About me and my therapy practice



I am  a qualified  Counsellor  and Psychotherapist (Integrative-Relational) and initially trained with  CRUSE, a national bereavement charity, before undertaking  professional qualification. My original career background was based  in coaching, training and recruitment.  I have a special interest in delivery therapy support for  the Carers Network, as well as  working in private practice.  I  also live  with non-visible disabilities, that  have ultimately serve to inform and enrich my empathy, acceptance and understanding,  and to broaden the scope of my practice. 

Integrative(Relational) training has given me knowledge of how to utilize  a range of approaches, in attempting to understand the issues at heart, as well as the skills to collaborate and craft a bespoke response and approach  with  individual clients. This approach is fully guided by the  professional standards of safe, ethical practice, bound by the BACP.  I am fully insured and supported by a  experienced and senior clinician.

Practice description

My approach is strongly invested in the nurture of a one to one relationship, that is  confidential, respectful and always Kind.  After a few sessions, You will decide if we are a 'fit' and if trusting in a therapeutic  relationship,  has the potential to support and help.  If yes, then we can build on this knowledge,  and work to create a trustful, safe place in which to explore the key events in your life,  - relationships, stress, pain, hurt  and loss;  the secret history of inner and outer worlds both past and present. I  will listen with compassion and care for your well-being, always.

As an Integrative therapist, I may draw on elements of psycho-dynamic,  person-centered and humanistic theories to gain a shared insight and understanding  of your personal narrative, that in time,  may in turn  inform and enable your choices for the way ahead.  I will also be drawing on  a wide range of creative resources to support our work together.
