made to ensure the safety of client and therapist.
A highly qualified and experienced Psychotherapist in private practice in Shropshire. I have spent nine years working with the Armed Forces supporting service personnel and their families, alongside volunteering for mental health charities such as MIND and Frontline19. My positions have included the strategic and operational management of psychological wellbeing teams and clinical supervision of practitioners.
I am registered with the UKCP and specialise in working with adults, older people, couples and groups. I have an MSc in Integrative Psychotherapy and such I am able to draw upon a variety of theories, tools and skills including transactional analysis, developmental theory, attachment, object relations, gestalt and psychodynamics among others to support my work with a diverse range of clients. In my private practice I work both face to face and online with schizoid, borderline and narcissistic personality structures and presenting issues including but not limited to trauma, abuse, addiction, depression, anxiety, bereavement, life transition and relationship difficulties.
I have a strong track record of building and maintaining successful and effective relationships with clients. I provide and create bespoke treatment plans to ensure that each client receives individualised tailored support specific to their needs, empowering them to make positive changes in their lives. As a Psychotherapist, I am resilient, resourceful and conscientious, committed to upholding the UKCP professional conduct and ethical framework, applying these standards in all aspects of my work.
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.
