About me

A new perspective on life, and on ourselves, often enables us to have the rich, and satisfying, existence that we all deserve.

I am an Integrative Psychotherapist. Simply put, Integrative Therapists are unique, in that we are trained to a high standard in more than one therapeutic approach.

The integrative approach recognises that many of the problems, that affect our lives, and are difficult to change, can be traced back to the unconscious part of the mind. I am trained to listen carefully, and at a deeper level, to help you understand your unconscious patterns of relating. This will help you to gain clarity, and resolve those thoughts and feelings that are holding you back.

Treatment will always be tailored to you and your specific needs, hopes and goals. Therapy with me will often take a more active, constructive approach, rather than a non-directive, listening only approach.

​I am an accredited member with the BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy) . I am also a member of COSRT (College of Sex and Relationship Therapists Both organisations place an emphasis on ethics, including confidentiality.
