About me and my therapy practice

Are you looking for someone to listen and truly understand your story? I offer confidentiality, respect, compassion and acceptance whilst coming to understand you and how you wish to make changes in your life. I offer a safe space for exploration of your experiences in a collaborative manner, at your pace and depth. Being trained integratively, I am able to draw upon a variety of theoretical knowledge and therefore able to tailor my approach to your individual needs.

I am an Integrative Psychotherapist offering face-to-face, online and telephone appointments; believing in the power of the Therapeutic Relationship in aiding people to find a more satisfying way of living. I have a BA Honours in Counselling and Psychotherapy, a PGDip in Integrative Psychotherapy and currently completing my Masters alongside additional trauma training.

I work with a variety of issues including depression, anxiety, bereavement, self-esteem, drug and alcohol abuse and rehabilitation, trauma, sexual abuse and sexual assault.

DBS check in place.

My first session

The first step in making contact with a therapist can be daunting but can be the best move you make.

I offer a free 20 minute telephone or zoom consultation to decide whether we may be able to work together, discuss appointments along with a brief overview of your goals. For therepy to work, it is essential we are comfortable and honest with each other to build a trusting and collaborative relationship.

The first session will incorporate contracting and further assessment, yet this may be completed via email so we can get to work together sooner.
