About me

My approach is humanistic and, as an integrative psychotherapist, I draw on ideas from several schools of thought, in particular from gestalt , existential psychotherapy and relational psychoanalysis/psychodynamics. These different perspectives give me a holistic approach, paying attention to the different aspects of experience: physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. I work in a relational and flexible way, tailored to the personality and changing needs of each individual.

I offer a space where you will be listened to, without judgment, and encouraged to self-reflect and explore your experiences in a compassionate, not self-critical, way. This helps you develop deeper self understanding, emotional resilience and to uncover your best path ahead. I believe self awareness is key to psychological health and well being; my approach is also influenced by mindfulness meditation techniques.

I'm experienced in working with individuals who bring a wide range of issues, some of which are:

  • Bereavements & grief
  • Anxiety
  • Generalised anxiety disorder
  • Panic attacks
  • Relationship issues
  • Depression
  • Loss
  • Divorce & separation
  • Family difficulties (e.g. family relationship problems)
  • Low self-esteem
  • Lack of confidence
  • Feelings of emptiness and isolation
  • Unresolved issues from the past (e.g. child abuse or neglect)
  • Childhood and adult trauma
  • Pain and illness.
  • Life transitions (ageing, retirement, redundancy, loss, illness)
  • Sexuality
  • Work related issues
  • Identity issues
  • student concerns ( e.g. exam stress, adapting to university life)

I'm particularly skilled and experienced in working with issues related to loss and life transitions (e.g. bereavements, ageing, long term illness, divorce/separations, adapting to student life, retirement).
I've had additional training in bereavement counselling and have extensive experience in this field; this includes working with traumatic bereavements such as a death by suicide, accident, death of a child.

For further information about me and how I work please have a look round my website (link above).

Do contact me by email or phone if you have any queries or to arrange an initial session. I may be with a client if you phone so please leave a voicemail and I will call you back as soon as I can. I aim to answer all enquiries within 24 hours (Monday-Friday).
