I’m an Integrative Psychotherapist, and draw on elements of TA, gestalt, existential, humanistic, CBT whenever this is relevant. I work with a relational/developmental model, and I can adapt this to working online and on the phone. (I worked on a statutory mental health crisisline a few years ago, and found that it was possible to establish a good working connection with clients over the phone). I’m also currently (2021) working with NHS staff probono viaFrontine19. I also offer supervision.
Integrative psychotherapist (postgraduate diploma UKCP), and supervisor. 12 years experience in private practice, and 5yrs in NHS within IAPT (CBT). The model I work with is relational/developmental. I have worked in statutory (crisis) mental health services. I currently work in private practice as therapist and supervisor. BA Hons (Class 1) Applied Social Studies.
I am a member of Scarborough Counselling and Psychotherapy Institute, an Associate Counsellor at the Tuke Centre, York, and am registered as a PODS therapist. I am registered with the Information Commission (data protection).
I have also worked as an Advocate, a parliamentary (MP) case-worker, in debt management and as a company director. I speak French, German and some Italian.

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.
