About me and my therapy practice

I am an experienced integrative Psychotherapist offering both in-person and online sessions. As an integrative therapist, I am skilled in different theoretical approaches (humanistic, psychodynamic and cognitive behavioural) which I draw on according to what works best for you and your own thoughts and feelings about what you want to change.

My clinical experience is in the NHS, offering time-limited, goal-orientated sessions, and in my private practice there is time and space for more in-depth exploratory, relational work.

Foundation Certificate in Counselling skills (WPF Therapy)

Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), meaning I adhere to the organisation’s codes of ethical and professional conduct.

Practice description

"If you want to know your past, look at your present circumstances. If you want to know your future, look at what is in your mind" - Matthieu Ricard

My approach is humanistic, and relational, which means I recognise your innate potential to be the best version of yourself, and I believe in the power of human relationships to help you realise your potential. My practice is also informed by psychodynamic psychotherapy; I am keenly aware of the role the past has played on the present, how your early life experiences have shaped your personality, your core beliefs and how you relate to yourself and others in your life today, often in ways you are not consciously aware of. 

Therapy is an opportunity to free yourself from your past and find out who you really are, instead of who you think you are supposed to be. We will work together to uncover the causes of your difficulties and develop new ways of being, to help you engage in the present moment, and to live with more authenticity, equanimity and compassion. 

“There are only two days in the year that nothing can be done. One is called yesterday and the other is called tomorrow, so today is the right day to love, believe, do and mostly live” – Dalai Lama 

My first session

Please get in touch to arrange an initial session. This is a chance for us to meet and for you to think about whether you might find therapy helpful, and whether my way of working chimes with you. 

I follow the BACP code of ethics and all my clinical work is professionally supervised.

If you are thinking about therapy, unsure about how it works, or how it might help you, please email or phone me on 07729985821.
