About me

Working face to face and online with adults, teenagers and older children, I offer daytime, evening and weekend appointments and charge £65-£85 per session.

I have vast experience in supporting clients with their relationship with food, body image and exercise especially. Many of us cope with difficult feelings and relationships by punishing our bodies, perhaps through controlling our food and exercise habits. Through my work, I have found that the power of a safe and healing space to talk,  and a supportive therapeutic alliance with a professional can be life changing. I encourage clients to nourish instead of punish their bodies and then address the root issue of the painful feelings.

Eating distress and low confidence are very common, especially in young people, and can escalate very quickly in to more serious eating disorder type behaviours. In my experience, early intervention is of the upmost importance, but a therapeutic intervention at any point will be very helpful. I have found that in a lot of cases the eating distress, controlling behaviours and rigidity are often somebody's solution to painful feelings and difficult relationships. I take a holistic and sensitive approach to support somebody in their battle. One of my most successful treatment plans involves allowing the mind and body a safe space to heal and rest, whilst looking deeper in to the root causes and beliefs beneath.

I have worked within schools and NHS settings for over 10 years, working with a wide range of clients with a variety of other issues also. These have been a mixture of short-term contracts of 6-8 sessions and longer term psychotherapy for up to 2 years. Presenting issues I have commonly worked with include self confidence, sleep disturbance, anxiety, depression, relationship challenges, bereavement and life adjustment amongst many others.

I work in an Integrative Person-Centered Holistic approach using a variety of Developmental, Somatic and Psychological techniques. My core training is in Transactional Analysis and I am especially interested in Attachment Theory. Both modalities have a huge impact on our our relationship with ourselves and everyone around us and are so important for positive mental health. I use these frameworks as they provide a very accessible structure and are easily understood. The techniques I use, can therefore be implemented easily and are very effective.

I really enjoy helping people through a warm relational approach and guide them to understand themselves better and then show them the tools that can help facilitate them to continue in a more positive way on their journey through life. I resonate highly with the effect of trauma on the nervous system and body and have recently began to implement breath work and emotional regulation tools to help calm the mind and body. I am a qualified yoga and meditation instructor as I find that powerful feelings and emotions are felt and stored within the body and need to be released in order to heal. Together with talking therapy, great and fast results are seen.

I am affiliated with AVIVA and Private Patients.

I look forward to hearing from you soon and wish you all the best in your journey.
