About me and my therapy practice

I am a counsellor and psychotherapist with over 25 years of experience. I offer a safe space where you can explore the areas of your life that are causing you distress or dis-ease. I will help you understand your thoughts and feelings and discover what is meaningful to you in your life.

I have extensive experience in working with all kinds of childhood trauma and a special interest in boarding school trauma.

I currently offer therapy online and face to face.  I offer a free 30 minute initial session in person or online to explore whether we would want to work together.

Practice description

I am an Integrative therapist and the three models I integrate are: person-centred, psychodynamic and existential.

What this means in practice is that at the core of my therapy is the offer of a safe space in which you will be valued, respected and heard. I believe that the past often impacts the present so it is likely that we will explore some of the past events in your life in order to understand how they may be holding you back in the present. We may also attend to what is meaningful to you in your life and how you might live better and more authentically.

I have an MSc in Counselling and Psychotherapy from the University of Surrey and a Diploma in Integrative Counselling from Guildford College.

I work both short and long term with adults who have a range of issues such as childhood trauma including sexual abuse, eating disorders, mental health issues, drug and alcohol issues, boarding school syndrome, anxiety, depression, self-harm, stress, identity issues.

I have worked in a range of settings including student counselling, drug and alcohol counselling services, rape and sexual abuse counselling service, and private practice.

I also provide clinical group and individual supervision to counsellors who are in training and those who are already qualified.
