About me and my therapy practice

My core approach is person-centred and so I value the quality of the therapeutic relationship above all else, working towards relational depth.  Training in Play therapy has inspired me to use a creative approach to therapy, where possible, including art and story work alongside talking therapy.  This route has also developed my interest in attachment theory and developmental trauma.  I find that EMDR and EFT can be highly effective in working with trauma.  I strongly believe in the uniqueness of each person's experience and needs and so I will involve you in exploring the approach most suitable for you. 

Practice description

I have been working as a therapist for 30 years and have trained in various approaches such as person-centred, play therapy, couples therapy, EFT and EMDR.  Essentially I believe in the inner wisdom of each person to know how best to resolve their difficulties and I see my contribution as collaborative, drawing on all of my professional and personal experience.  Attachment theory has given me a great interest in how early experience shapes our lives and it has been fascinating to see how neuroscience has backed this up.

My first session

This is the main session for finding the best approach although the approach is always open to revision.  Together we will explore your personal history to establish how best I can support your counselling journey
