I am an Integrative psychotherapist, working over both the short and long term. I place great importance on building a relationship of trust and security with my clients, in order to help us explore present troubles, consider the influence of the past and find hopes for the future. It is sometimes hard to face difficulties without help from someone who can both support and challenge us, but with this help I believe that positive change is always possible.
I have many years of experience of working in health services with people in emotional distress or trying to find more positive ways to live. Many have faced traumas and challenges in their lives, including bereavements, illness, abuse and addiction. This has sharpened my awareness of the tenacity of past hurts, but also given me a great respect for human resilience and powers of recovery.
We can meet for one or two initial sessions to explore what you wish to find from therapy, and to decide if I am the right person for you to see. I am most happy for you to talk to me over the telephone to discuss making an initial appointment; if I am not available when you first call, do leave your details and I will ring you back as soon as I can.
I have completed UKCP Covid-19 Online Working Guidance
