About me and my therapy practice

I'm an integrative therapist, which means I work differently with each client, drawing on different elements of theory and practice to create a way of working that is unique to the presenting needs. I have been trained in a broad spectrum of approaches and techniques that allow me to do this effectively. For example, I may combine solutions-focused therapy (which is future-focused and goal-oriented) with narrative therapy (which separates the person from the problem, allowing the client to safely confront issues from the past) to create a tailored approach. My passion is for clients to experience change, healing and gain a deep understanding of themselves through the therapeutic process.

I seek to create a safe and non-judgemental space where the therapy takes place through a warm and genuine relationship, assisting the client in developing healthier and more sustainable self-support and external support systems. My work with clients includes working managing depression and anxiety, relationship breakdown, loss and bereavement, post-abortion grief, social anxiety, and identity change. I also work with couples, where work includes managing conflict, supporting communication, and over-coming barriers to sex and intimacy.

I am tutor and supervisor on the CPCAB Counselling Diploma for Heart and Mind, and recently co-founded the Network for Younger Counsellors and Psychotherapists. Prior to therapeutic work I was a lecturer for the Open University, teaching on their Mental Health and Community and Supporting Wellbeing in Children and Young People modules. I live in Tooting, SW London with my husband and two children, and can regularly be found strolling South London parks with reusable coffee cup in hand!
