About me and my therapy practice

 I use a theory called Transactional Analysis (TA) which is a way of exploring how our childhood decisions impact how we see the world today. TA is based around the idea that all people are fundamentally ‘ok’ and equal in their humanness.

I believe that being seen and heard is incredibly healing. I work relationally, which means that the relationship between client and therapist is at the heart of the therapeutic experience. A sense of connection and the experience of being understood enables a safe space to explore the challenges and difficulties life can present.

I come from an Arts background and use creativity in therapy sessions if this resonates with you.

I have regular clinical supervision with a qualified supervisor to ensure that I am supported in providing you with the best possible service.


Practice description

 I work with short and longer term adult clients with a wide range of presenting issues.

I have particular experience in working with those who are Neurodivergent, including those with a diagnosis (or suspected diagnosis) of Autism, Dyspraxia, Dyslexia and ADHD.

I have worked in the NHS with people with complex needs, using a range of therapeutic approaches including Mentalisation. I have had specialist brain injury training and gained experience working with people who have an acquired brain injury and their carers.

I have extensive experience working in homelessness prevention. During the course of this work I have supported people in crisis, working in areas such as addiction and domestic violence
