About me

I'm an integrative therapist, which means I work differently with each client, drawing on different elements of theory and practice to create a way of working that is unique to the presenting needs. I have been trained in a broad spectrum of approaches and techniques that allow me to do this effectively. For example, I may combine solutions-focused therapy (which is future-focused and goal-oriented) with narrative therapy (which separates the person from the problem, allowing them to safely confront issues from the past) to create a tailored approach.  My passion is for clients to experience change, healing and gain a deep understanding of themselves through the therapeutic process. I seek to create a safe and non-judgemental space where the therapy takes place through a warm and genuine relationship, assisting the client in developing healthier and more sustainable self-support and external support systems. My work with clients includes working with new mothers experiencing identity change and postnatal depression, relationship breakdown, loss and bereavement, social anxiety, managing depression and anxiety, and sexual and domestic abuse. I have a special interest and passion in perinatal care and have recently developed more online work with single mothers who often struggle to access face-to-face sessions.

​Alongside therapeutic work I am a lecturer for the Open University in undergraduate modules of the Health and Social Care BA programme, including Mental Health in the Community and Supporting Wellbeing in Children and Young People. Most of my current therapeutic work is online, reflecting my own life of balancing work with Tilia, lecturing, and being a Mum. I live in Tooting, SW London with my husband and two children, and can regularly be found strolling South London parks with reusable coffee cup in hand!
