I am an experienced psychotherapist offering psychotherapy, clinical supervision and psychological consultancy.
In my work I combine a supportive, non-judgemental style with being appropriately challenging creating an environment that is accepting and empowering.
As a clinician, I draw on a set of complimentary theories in psychotherapy aiming to facilitate change and growth. My approach is relational, meaning I see the relationship between client and therapist as a vital aspect the therapeutic process and outcome. My work is collaborative and respectful of the client’s pace and inner resources and I work towards forming a relationship based on mutual trust in a safe and confidential environment.
I have many years of experience in the fields of therapy, group work and applied psychology and have been formally trained in both psychotherapy and counselling. I am experienced in working with a wide range of psychological and emotional issues.

I have trained and worked as a clinician in Australia, Germany and The Netherlands, as well as in the UK. I have previously worked in the charity sector and as part of a multi-disciplinary mental health team in the NHS.

I am multi-lingual and culturally aware and welcome clients from any cultural background; I have a personal and clinical interest in issues relating to cultural identity, a sense of belonging and feelings of being ‘uprooted’.
