About me and my therapy practice

Hello, and a very warm welcome. Whatever is troubling you, whatever the stress or anxiety or trauma, let's work together gently and creatively to support your healing and moving forwards. I am an experienced counsellor and psychotherapist with over 10 years in practice helping and supporting adults.

I work either in person from a safe and confidential space in Croxley Green or Rickmansworth, and online.

As an integrative psychotherapist I practice in a warm and person-centred way working holistically and tailoring my skills to match your needs. I am trained in a number of modalities: psychodynamic, humanistic, existential and transpersonal psychotherapies. As well as the traditional ‘talking cure’, we can work with Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) and related energy therapies, mindfulness and meditation, body and breath work, multi-modal CBT, visualisation, drawing and working with your dreams and archetypal material.

I have also undergone specific trauma training and am able to see clients through the whole spectrum of trauma and dissociative disorders. I am a DID (dissociative identity disorder) friendly therapist.

First and foremost, our work together is centred on building a relationship where you feel safe and more at ease. My role is to understand what life is like for you as we work collaboratively to make sense of your experiences, to help you unearth the inner resources and personal qualities you already possess in order to cope better and find new ways of being and relating. 

As well as the issues listed below, and as a mother myself, I have a special interest in pregnancy and motherhood - what happens to a woman's identity at this time; and in fertility issues, antenatal or perinatal depression, postnatal depression and illness, birth trauma, and the trauma of losing a baby.

I look forward to working with you.

Practice description

Sessions are 50 mins in length and are usually weekly.

I work in person from a dedicated confidential space in Croxley Green and Rickmansworth.

I work online either via video (Zoom etc), voice calls, or email.

I also offer sessions via telephone.

I charge the same for both in person and online work primarily as I have a certificate in Cyber Therapy with the Online Therapy Institute.

As well as my Postgraduate Diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy (a five year training including foundation year), I am also a certified accredited EFT practitioner, MetaTapping practitioner, Matrix Reimprinting Practitioner and Matrix Birth Reimprinting Pratitioner.

EFT, also known as tapping, is a scientifically-proven technique for releasing emotional blockages from the body's energy system. It is a very safe and effective technique for the healing of trauma, PTSD, phobias and addictions, stress, anxiety and panic, depression, negative belief systems - it benefits most things, and results are usually very fast, with improved feelings of calm and wellbeing.

Matrix Reimprinting and Matrix Birth Reimprinting utilises EFT and visualisation techniques that offer a very effective way in processing and clearing deep trauma without having to relive the actual event and risk retraumatisation. They also help to uncover core unconscious negative beliefs and behavioural patterns and transform them. Matrix Birth Reimprinting helps to gently clear trauma and stress that took place at conception, in utero, birth, and the hours and days after being born. It is also helpful for infertility issues, loss of a child, miscarriage, abortion, and adoption.

My professional memberships include: Registered Member BACP, Accredited Member UKCP, ACTO (Association for Counselling and Therapy Online), EFT International.

My first session

To help you decide whether you would like to work with me I offer a free-of-charge preliminary chat lasting 15 to 20 minutes where you can find out more about me and how I work and I can answer any questions you may have.

If we decide to work together I will send you a pre-therapy questionnaire, therapy agreement and GDPR agreement. The pre-therapy questionnaire allows me to get to know a little more about you before our first session and is treated in the strictest confidence. The therapy agreement is a practical guideline for the framework of therapy while the GDPR agreement details how I use and store your personal information.

During our first session we will work collaboratively to address your goals and expectations for therapy and how we are going to work together to get you where you want to be. I often suggest beginning by simply looking at what is happening in your life right now, and everything else, your life story, the big life themes, tends to naturally evolve from this.

Depending on what happens in our first session, I may also introduce other creative ways of working and techniques like EFT.

If this is your very first time in therapy and you are understandably feeling nervous and not sure what to expect please be assured that the whole process will happen very naturally and will always go at your pace.

You may also decide I am not the right therapist for you, and that is absolutely fine; I will respect any decision you make. Likewise, if I feel that I am not the right therapist for you then I will make this clear and suggest other relevant therapist names and avenues of help.
