About me and my therapy practice
I support adults with anxiety to live a more balanced life.
If you are experiencing physical symptoms such as headaches, IBS, joint pain or fibromyalgia, your body may be literally carrying or holding the weight of your anxiety. We can consider whether a more holistic approach will help you – exploring the connection between your physical symptoms and your anxiety.
I can support you to look at aspects of your life and help you to identify patterns, develop strategies and further insight and perspective to resolve personal issues and find new ways forward.
I welcome the opportunity to work alongside you as we explore what life is like for you; exploring ways to cope with your challenges, and understanding and developing your way of being. As a humanistic and integrative therapist, I have a flexible and holistic approach, tailoring your therapy to your personal circumstances and needs as a unique individual.
I am an experienced face-to-face and online psychotherapist and counsellor, currently working mainly online, via video and telephone. I use a variety of platforms, such as Zoom, to best suit your needs.
I work in private practice in Rickmansworth and online. I have worked as a volunteer counsellor at Mind and worked at a practice in Bishop's Stortford.
I have a post-graduate diploma and MA in psychotherapy and counselling from Regents University London.
I have additional training as a certified cyber therapist with the Online Therapy Institute and am a Professional Member of the Association for Counselling and Therapy Online (ACTO).
I have recently undertaken a research project on the lived experience of chronic pain and the implications for psychotherapy.
I am mainly working online at present. Face-to-face sessions may be possible in exceptional circumstances following online assessment.
You are welcome to contact me with any questions or concerns you have.
I understand that this can seem a daunting process - I offer a free 20 minute phone call so that we can discuss how I can best support you.
My first sessionThe first session is an opportunity for us to introduce ourselves and for you to think about whether you would like to work with me. We discuss what has brought you to therapy, and I will ask for some information on your family history and current circumstances as well as to talk through any questions or concerns you have.
