About me and my therapy practice

Perhaps you're going through something that's just too big to untangle alone, or maybe you feel you've got stuck and don't know how to move on from here. In my practice I create a sanctuary for my clients to retreat to within their present life, to come to a deeper clarity and discover new ways to move forward.

I am an existential therapist working within a pluralistic framework, which means that I offer a therapeutic approach which is bespoke to you, and also one that we envisage together.  Where it could be helpful I might suggest humanistic, psychodynamic, or cognitive behavioural approaches.

I have been in practice since 2011 and am an accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). In addition to private practice I have delivered therapy for young people in higher education, in cancer and hospice care, and in prison.

​I am additionally a senior university lecturer and trainer in Psychological Therapies and Mental Health. I also have a PhD modelling patterns of change in psychotherapy.

Practice description

One feature that's distinctive about my approach is a focus not just on what happens in the session, but in the days between sessions: with an eye to your growing awareness and significant moments in your life 'out there'.

And central to my approach is that I accept you for who you are, and you may find that your knowledge of who you are, and how you are out there in the world, becomes clearer during therapy.

I can offer therapy for those seeking help with depression, anxiety, family issues, feelings of aloneness, low self-esteem, sex and sexuality, bereavement and loss, shame and acceptance, physical symptoms and other health issues, spiritual concerns, fear of death and the search for meaning.

​You're welcome to contact me at any point with questions or queries. All sessions are charged at £60 and we have the option of meeting either in person at the Pure Treatment Rooms, Wetherby, online over Zoom, or over the phone.
