About me

I am a Jungian Analytical Psychotherapist. Previously, I trained as a Health Psychologist and Psychodynamic Counsellor. The aim of my work with a patient is to collaboratively make sense of their life with the focus on increasing understanding and meaning. This suits people who wish to increase their understanding of their inner world, and through that, to live more fully. This approach focuses more on the whole person rather than trying to fix a particular problem in isolation.

Qualifications: BA(hons) Psychology and Philosophy, PhD Psychology, Postgraduate Certificate in learning and teaching in higher education, Postgraduate Diploma in Psychodynamic Counselling. I am a Jungian Analytical Psychotherapist, trained with the West Midlands Institute of Psychotherapy (WMIP), accredited by the British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC)
