About me and my therapy practice

Are you feeling anxious? Depressed? Low self-esteem? I offer therapeutic counselling using talking and creative therapy so you can plant the seeds of awareness and grow change in your life.

I (she/her) am a trained integrative psychotherapeutic counsellor, ecopsychotherapist and practising artist. I work with adults and adolescents struggling with anxiety, depression, grief, loss, low self-esteem, relationships, life direction, stress, burnout, trauma, attachment, creative blocks, insecurity, intimacy issues, abuse, sexuality, OCD, religion, family problems, money stories, spiritual disconnection, psychedelic integration and living abroad.

My training covered children, adolescents and adult treatments. This is important because so often when we are looking at our core wounds they are the conflicts of the inner child. These are the changes we make to ourselves at a young age to try and feel safe and loved. These adaptations and defence mechanisms developed in childhood may now feel limiting in adult life.

There are many different therapy approaches, but studies show it is the therapeutic relationship that mostly effects outcomes. So, when choosing a therapist, contact a few to see what feels right for you. Who feels comfortable to talk to? Who do you feel can hold the enormity of emotions? If you're wondering if this could be a good fit, please get in touch.

As an integrative therapist I have various healing modalities to draw from including art therapy, drama therapy, attachment theory, person-centred approach, Gestalt, body work and existential therapy. My training in Wild Therapy means I am also qualified to practise outdoors in nature. 

Practice description

Each person is the expert on their own healing journey. My integrative approach takes the lead from clients on what they need as there is no one-therapy-fits-all method. This means that each session can be different depending on what comes up in the session.

I use talking therapy and creative interventions such as body awareness, visualisation, Neuro-linguistic programming, EFT tapping and HAB breathwork where they may lead to the release of emotional blocks or insight. I will answer your questions and also challenge you in my attempt to be authentic and congruent in our relationship.

As an artist with a background in the corporate world, I can relate to those in business and creative fields.

I have also lived internationally in London, New York, Doha, Italy, Geneva and Berlin and can sympathise with the many challenges of living and working abroad.

I offer long-term work with clients, weekly or fortnightly, but have seen that the seeds of healing can be planted in the space of a few sessions.
