About me and my therapy practice

Making the decision to come to therapy can be difficult. My approach is to establish a trusting relationship within which we can explore the issues that brought you to that decision to seek help. I work supportively, with some challenge, so that we can re-examine and change your ways of living when these are not working for you.


I am a BACP-registered counsellor and UKCP-accredited psychotherapist with seven years’ public and private sector experience, which includes long- and short-term work. I hold a first class psychology degree, a diploma in Psychodynamic Counselling and an MSc in Integrative Psychotherapy. In addition to private practice I currently work with NHS patients diagnosed with personality disorder. I have worked in charity settings such as Samaritans, Cruse and Mind.

My integrative training includes CBT, Psychodynamic and Relational approaches, which means I can work with you to change unhelpful ways of behaving and thinking, as well as exploring deeper-seated emotional issues and problematic relating patterns originating in your childhood.

Areas I have had working experience in include: depression, anxiety, OCD, self-harm, suicidality, low self-esteem, the effects of trauma, 'borderline' personality disorder, and bereavement and loss.
