About me and my therapy practice

I am a highly qualified, experienced, and ethical psychotherapist and coach with a passionate belief that we all have the capacity to change and grow. The focus of my work is always to help you heal and flourish.

If you are being prompted to look for the unique support provided by a psychotherapist, counsellor or coach it can be difficult to know who to choose.

I work with adults and help people address a range of issues which include: feeling unable to cope with life events, feeling overwhelmed and suffering with stress, low self-esteem and chronic shame*, dysfunctional relationships, the difficulties experienced when we live with challenging patterns of behaviour or personality traits, the hardships of living with ADHD*, emotional or compulsive overeating*, problems related to alcohol*.

Our need for help can show up in a variety of ways, yours may not be mentioned above and if it isn't listed here you are still invited to get in touch, I will always welcome your enquiry and an opportunity to explore if I can help.

If you are a fellow practitioner or trainee therapist you will be here with your own understanding about therapy. I will welcome the opportunity to support you, either with therapy or, with my unique mentoring for private practice offer if that’s what brings you here.

If you have found yourself here, I hope you will contact me. I will welcome the opportunity to help you heal and flourish.

*Specialist expertise

Practice description

I am an evidence based practitioner which means how I work with you and the interventions I make are based on the best current, valid research evidence available.

I offer a safe, confidential, one to one, supportive relationship; working within the boundaries, principles, and values detailed within the BACP Ethical Framework.

I will always be holding our relationship in mind. Developing meaningful connection while experiencing a genuine sense of equality and collaboration, is the key to unlocking the door to transformative work; I work relationally throughout my practice.

My way of working is informal and relaxed. I don’t make any judgements or tell you what I think you should do. I listen carefully and provide a supportive collaborative relationship which facilitates your journey of healing leading to flourishing.

Being an Integrative Practitioner means I work in a way which draws on different theories and models from psychology, psychotherapy and neurobiology. My way of working rests on a philosophy and understanding that how we get into difficulties is dependent on our unique experiences so how I work is taillored to best fit your individual needs.

I provide services for individuals either, for a short time which may be for a few weeks, on a specific therapeutic coaching programme, or for longer term work, depending on your choice and needs. I work flexibility and I am always open to negotiate a mutually appropriate contract.

If you prefer to work in person, I am located on the border between East Lancashire and North Yorkshire where I have a welcoming and comfortable office which is convenient for Clitheroe and the Ribble Valley, Pendle, Skipton, Craven, the Yorkshire Dales, and surrounding areas. If you prefer to work online I am happy to work this way and I am qualified and experienced to do so.
