About me and my therapy practice

This is great.  Your first step towards exploring what’s been going for you, life challenges, old and new, adult and childhood experiences. I am here to support your exploration, with kindness and curiosity.  I have 14 years of mental health experience, and nearly 50 years of life experience.  I am open, nonjudgmental, and will enable you to feel safe and understood as we navigate this new part of your journey.  Looking forward to meeting you.  

Practice description

I am an integrative psychotherapist, with training in person centred counselling and 10 years of CBT practice, within IAPT NHS, services and now in my own private practice.  I also have extensive training  in Mindfulness and DBT.  I have recently attended a 4 day training with the Oxford Cognitive Training Centre updating my knowledge and interventions for OCD.
