About me and my therapy practice

I am a fully qualified, BACP registered (MBACP) person-centered and experiential psychotherapist, educated to MA level. I offer face-to-face and online, individual (one-to-one) therapy for a range of issues including abandonment, anxiety, bereavement, complex trauma, depression, PTSD, victims/perpetrators of abuse, etc. 

As a person-centred & experiential psychotherapist I believe that our deepest yearnings are to grow and to form nurturing relationships. However, life is hard, and these natural tendencies can become compromised or inhibited through difficult experiences. We can even lose sight of them altogether. When this happens we often feel stuck. At worst, we can arrive at a profound sense of estrangement from ourselves.

As we can lose ourselves through problematic or even toxic relationships, so we can find ourselves again through more accepting and nurturing ones. It has been my experience that the therapeutic relationship can facilitate lasting change and growth. It does so by offering a client certain conditions - empathy, acceptance, and genuineness. Person-centred practitioners regard these conditions as essential to therapy, as it is through them that the client begins to feel safe enough to explore difficult thoughts, feelings and memories that may hitherto have been denied or suppressed.
