About me and my therapy practice
I am a warm, sensitive, empathic and gently challenging Integrative Counsellor. I work with adults, children and and adolescents. I offer parent coaching and parent-child therapy.
I am an adult Integrative Body Psychotherapist and a Child and Adolescent Psychotherapeutic Counsellor. I have British Psychological Society approved Practitioner Skills certificates for eating disorders. I have completed DDP (Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy - attachment focussed family therapy) training Levels 1 & 2. I am EMDR trained to Level 2.
I have a special interest in complex trauma and dissociation, the body-mind relationship, and eating disorders, including over-eating and bingeing.
I am qualified and experienced to work with a wide range of issues, including amongst many: identity/gender/sexuality including transgender, health issues, autistic spectrum disorders, suicidal ideation and attempts, self harming, anger, depression and anxiety.
As an integrative therapist, I tailor the therapy to you as an individual. I commit to working at your own pace and in a way that suits you. Open, ongoing feedback on how you are finding the therapy is an important part of the process. I am interested in bringing creativity, body awareness, relaxation training and mindfulness into talk therapy - this is optional and always your choice.
My private practice is based at my peaceful home in Tadley, within easy reach of Basingstoke, Reading, Newbury, Winchester and surrounding areas of Hampshire and Berkshire.
To help you decide if I am the right person for you, I offer a free half hour phone consultation. This is a no obligation opportunity to get a sense of who I am and how I work. Following this you can book a first counselling session.
