About me

As a psychotherapist with 15 years experience I offer both therapy and supervision. Through weekly therapy I provide a caring and creative space in which to find a way through periods of anxiety, depression, loss or uncertainty. Together we will develop the psychological insight and emotional resources needed to make good decisions, build nourishing relationships, and live authentically, so that you feel whole and true to yourself.

I believe that our suffering has meaning, that we feel disturbed and distressed because essential aspects of ourselves are calling to be healed or expressed. So the 'crack' in our lives which brings us into therapy is also a doorway.

I have particular interest and experience in the following areas:
* working with imagination and creative processes to recover self and heal wounding
* restoring identity, purpose and direction
* overcoming difficulties with intimacy and relationship
* navigating life transitions such as motherhood, separation, mid-life
* recovery from childhood trauma or wounding
* getting to the root of chronic anxiety or depression

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a Master Degree (MA) in Psychotherapy from Middlesex University and the Institute of Psychosynthesis and a Post-Graduate Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling from the Institute of Psychosynthesis.

I also hold a Certificate in 'Supervision with Soul' (supervision within a psychosynthesis context) from Re.Vision.

I have also studied and have an interest in Jungian psychology and 'Somatic Experiencing' Trauma Therapy

I have published work on the subject of the transition to motherhood and post-natal disturbance.

My professional experience has also included managing, mentoring and advising people in a range of organisations on issues of vocation, purpose and identity.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
