About me

I have worked in the field of psychological therapies since 2001 establishing a private practice in 2005  whilst working for mental health organisations.

I am a qualified integrative psychotherapist and certificated clinical supervisor currently working towards my diploma in supervision.

I offer therapy for individuals 18+ requiring short or long term interventions and I am based in the Norton area.

I also have experience in providing both individual and group clinical supervision.

My specialist areas include mental health and emotional well-being, victim support, anger management, bereavement as well as working within primary care and (EAP) workplace services providing therapy to staff in NHS, Council, Police and Schools.

My approach is primarily person-centred and gestalt psychotherapy whilst incorporating cognitive behavioural therapy, transactional analysis and brief/solution focused therapy. An approach will be adapted towards your needs and your presenting issues.

I believe and have the faith in that wherever we are in life there is always a way forward for us. Sometimes we need just a little support and a guiding hand.

'Happiness can be found even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light'.

Further information

Your first session will be an assessment so that we can get to know each other and discuss what your concerns and needs are from therapy. This will give you an opportunity to decide whether or not to continue.

If you do not see your concern on this list then still do give me a call and I will be happy to discuss it with you. If I am unable to work with a particular issue or a particular client group, then I may be able to suggest someone who can.
