About me and my therapy practice

Life can present us with challenges which can make it difficult to know which way to turn. I am here to support anyone who finds themselves in this situation.

I am a UKCP registered psychotherapist with several year’s experience working with clients on both a short- and long-term basis.

My core training has been in psychodynamic psychotherapy; combined with this I have a certificate from Tavistock Relationships and I have been working with those dealing with grief in my work with Cruse Bereavement Care. I have an interest in the work of C G Jung and have a foundation certificate in his work. I am currently doing a more extensive trauma training at the Tavistock & Portman.



Practice description

My strength is my ability to build relationships with my clients in which they feel supported and understood; where clients feel 'stuck' on some level, I can work with them where they are and able to draw on my years of experience to support them in their journey of change, be it professionally or personally.

I work with those who have a range of psychological and emotional difficulties, including anxiety, depression, difficulties in relationships, lack of self-confidence, grief and loss, trauma and addiction recovery.

I am a firm believer in the mind-body link and how psychological or emotional difficulties may cause physical symptoms in the body; I am also a 500 hr accredited yoga teacher and work with those who may have experienced physical manifestations of psychological issues.  

My first session

The first session is more of a consultation or assessment which involves being asked more questions about family history and currently life circumstances and any presenting issues.
