I have a holistic approach to helping people overcome their difficulties and live happier lives. The ethos of my practice is about providing a safe space for people to reflect and explore various aspects of their lives and their relationships, and support them in developing better ways of managing life and the challenges of life. This is all done with a caring, non-judgmental approach.
I am a Psychotherapist with a passion for helping people overcome their difficulties and live happier lives. I have over ten years of experience as a psychotherapist and I am registered with UKCP (UK Council for Psychotherapy) and AFT (Association for FamilyTherapy).

MSc in Child, Adolescent & Family Mental Health at the Metropolitan University.

I have worked in various mental health settings (NHS and Private) providing individual psychotherapy, couple therapy and family therapy. My desire to help others has allowed me to approach therapy from a non-judgmental, caring and supportive position and to provide a therapeutic service that is individualized to the person’s needs. This is reflected in the way I work and my approach to therapy.
Specialism and interest include, Eating disorders, stress management, anxiety, depression, couples therapy, family therapy, relationship difficulties, parent/child relationships, developing positive self-identity.
I have supported people’s recovery for anorexia, binging eating disorders, bulimia and other eating disorders. I believe that recovery encompuses the physical and psychological and I have a holistic approach to recovery which includes exploring all aspects of the person’s life that may be having an adverse impact on them.
I have supported people in their recovery from anxiety and depression both within the child and adolescent population and within the adult population, helping people to develop coping strategies and patterns of behaviour that allows them to manage their anxiety and to improve their mood and live happy lives.
I believe that it is important for clients to feel comfortable during the therapeutic process and the importance of a good client/therapist relationship. At the heart of my clinical practice is someone who is caring and compassionate and understands the importance of creating a safe space to explore feelings and emotions. I am adept at helping clients explore and navigate relationships within their family and the wider society and also helping them to explore their relationships with food and eating and explore the unhelpful patterns that they may have developed. My therapeutic work is collaborative with clients to help them deconstruct the factors that impact them emotionally and to support them in developing the emotional resilience to manage complex situations and emotions.
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.
