About me

I am a self-employed integrative psychotherapist working with adults age 18+ . I have many years experience of delivering short and longer term therapy to clients in diverse settings . These include the following:

  • primary care practitioner - NHS IAPT provider service
  • weight management programme
  • older clients
  • locum student counsellor - Higher Education
  • young adults with mental illness - BME community based organisation
  • private practice
  • Nottingham Counselling Service

In private practice my primary objective is to offer clients with challenging, debilitating or life-enduring issues an opportunity to explore their experiences “in depth”, and to facilitate greater understanding and awareness of developmental and relational processes which combine to make us who we are. This is an open-ended contract.

You may not know what it is you want to discuss or talk about in therapy so I invite you to contact me for an initial consultation.

We will consider together what has brought you to seek therapy at this time and make an assessment as to whether or not I am the right therapist for you.

Should we agree to work together we will allow the work to unfold and pay attention to issues as they present themselves over the course of the therapy.

In times of uncertainty and change experience a sense of 'safety', therapeutic 'holding' and 'containment' within the boundaries of psychological therapy.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am an accredited integrative psychotherapist, registered with the UKCP.

I completed my professional training and Masters Degree at the Sherwood Psychotherapy Institute (SPTI) in Nottingham and University of Birmingham in 2011.

I have completed the training element of the Diploma in Supervision with the Sherwood Psychotherapy Institute.

Recent continuing professional development courses have been in Attachment, Trauma and Neuroscience; Working with Complex Trauma and Focusing. I am particularly interested in working with shame in the consulting room and supporting clients with trauma presentation.

My clinical experience in the NHS has developed a passion for working with older clients who present with issues around transition and loss eg redundancy, retirement, physical health, ageing, death. Also around issues of change or impairment brought about by medical or social conditions.

If you are an older client seeking psychological help I am interested in hearing from you.
