About me and my therapy practice

I offer relational therapy and coaching because I believe that relationships are really important. We encounter lots of different relationships over the course of our lives: friends, siblings, parents, bosses, co-workers…and then there’s the relationship we have with ourselves. 

In my experience, people come to counselling and coaching to improve their relationships, which in turn improves their quality of life.

As an experienced coach, I can help you with both tactical and strategic career goals: from preparing for an interview or presentation, to planning for promotion or career transition.  

During my time with Google, I coached and mentored both startups and individuals.  In particular, my focus was on helping female founders.

Following my therapeutic Diploma, I trained and worked with Rape Crisis where I worked with survivors of both sexual and domestic abuse. Since leaving Rape Crisis, I have undertaken additional training in a number of trauma informed approaches such as Internal Family Systems Therapy, and EMDR. 

Practice description

I offer long term psychotherapy, as well as short term counselling.  As well as my focus on relationships, my approach is trauma informed.

We all experience trauma in our lives even if we don't think of it as 'trauma'. Any adverse experience that stays with us and brings a disturbance from our past into our present can be distressing. Often we can feel 'stuck' in our patterns of thinking and responding. This can affect our relationships, as well as our general sense of well being. 

Sometimes, we think we have processed a traumatic experience, only to feel 'triggered' in certain situations.  The symptoms of these triggers are often experienced in our bodies and can affect our physical well being. 

I am a qualified EMDR practitioner, and have experience of working with a number of trauma informed approaches. Through a combination of talking therapies and EMDR, I can help you make sense of your personal experience of trauma. 

My coaching approach is largely strengths based, however I am a firm believer in working flexibly and adaptively with my clients. What’s important is that we focus together on what you want out of your business relationships, and how to empower you to execute on these goals. 

I work integratively with all of my clients and can often use what are traditionally considered psychotherapy techniques - such as EMDR - in my coaching practice.  Though most of the research about EMDR is around treating trauma, my experience is that it is equally effective in coaching.  Performance anxiety, interview preparation and public speaking are all addressable, often in a single session.

My first session

I offer free initial consultations via Zoom.  These usually last between 15 and 30 minutes.  After this, if we decide to work together, our first session will be online.

In our first session, we will review the counselling/coaching contract and explore and agree therapy/coaching goals and outcomes.  

We can agree a fixed or open timescale for our work, as well as the frequency of our sessions.
