About me and my therapy practice

  • I understand that finding a therapist you feel comfortable talking to is so important. 
  • ​Counselling and psychotherapy are talking therapies and I offer a space where you can press pause on the outside world, allowing you to talk freely and without judgement.  
  • By reflecting back your thinking and gently questioning we will process your experiences, helping you to gain clarity and a deeper understanding so that you can move forward and heal.
  • I have always been interested in people and have worked in the health and social care sector for the past decade. 
  • I have worked with a many different people therapeutically, on a one-to-one level and in groups, across a variety of settings including: low secure forensic units, prisons, female only rehabs and on an open-ended basis in private practice.​

I hold the following qualifications:

  • British Association of Counsellors & Psychotherapists (BACP) accredited postgraduate diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy from the University of East London. ​
  • British Psychological Society (BPS) recognised Master of Science in Forensic Psychology from the University of Surrey. ​
  • BPS Bachelor of Science from Newcastle University. 

​​These trainings lasted for six years in total and whilst working in health and social care I completed a National Vocational Qualification (NVQ) in Tackling Substance Misuse and Working With Young People Experiencing Domestic and Sexual Violence.

Practice description

I am trained as an integrative therapist which allows me to use a range of therapeutic tools to fit your individual needs and therapeutic goals.

I think the best therapeutic work comes from a strong therapeutic bond based on trust and so the relationship between us will form part of our work together.

Depending on what makes sense to you, I will use a blend of:

  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
  • Humanistic
  • Gestalt
  • Psychodynamic approaches.

I offer sessions face-to face or via Zoom and these can be open-ended or time-limited. 

My first session

I offer a free, no obligation, telephone introductory session. This 10-15 minute chat allows us to be introduced and you can ask me any questions you might have about therapy, or the way I work. We will use this time to also start thinking about what you want from therapy.

Following our conversation there is no commitment for you to book any further sessions with me, I understand how important finding the right therapist is.

However, if you would like to begin working together we will book in our first session at this point.

​Our first session(s) will be slightly different from the rest of therapy as I will be doing a lot of the talking - we'll explore what brings you to therapy and what you want to gain from it. You can ask any questions and we will agree a rough plan of what we will work on. 

We will arrange a weekly (or fortnightly) day and time for our sessions.
