About Me

As an Integrative Humanistic Psychotherapist, I draw on a range of theories and methods to facilitate each client's development in mind, body and soul and have a particular interest in how our early experiences shape our understanding of ourselves and others. I am warm and empathic and work with a wide range of presenting problems, both short and long term, to meet the individual needs of each client.
Since qualifying in 2015, I have practised in a range of settings, including private practice, a GP surgery and charities and have completed additional training in the fields of suicide prevention, domestic abuse and childhood trauma.
I hold a BSc honours degree, a Post Graduate Diploma, a Diploma in Psychotherapy (adult specialism), Post-Qualifying Diploma in Child Psychotherapeutic Counselling, Certificate in Supervision, a Certificate in Couples Counselling and a L3 Award in Education and Training. I am working towards a Diploma in Supervision.

“Before every session, I take a moment to remember my humanity. There is no experience that this man has that I cannot share with him, no fear that I cannot understand, no suffering that I cannot care about, because I too am human.
No matter how deep his wound, he does not need to be ashamed in front of me. I too am vulnerable. And because of this, I am enough. Whatever his story, he no longer needs to be alone with it. This is what will allow his healing to begin.”
Carl Rogers.
