About me and my therapy practice

During the Covid-19 pandemic, I will be offering therapy sessions by phone, Zoom and VSee. I am compliant with BACP and UKCP guidance on working therapeutically, competently and ethically during this time.

This engagement with the emotional world can lead to acceptance, healing and growth on a profound level.

I hope, in working together, we can find a safe and accepting way to understand yourself better and give meaning to your inner world and authenticity to your experience. I look forward to hearing from you.
