I take a holistic view on emotional health and well-being. I offer relational, conversation-based therapy, and I also integrate somatic (body) work and and creative arts therapies in my practice.
Are you a highly sensitive, thoughtful, creative and/or gifted person? Do you need some support with anxiety, depression, overwhelm or trauma-related issues?
I offer a weekly space for you to share your story, reflect on your thoughts and feelings, and get some emotional support to help you figure out what you need in order to feel better.
I am an integrative psychotherapist trained in psychodynamic, humanistic and existential modalities, as well as body-based and creative therapies.
My specialism is in early relational (childhood) trauma. This is a type of trauma that stems from emotional disconnection in our early relationships. You may have had an early bereavement in the family, or you grew up in a home that lacked emotional warmth. Perhaps you felt criticised and belittled as a child, or you had to walk on egg shells in case someone got angry.
In adulthood, our early life experiences may show up as symptoms of anxiety or depression, low motivation, and an inner emptiness. You may lack direction in life and wonder: 'Who am I?'
In our work together, we may reflect on some of the following areas:
- Who you are, and what you want in life
- Self-care: Identify stressors, needs and boundaries
- Early life experiences and subsequent life story
- How to manage difficult thoughts and feelings
- Your personal relationships
- The ways you may self-sabotage or hold yourself back
- How to heal and grow after trauma
I have a special interest in working with individuals who identify as highly sensitive (HSP), creative and/or gifted.

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.
