About me and my therapy practice

When we sit together, you can talk about whatever it is you'd like to share. If you don’t know what to say, we can simply begin with that.

Maybe you need to tell your story and have it witnessed. Maybe you are seeking clarity around a specific problem. Maybe you are suffering a bereavement, or a separation. Maybe you’re hoping for a space in which you can simply cry, or rage, without being judged. It is all welcome.

My hope is that through working with me you will become more aware of what obscures your joy and what gets you closer to your truth. With this in mind, I help you to look for meaning. I think with you about how your past might be affecting the present. I encourage you to examine your fears and your shame, untangle beliefs that no longer serve you, and build on your muscle for self-compassion.

What is created through therapy is a relationship. I therefore use the relationship that we build together as a doorway into understanding other relationships in your life. I might also invite you to explore what is happening in your body when you are experiencing emotion, as the body is a remarkable access point into feelings.

I am deeply respectful of difference. I endeavour to investigate my biases and I welcome people of any gender identity, sexuality, background, or with any relationship style.

I trained at The Minster Centre. I hold an Advanced Diploma in Integrative Psychotherapy & Counselling and I am currently completing an MA, also at The Minster Centre.
