About me and my therapy practice

I am a Relational, Humanistic & Integrative psychotherapist using Transactional Analysis Psychotherapy as my primary therapeutic model, which I complement with Existential Psychotherapy, Gestalt Psychotherapy, Mindfulness, and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT). 

I am a Coaching Psychologist, accredited with the European Mentoring & Coaching Council (EMCC) at the Senior Practitioner level, offering a range of services for personal and business development. I also offer 1-to-1 and group supervision to coaches. 

Practice description

I specialise in supporting clients with complex trauma and childhood issues, providing a safe, brave, and supportive environment to explore difficult and challenging themes.

I work with adults on an individual basis as well as couples. In addition to my core psychotherapy training, I hold an Advanced Certificate in Couples Therapy and work with a range of issues including relationship breakdowns, infidelity, dealing with divorce, communication problems, and sexual issues.

Although I work primarily with adults, I offer a range of therapy services for young people aged 11 - 17 years old. I hold a Certificate in Therapeutic Work with Children & Young People.

I am also trained in Brainspotting: a powerful, focused treatment method that identifies, processes and releases core neurophysiological sources of emotional or body pain, trauma, dissociation and a variety of challenging symptoms.

I work with a Trauma-Informed approach, co-creating and promoting personal empowerment and spontaneity of expression.

As well as clinical work, I offer a range of coaching services for personal and professional development. I use many of my psychotherapeutic skills to dive into deep discovery for growth. 

Empathetic in nature, with excellent communication skills, my personal and professional ethics are based on attunement, independence, autonomy, and inclusion.

​I am committed to working with people whose native language is not English. My practice is disability friendly, as well as Neurodivergent and LGBTQ+ inclusive.
