I am a qualified therapist and registered member of the bacp, I work from the 'integrative model' which is an integrated approach to therapy, working from the philosophy that 'Humans have an innate thrust to grow, 'humans suffer from relational ruptures not pyschopathogy' and that we 'are all equally valuable'.
Working with these principles at the core of my practice I offer clients short and long term therapy. I am trained and qualified to work with common life problems, mental health difficulties/problems, relationship challenges, trauma and abuse.
I have flexible working hours day and early evenings are available.

What to expect?
I offer a pre- appointment phone conversation to answer any questions you may have regarding therapy.
The first session is an opportunity to establish if and how we are going to work together, I will offer some time after the session for you to consider whether you would like to work together.
If you feel I am the right therapist to work with you, we will arrange a sessions to work with your focus for therapy.
