About me and my therapy practice

I am a humanistic, integrative practitioner with over twenty five years post qualifying experience thirteen of which  I gained working in primary care in the NHS. Whilst my values and approach are underpinned by person centred therapy, I have integrated skills from a wide range of therapies, to enable me to work holistically. I have a special interest in Narrative therapy; please see my website for more information. I also specialise in trauma work, I am happy to work short or long term.

Practice description

From June 21st if sanctions lift I will be working face to face from a room in  Enso Healing Rooms;  190 Cheltenham road BS6 5RB . Enso has a martial art shop at the front and therapy rooms to the back. There is on street parking on meters, check signage for details.

My first session
