About me and my therapy practice

I am a qualified and accredited Psychotherapist, Counsellor and EMDR Practitioner, registered with the UKCP and the EMDR Association UK. I offer therapy tailored to the individual’s need and support people aged 18 and above.

I have experience of working with many issues, including stress, anxiety, depression, trauma, loss, sleep problems, pain, ocd and phobias. For several years I have worked in a busy Rehabilitation Centre working with Firefighters and their families aswell as Prison Officers and Ambulance Personnel. Through this work, I fully appreciate the impact of injury, long term health conditions, pain, physical and psychological trauma.

I am an Integrative Therapist which means I draw on several modalities of therapy, those being Transactional Analysis, EMDR and Solution Focussed Therapy, and I also integrate Mindfulness and CBT techniques. Creative interventions may also be introduced. There is no ‘one size fits all’ approach in therapy, and so being able to draw on a range of therapeutic approaches enables me to tailor the therapy to your needs.

Mental health issues can have an impact on our daily lives affecting our thoughts, feelings and behaviours. Daily worries can develop into longer term problems and seeking professional support can help you move through and beyond these.

I work in a non-judgemental and supportive way, giving you the protected space to explore your feelings and emotions and identify areas of change and goals. We work together aiming to achieve these, whilst I facilitate you in understanding thoughts and feelings.

In recent years, I have developed my skills and have undertaken advanced training in therapeutic approaches to trauma-related difficulties, including PTSD.

I am engaged in continuous professional development (CPD) activities, which includes supervision and advanced training.

About me and my therapy practice

Working with people is relational; it brings interpersonal challenges, vulnerabilities, shared experience, intersubjective processes, all of which enrich the supervisory experience and enables growth.

I work in a non-judgemental and supportive way, giving you the protected space to explore your work. I see supervision as a holistic process, where we explore all influencing factors on your client work, your processes, where you are in your learning and development and what you need to support your growth.

We co-create the space between us, and through a collaborative working alliance, I aim for the supervisory process to be a transformative experience.


Practice description

I offer face to face sessions as well as online and telephone sessions.

Supervision sessions can be up to 90 minutes in duration for individuals and held in person or via telephone or online platforms. Group supervision sessions can be longer in duration depending on numbers.
