About me and my therapy practice

I am a fully qualified counsellor/psychotherapist (psychodynamic, person centred, CBT, creative) and registered member with the bacp.

I am also a member of both the HCPC and BAAT professional bodies am fully insured and hold a current DBS certificate.

My approach is integrative which essentially means I find the approach most suited to you by weaving together theoretical approaches from my rigorous training.

I offer a safe space to allow us to think together about what you are facing in your life, understand trauma, fears and losses, and identify barriers to growth and how to connect with your potential. You may be looking for short solution-based therapy or longer term in-depth relational work. I offer both. 

Practice description

By providing you with a non-judgemental safe space to explore your thoughts and feelings I can assist with learning, healing, understanding and growth.

I have experience of working with anxiety, depression, domestic abuse, trauma, relationship issues, addiction, loss and bereavement, suicidal thoughts and early psychosis. In addition to my private practice I have experience providing counselling in the charity sector and NHS and am currently working for a COVID-19 bereavement service. I am also involved in lived-experience-research of an 18 month NHS mentalization based art therapy programme.

Throughout COVID-19 I have been working online. My services are offered remotely on multiple platforms and by telephone.
