About me and my therapy practice
I have a unique combination of training in psychotherapy, relationship therapy, nutrition and health coaching. My specialist interest is in using physiology to enhance emotional health.
I work with clients helps to maximise their wellbeing through psychotherapy, often combined with evidence-based health coaching. I have recently trained in breathwork coaching for anxiety & depression. This is a scientific physiological intervention to regulate stress response and reduce anxiety or to boost mood and reduce depression.
I have over 15 years’ experience as a psychotherapist and co-direct Reading's largest centre for psychotherapy & counselling. I believe in the power of self-understanding, self-exploration and effective communication as tools for developing ourselves. Therapy can assist in the development of all of these.
I frequently work with clients with anxiety, depression, mental health concerns, history of / symptoms of eating disorders, sports performance concerns, health anxiety or recurring health problems and those wishing to optimise their emotional wellbeing.
