About me

I am an experienced psychotherapist working in both a busy general hospital and in private practice. As a Gestalt therapist I can help you to explore the different aspects of your life and how they relate to one another. Some people have a clear idea about what their difficulties are whilst others are unsure about why they are feeling the way they do. I see my role as one of helping the individual gain more awareness of who they are and how they relate to the world and others around them.

As an NHS psychotherapist I have a special interest in the way illness or accidents can affect people's lives. This often leads to difficulties with depression and anxiety. Like many therapists I work in a non-judgmental way and view therapy as a joint endeavour to help people live their lives more fully.

I have seen people from many walks of life with a wide range of difficulties, however, I am specialised in working with issues related to: cancer, (particularly breast cancer), MS, bereavement and loss, pregnancy and infertility, trauma and post traumatic stress, chronic pain, disability and abuse.

I originally trained as a contemporary dancer and then a dance movement therapist. I am interested in creativity plus how experience is manifested and expressed through our bodies.

The Initial Meeting
This is a chance for you to meet with me, and for me to hear about what is happening for you and why you are seeking therapy. It is a chance for us to see whether I am the right therapist for you, and for you to get a feel for how I work. You can ask questions and we will think about whether long term or short term therapy is suitable.

Coming to see me
Sessions are usually weekly for 50 minutes. I am currently available in the day on Mondays and Thursdays. I have some limited evening sessions.
