About Me

Are you considering online therapy during the Covid-19 pandemic?

Physical distance does not prevent genuine meeting.

Psychological pain can itself be understood as a story of proximity and distance. You may feel too close to unsettling thoughts and feelings, tangled up in unsatisfactory relationships, or remote from your emotional experience and cut off from others.

Therapy too - whether conducted remotely or in person - is all about negotiating the dimensions of a space that feels safe and right to make sense of your experience and tend to what feels wounded.

My role as an experienced online therapist is to create that space with you and to sensitively locate myself in relation to you, not so close that you’re made to feel encroached upon, not so far that you’re made to feel abandoned or alone.

How I work:

I am an integrative psychotherapist drawing on different different but complementary theories and techniques, and the latest psychotherapy research, to help you experience a greater sense of wholeness, wellbeing and security in your self.

I am particularly sensitive to the role that shame can play in mental suffering and the barrier it poses to self-understanding and to positive, compassionate action.

The therapy I practice involves sensitively working through shame to support self-acceptance, growing your courage to change what you can change, and to mourn what you cannot.
