About me

I am a qualified and experienced psychotherapist. I have over 10yrs experience working with individuals, couples, and families both in the NHS and privately. I also provide professional supervision to psychotherapists and trainee psychotherapists. I work with both children and adults.

I help people to explore themselves and the issues that bring them to therapy. It is through this process that change can be effected. The process can be short-term and target-focused, or longer-term and more exploratory. I tailor my approach to the individual. Where appropriate I may use specific and targeted interventions such as EMDR (a specific trauma therapy) or solution-focused approaches. At other times I take a more discursive approach.

There are no limits to what can be discussed in therapy. What is important is that the therapy offers an individual the possibility of looking at aspects of themselves and their lives that have hitherto been difficult to look at. In therapy the process of self-examination and change is made possible by the therapeutic relationship: the all-important relationship that develops between a therapist and a client.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have an MSc is Systemic Psychotherapy and am a registered member of UKCP and BACP. I have also trained in EMDR, Mindfulness, CBT and Solution-focused Therapy.

I specialize in complex trauma conditions such as PTSD and Dissociative Disorders. This work generally deals with past traumatic experiences. However, I also work with clients experiencing a wide range of other difficulties, including anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, work-related problems, sexual identity difficulties, and low self-esteem.

As a systemic psychotherapist I have worked with couples and families, as well as with individuals. I have worked in the NHS as part of CAMHS (Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service) and in a tier 4 in-patient psychiatric service. I now have a private practice and work with any issues that an individual is troubled by.
