I offer Core Process Psychotherapy, a mindfulness-based approach in therapy. Core Process Psychotherapy falls under the umbrella of humanistic and integrative approaches in psychotherapy.
My intention is to meet each person where they are in their life and incorporate a gentle yet powerful mindfulness-based therapy, which brings awareness to thoughts, feelings, and sensations, allowing change to happen in the present.
I wish to accompany your journey and support you being with any challenges that you might be experiencing. By truly allowing our experience to be, we have the possibility of moving forward and reconnecting with the greater sense of wellbeing. I work at a pace that is right for you, helping you to identify resources that can support you during your therapy and in your life.
I offer both counselling and long-term depth psychotherapy for adults on a weekly basis.

When choosing to go into psychotherapy, it is important to find a psychotherapist who is the right 'match' for you. I offer a free 40-minute initial meeting. This is an opportunity to help you to decide whether you feel at ease working with me and to discuss what is bringing you to therapy.
I attend regular professional supervision and partake in continual professional development courses to ensure that my practice is well supported.
I hold professional indemnity insurance and abide by both the ACPP and UKCP Code of Ethics.
All practicing Core Process Psychotherapists are required to have an ongoing contemplative or meditative practice. This helps to sustain awareness and develop a field of presence from which to listen to and hold clients at depth.
