At some time or other we all face difficult challenges. They may be the stuff of everyday life: family, money, sex, work. They may be more out of the ordinary: trauma, bereavement, addiction, betrayal, abuse. I believe that the therapeutic process enables you to face life’s challenges; to find a satisfying way to manage, and to live, a more authentic and rewarding life.
I worked as a psychotherapist in the NHS for 4 years and have practised privately for over 6 years. I am a humanistic psychotherapist, which means that I work mainly in the present, with reference to the past and how that may have shaped you. I believe that you have the potential to identify, explore and change established patterns that no longer serve you. I work to build a meaningful and trusting relationship with my clients in a safe and confidential space. My approach is warm, empathic and challenging (when necessary!).
I work with a wide range of issues, and have a special interest in addiction, trauma, depression and anger. I also work with clients facing relationship issues, including sex, trust, family and parenting.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a degree in Humanities from London University. I started my professional life in market research and the voluntary sector, and developed a keen interest in working with people. I commenced my training as a psychotherapist at Regents University in 2002, and completed my training at Spectrum Therapy.
