About me and my therapy practice

I am a qualified integrative psychotherapist and counsellor. This means that I have knowledge of a number of different approaches to therapy, and use these to meet the individual needs of my clients. In particular, I draw on contemporary psychoanalysis, attachment theory and theories of the body in psychotherapy. My training and qualification were at The Minster Centre, a leading institute for integrative psychotherapy. I have a master's degree in integrative psychotherapy and counselling and a diploma in integrative counselling.

Overall my interest is in helping people to deeply know and understand themselves, and in turn to lead the lives they want. I support my clients in working through life’s challenges, and have particular experience in helping with loss, loneliness and difficulty in relationship. I firmly believe that therapy should be an experience of kindness and acceptance, and these principles are at the heart of my work.

Before becoming a psychotherapist I worked for a number of years for a large company. I have a good understanding of the stresses and strains of corporate life and of work within other large organisations, and where relevant can use this to help my clients.
