About me and my therapy practice

Since qualifying as a Person Centred therapist in 2009 I have gained extensive experience working with children, young people and adults in therapy. I have worked in primary and secondary schools, GP practices and in other community settings. As well as running my private practice from home, I am a member of the independent advisory board of LimeCulture, a sexual assault training and development organisation. The board of seven is chaired by Sir Keir Starmer MP QC. I co chair the National Association for Trauma Specialists, affiliated to the University of Nottingham, where I received my MA in Trauma Studies in 2019. I'm also a doctoral researcher at the Open University. My research explores user-led mental health organisations. 

Practice description

My therapy practice is informed by all of these roles. I would describe myself as having a trauma informed perspective with particular understanding of sexual violence and abuse and user experience of mental health organisations.  


My first session

Once I receive your enquiry I will respond as soon as I can to let you know my availability. 

If you prefer, we can have a brief conversation on the telephone or via email before booking the first appointment to clarify or answer any questions you might have. 

I always offer an initial session. This first session I will look to get a better understanding of how I might help you. It's also an opportunity for you to decide if you feel I'm the right person to help you. There is no obligation to attend further sessions if you don't want to.

(All sessions are £45 for 50 minutes) .
