About me


Thank you for reading my profile, hopefully you will get a sense of me, the way I work and whether this would suit you.
If you would prefer please ring me for a chat or e-mail me if you have any questions or just want to talk something through initially.

I am a BACP reg. counsellor and a U.K.C.P reg. psychotherapist who works in private practice from a comfortable room in the South of Birmingham. My approach is integrative, incorporating object relations, psychoanalytic, Gestalt and Transactional Analysis. I would describe myself as relational- that is open, supportive, caring and with an emphasis on the relationships between myself and the client. I believe in interactive therapy that helps you move forward positively, making the changes you want to make. Commonly, I have a lot of experience in helping clients to break negative patterns of behaviour, to have better relationships and to feel less anxious and depressed. Sometimes, clients come to see me feeling generally unfulfilled with life and require a more directive stance to help discover what they need in life and how to get it. My approach aims to get to the heart of the problem working towards long term change that is meaningful, rather than skimming the surface. I tend to work longer term and in depth with my clients which as time goes by can involve some challenging work. Helping my clients to feel safe from the outset is very important to me, as coming to therapy at the beginning can sometimes be scary- I will try my best to make you feel at ease and help you live life more fully, freely and more fullfillingly, whatever that may be.

I have six and half years of formal training and have over 5,000 client hours worth of experience with adults, couples, families and children.
