I am a qualified Jungian Analytical Psychotherapist and trained with the West Midlands Institute of Psychotherapy, of which I am a Professional Member.
I can offer you treatment which can help with understanding and working to resolve issues which make you feel unhappy in your life.
Before becoming a psychotherapist, I was a Registered Mental Health Nurse and Specialist Practitioner in mental health. As a nurse I became very interested in emotional trauma, how self-destructive patterns can develop out of trauma and in relationships, and the possibilities for healing and change that can occur by using the professional therapeutic relationship.
I am particularly interested in the effects of early relational trauma.
I used my MSc in Advanced Nursing Practice to further develop my understanding of the life changing and life enhancing possibilities in the therapeutic relationship. Prior to this I had acquired a BSc (Hons) in Health Care Practice and undertook courses in psychodynamic psychotherapy, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and group analysis.
I have nearly 25 years’ experience working in the NHS in the field of mental health and mental wellbeing. I spent many years working in senior nursing positions at inpatient ward level, working to bring about change. I have also worked in the community as a mental health nurse working with people with complex mental health difficulties and as a psychotherapist within the NHS.
Overall my passion is to understand and work with the whole of life experience which brought me to the work of C.G. Jung and my training as an Analytical Psychotherapist. Jungian Psychotherapy seeks to help you to understand, explore and speak about the full range of your life experience, and, as such, with the support of the therapeutic relationship, possibilities for healthy change can occur.
Please contact me by email or phone to arrange an initial appointment to meet to discuss the issues that have led you to seek help from a therapist. Sessions last for 50 minutes and I see people between one and four sessions per week as required.
I offer concessions in payment subject to personal financial circumstances.
My confidential and private practice is on a frequently served bus route and the bus stop is immediately outside my premises or across the road dependent on which route you take.
The South Wigston rail station is about 15-20 minutes’ walk from my address.
I have an accessible downstairs toilet but unfortunately, do not have wheelchair access.
