About me

Choosing a therapist

Finding the right person to support you is really important and can make all the difference. Research has repeatedly demonstrated that it is the relationship with your therapist that is the foundation for lasting impact. Please read through the information about me to see if I sound like the person that can help you.

What I offer

I want to create a space for you where everything is welcome and any difficulty can be shared. I have a relaxed and creative approach and can offer a strong and grounded therapeutic alliance to support and encourage your own self-inquiry. I bring patience and an open hearted curiosity to my work and am used to working with trauma and deep seated thinking patterns.

By providing a safe, non-judgemental and empathic environment, a psychotherapeutic relationship can allow our shamed, disconnected, or wounded parts to be met and accepted, and even find their own voice. I offer heartful psychotherapy for both short and long term work. I can provide safe and secure stabilisation around current personal difficulty, but also offer depth work exploring  the spiritual search for deeper meaning and fulfilment.

Over the last twenty years I have worked in a wide range of roles that have all focused on supporting clients to effect personal change. I am experienced in working with issues such as anxiety, shock, depression, unresolved trauma, panic attacks, addiction, anger problems, sexual abuse, relationship issues, domestic violence and more. I have also supported clients to explore finding meaning in life, dealing with loneliness and how to find peace and balance.

I offer an integrative, psychodynamic oriented psychotherapy. It includes aspects of body psychotherapy and transpersonal psychology and is underpinned by western developmental theories, as well as Buddhist psychology and awareness practices. Please look at my website for more information.

What to expect

I always offer a free first session, so that we can meet and discuss what you want from therapy and whether I am the right therapist for you. If we then continue to work together, we will agree the fee, the time and any other practicalities. It is often helpful to have a review after about six sessions to look at how you are feeling and whether the sessions are meeting your needs.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a Masters Degree in Core Process Psychotherapeutic Practice, following six years of professional training and clinical practice with the Karuna Institute (Middlesex University). I am now a candidate in training,working towards full accreditation with the UK Council of Psychotherapists. I have full Professional Liability insurance.

As a Registered Member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP), I abide by their ethical framework, guidlelines for good practice and code of confidentiality.

I have twenty years of experience of working with people to effect personal change in a wide variety of settings.
