About me and my therapy practice

 You may be feeling stuck or overwhelmed by specific experiences or circumstances, or you may be unsure why you don’t feel happy. Perhaps this feeling that something is wrong is recent, or you might have been struggling with it for a long time. Our environment, and the ways that we are seen by other people, can leave us feeling pressurised, dismissed or misunderstood. Together, we can work to explore and understand your experience, allowing you to process some of the painful feelings which have left you feeling distressed.

Working sensitively at a pace that suits you, we can explore how you are feeling without judgment. Acknowledging your social reality, we can also be curious about unconscious beliefs which have created patterns of thought that no longer serve you, and we can work together to release those patterns, freeing you to move forward. Evidence demonstrates that engaging with another person in a relational style of therapy allows the potential for deep change, rather than managing symptoms.

 I am a fully qualified and insured counsellor and psychotherapist with particular interest and experience in working with childhood trauma, family (including sibling) issues, disability and chronic health conditions. I have ample experience of working with anxiety, depression, trauma, loss and relationship difficulties.

My core training is in psychodynamic psychotherapy, although I draw on a humanistic therapeutic foundation to combine the rigour of psychoanalytic understanding with a warm, empathic approach which meets you where you currently are. I am a Registered Member of the BACP and I abide by their ethical framework, including ensuring your confidentiality.

Practice description

I work over Zoom, or by phone, and can offer both short-term or open ended therapy depending on individual needs. Embarking on a therapeutic journey can feel daunting, and finding the right therapist can be difficult, so I offer an initial no-obligation 15 minute Zoom consultation. This is an opportunity to discuss any questions that you may have and to think about how we might work together. Please do send an email and we can arrange to talk.

I'm a registered provider for WPA Health Insurance.
