About me and my therapy practice

UKCP reg Psychotherapist
MBACP (Accred)
Member of British Psychodrama Association

I work within a humanistic and integrative approach that acknowledges the unity of mind, body, emotions and spirit and the natural tendency of individuals towards growth and development. I place great emphasis on giving space for clients to bring issues at their own pace and explore what is nourishing and what is less satisfying in their lives. I aim to work within the therapeutic relationship and through exploring personal history, to support clients to achieve a greater awareness of how they relate and interact in the world and to foster a sense of personal responsibility and autonomy. I have over 25 years experience of personal development work, with both individuals and groups, including working within mental health projects, teaching in further education and as a freelance community artist. I like to offer a range of creative approaches in my work, drawing on my experience of working as an artist and community artist. I run regular weekend psychodrama therapy groups at Wellspring and a weekly therapy group. I also offer supervision. I work with adults, children and young people, couples, families and groups.
