About me and my therapy practiceI am a UKCP registered Integrative Psychotherapist (2005) and HPC/BAAT registered Art Psychotherapist (1996) I am also a registered mental health nurse (2000).
I have worked in the health service in various settings with adults, children and young people since 2000 and have worked in private practice since 2012. I have also worked in the charitable sector (sexual violence service, a hospice, and with childline as a counsellor) and more recently in higher Education as a student counsellor.
I enjoy working with all age groups, including adults, older adults, children and young people from a variety of backgrounds and cultures.
In my therapeutic work I offer a safe, boundaried and respectful therapeutic relationship in which a person can start to explore, reflect upon and make sense of issues and difficulties in their lives which they may feel stuck with, so that ultimately they can make some meaning of these issues and move on in their lives. I work in a collaborative way with people seeing them as the experts on their issues and life.
I work with issues around Trauma and Abuse, loss, bereavement, self identity, anxiety, depression and suicidal thoughts, stress, emotional and behavioural difficulties and life adjustments, physical health difficulties.

My first session
Once a person contacts me by phone or email, I will offer a brief return phone call in confidence, so a person can ask further questions about therapy (Free of charge)
I will then offer a one off assessment appointment to gather information concerning a persons issue in some depth.
I will then agree with a person what we are to focus on, and the possible length of the therapy.
We will agree on a suitable time and day/ eve appointment on a regular weekly basis.
