About me and my therapy practice


I’m an Integrative Counsellor/Psychotherapist with a particular interest in how philosophy and creativity can help deepen our relationships with ourselves, others and with the world around us.

I think that having a dedicated space to reflect upon and explore our experiences - perhaps more freely than we might feel able to ordinarily - can engender new perspective, self-knowledge, and change. I see a trustworthy therapeutic relationship as being fundamental to this and aim always to be a genuine, collaborative, and human presence.

I tend to see the sorts of things that bring us to therapy as being quite existential issues that might touch each life in a unique way depending on our personal histories, social contexts, worldviews, beliefs and values. Inevitably though we will each meet with challenge and contradiction - therapy can be a place to step outside of the current of daily life and to consider these experiences in an intentional way as to inform how we might want to move forward.

What this looks like will be different for each person; sometimes a space to think about if and how we’re using our particular capacities and talents, and to what end; sometimes a place to examine how the past is impacting the present; sometimes as a vehicle to think about how we experience relationships; and sometimes as a broader, more ongoing, exploration of our own lives and ways of being. Sometimes just having a space to speak some stuff out loud and have it heard is enough to loosen what feels knotted. 

Practice description

My training is in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy, so I’m open to drawing on aspects of different therapeutic approaches. Primarily I aim to listen in an attentive and reflective way, to try and understand as best I can what life is like for you, whilst also offering my own responses and reflections as prompts for further discussion, or as something for us to wonder about together. I work in a collaborative manner and welcome feedback and review throughout.
