About me and my therapy practice

People often wonder if their issues are sufficient enough to seek therapy for. I always say that if something is bothering you then it is important enough to attend to. People seek therapy for very different reasons. Some may want a greater sense of personal power and to feel more grounded and at ease with themselves, whilst others may begin to start the recovery process of a past or ongoing trauma.

Within the therapy sessions I like to prioritise the relationship that develops between myself and you the client. It is through the process of building a meaningful therapeutic relationship that I believe personal insight to your issues and a deeper engagement with yourself can be reached. I feel strongly that as we are social beings; hardwired for connection, that when we go through turmoil and periods of distress, this should be processed within a supportive and nurturing relationship. We cannot expect ourselves to solely work through things alone.

I strive to provide a warm and empathic space where clients feel they can bring themselves to be heard and understood. I am interested in your unique subjective experience of who you are and what you bring to the sessions.

My work is informed by many different approaches which enables a more tailored fit for each client according to what they are bringing and wanting to work on. I draw from many psychotherapeutic theories such as humanistic, attachment and psychodynamic.

I can offer short term therapy or long term therapy with regular reviews.

I currently work as a counsellor for the student counselling service at Anglia Ruskin University in Cambridge and hold a private practice in Chesterton, Cambridge
