About me

I am a fully qualified and experienced dramatherapist, working with individuals, couples, families and children. I have worked with many people struggling with anxiety, relationship issues and family issues. My work is informed by Psychoanalysis, Attachment Theory & Continental Philosophy.

Anxiety and relationship issues are often predicated on fear, left unexamined, they can lead to a rigid defence of our 'territory', resulting in unhelpful and compulsive patterns of repetition. In my work, I offer a safe space to explore and express such difficulties and eventually to take a creative step towards the different!

We begin with discussion & reflection, gently exploring what brings you to therapy. Eventually, more spontaneous, embodied and 'dramatic' responses are invited in, as a means of unlocking and expressing what may be behind our conscious worries, words and feelings. It can be a very liberating experience. I take my lead from you, we go at your pace. What unfolds is an enriching, creative and philosophical experience, in which we gain a different perspective on ourselves, our lives and how we are with others.

My work has been informed by Jungian Psychology, Existential Philosophy & Post-Modern writings. Whether you attend as a individual, a couple or a family - sessions are often about making new connections and finding previously unseen pathways within ourselves.

In the first instance send an email or telephone me to discuss your needs in confidence.
