About me and my therapy practice

Taking the first steps in finding the right therapist can be difficult, I hope that reading my profile makes you feel at ease, and I am able to work with you on your therapeutic journey.

I am a Psychotherapist with specialist interest and knowledge of working with adults, adolescents, and children affected by early childhood developmental and attachment trauma, bereavement, loss and grief. Other areas of experience are Anger management, Anxiety, adverse childhood experiences, Cultural issues, Depression, Identity, Personal development, Relationship difficulties, Self-esteem, Self-harm, Stress, Suicidal ideation.

Do you identify with any of the following statements?

I struggle to share my emotions

I am finding it hard to answer the question ‘who am I?

Due to a complex family history, I am conflicted about my identity

I feel a pressure to be or act a certain way

I change my opinions or preferences regularly to fit in socially

As a pluralistic therapist I value difference and approach my client work with and open mind. Thus, ensuring you can discuss your preferences and together we work towards you achieving your therapeutic aims & goals. I use varied client led interventions which can include person-centred, solution focused, brief and psychodynamic therapy.

I can also use creative therapies which may consist of poetry, art, or sand tray therapy. I find being able to work with a variety of mediums allows my clients to express their emotions when they find voicing their feelings difficult.

First-hand personal experience of the care system from being in care myself, to then becoming a foster carer and qualified Social Worker, has allowed me to truly empathise with those of similar experience. These experiences have also given me an understanding of the importance of being truly heard, accepted for who you are and having a safe space in which to share concerns and worries.
