About me and my therapy practice

I work as a Child, Adolescent, Parent and Adult Psychotherapist and Counsellor. I am fully registered member of BACP and UKCP. For the last few years I worked as a Psychotherapist for Local Authority alongside my busy private practice. I am deeply aware that each child and adult brings to therapy a story that is unique to them. As a result, I use an 'integrative' approach. This means that I draw on many different theories to tailor a bespoke therapy service to meet each person’s specific needs. I integrate a variety of different modalities such as psychodynamic, humanistic, systemic and cognitive behaviour therapy. I often use creative mediums such as arts, sandtray and play as they can facilitate communication of emotions that are often unconscious or difficult to express verbally, especially in the work with children and adolescents. These ideas are underpinned by my knowledge of the latest neurobiological research whilst also taking into consideration my client’s age, culture, and reasons for referral.
