About me and my therapy practice

Life can be difficult and painful and there are many reasons why you might be looking for support. I will listen deeply and compassionately, holding a confidential space for you to explore your feelings and thoughts on any issues you bring. We are complex and unique beings and no one size fits all. As an integrative therapist I work organically drawing on a diversity of fields to suit your needs.

Practice description

I'm a qualified integrative counsellor and psychotherapist. My core training is in Other Centred Therapy (OCT) which combines Western Psychotherapy and Buddhist psychology. I also have experience and qualifications in psychodynamic counselling, bereavement support and ecotherapy. I adhere to the ethical framework of the BACP and attend regular clinical supervision, ongoing professional development as well as my own therapy to ensure a high standard of working.

I have had the privilege of working with clients who have experienced a range of issues, such as loss, anxiety, depression, substance abuse, relationship difficulties, low self-esteem or trauma and I offer short and long-term therapy. 

Through my own therapy I have come to passionately believe in the significant role the therapeutic relationship can play in transforming lives. I have a keen awareness of how power structures shape our lives, including our inner worlds. Beyond the social world we are also part of the wider web of life. I am greatly inspired by the healing power of nature and its relevance to the therapeutic process and I also offer ecotherapy and outdoor walking and talking sessions.

My first session

The first session is a an opportunity for you to find out if you would like to work with me. We will explore what brings you to therapy at this time.  We will talk through how therapy works in practice. You will have the chance to find out how it feels being with me and whether you feel comfortable talking to me.
