About me and my therapy practice

Hi, and welcome to my profile.

I am a fully trained humanistic and integrative psychotherapist working with adults and young people. I provide a confidential, non-judgemental space where you can explore any difficulties you may be experiencing, for example in your relationships, your work environment, or significant life-events. You may be dealing with past trauma impacting you in the present and feel uncertain of how to move forward.

My approach focuses on establishing a meaningful therapeutic relationship and providing a safe environment for you to identify your needs and how best to fulfil them.

How therapy can help

You may be experiencing anxiety, depression, intrusive thoughts, changes in behaviour, unfamiliar feelings, sensations and difficult emotions, in turn impacting your daily life and relationships. I take a holistic integrative approach, addressing all aspects of the self by drawing on enhanced training and complimentary theoretical models to offer tailored therapy for each client.

Childhood relational and developmental trauma can have a significant impact on the way we relate to ourselves, others and how we approach life's difficulties in the here-and-now. Working collaboratively, I will provide support as you explore your past and current experiences, offering an empathic, compassionate, non-judgemental and genuine relational experience to help facilitate greater self-awareness, change, healing and growth. This enriched relational environment provides the space and opportunities for you to learn about yourself, identify your needs, to try new ways of being and embrace your true self.

Practice description

Experience and specialisms

I have experience working with diverse client presentations and areas of difficulty which may be impacting your life. These include relationship difficulties, trauma, addiction, self-harm, PTSD, abuse, depression, anxiety, ill health, personality disorders and low self-esteem. In addition, I have a particular interest and experience in bereavement work.

Death, grief and loss are part of everyday life, and can bring feelings of overwhelming sadness, guilt, regret, questioning our own existence and how we can possibly move forward while leaving our loved one behind. Many people find death and grief difficult to talk about, resulting in a sense of isolation at a time when we already feel lost. We may hear and feel societal messages of how grief should look, that we should be feeling better, be 'over it' and moving on, that we are not grieving 'the right way'. There is no right or wrong way to grieve, it is a fluid, unique experience. I specialise in this area, including working with complicated grief and traumatic bereavement, including death by suicide. I offer a space where you can freely talk about your loved one(s) as you need to, in your own time. This will allow you to process your feelings and integrate your grief, maintaining a continuing bond as you navigate your new world landscape. 

I also work with clients with, or impacted by, life-limiting illness. The emotions experienced with the knowledge of approaching death can be difficult to talk about. I provide a safe space to reflect, explore your wishes, your beliefs and to help you make peace with the process of dying. Such reflection can in turn help you to deeper connections with your loved ones.  

My first session

What to expect

I offer a free, initial 30-minute telephone or online consultation. This provides an opportunity for you to discuss what brings you to therapy at this time, what you would like to achieve, ask any questions you may have and see if I am the right "fit" for you. 

If you decide to proceed, I offer regular, weekly sessions lasting 50 minutes. The first session will include an assessment of your needs, your expectations of therapy and your aims and goals. Sessions can be in person, via telephone or online platform depending on your preference. 

I offer short or long-term therapy, with regular reviews to ensure a collaborative experience.
