About me

I am a psychotherapist and clinical supervisor with over twenty years of experience.

 What might be the reason for considering psychotherapy? It may be the recognition that we live in the present yet continue to be effected by the past and often uncertain or even fearful of the future. Although we cannot change the past we can begin to change our relationship with it. Equally we do not know what the future might hold but we can begin to rehearse in the present for the challenges we may anticipate when the future arrives. However, it is often our present situation that brings us to therapy. This can be the recognition that old coping strategies are not working. We may feel overwhelmed by events and difficult emotions, and that we need to find a new way of being in the world and moving forward. It may be difficulties in our relationships, past and present, feelings of isolation and loneliness, and a desire to connect in a more grounded way with those around us and with ourselves. Psychotherapy may be an opportunity to do just that.

I have worked extensively with both individuals and groups and have become particularly interested in how we take what we learn in psychotherapy to develop a new way of living and interacting with the world. I use creative and action-based methods to explore personal and interpersonal dynamics in a safe and supportive way with a view to developing new life skills.

Training, qualifications & experience

I trained as a psychodrama psychotherapist with the Oxford School of Psychodrama in the late 1990's qualifying in 2002. Since then I have worked extensively as a psychotherapist in a therapeutic community and in private practice addressing issues of; trauma; anger; aggression; substance misuse; self-esteem; attachment styles; personal growth and relationships.

I am registered with the British Psychodrama Association (BPA) and am also a UKCP registered psychotherapist.

Additional information

I offer a sliding scale for clients depending on their ability to pay.  In the current economic climate, it can be difficult to prioritise ones own mental health and well being.  Consequently I am always willing to negotiate affordability to allow a perspective client to address the issues they need to in therapy.
