Who am I?
I am a registered HCPC, (Health Care Professionals Council), Integrative Arts Psychotherapist, which means that I am trained in using arts therapies alongside talking therapy. Clients find it very useful to creatively explore issues and feelings using a wide range of mediums to help describe and transform their life situations. Using the imagination, metaphor and non-verbal expression can help to accelerate the healing process. You do not need to be artistically talented to work in this way.
I am also a UKCP, (United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapists), Clinical Psychotherapist. My approach draws on a wide range of theoretical techniques which are used to match the needs of each individual client.
I offer integrative therapeutic sessions which can include talking therapy, arts psychotherapy, mindfulness-based therapy and polyvagal theory approaches. Please visit my new website for more detailed information.
How can I help you?
I can help you with a variety of issues including anxiety disorders, panic attacks, bereavement and loss, depression, low self-esteem and low self-confidence, relationship problems, addiction and trauma.
Where does the therapy take place?
My consulting studio near to Arundel is a safe, contained and confidential space that enables you to express whatever you need to. I also offer sessions via Zoom and telephone, as well as outdoors during the warmer months.
What happens during the initial consultation?
During the initial consultation we will take the time to explore your reasons for therapy, the frequency and duration, fees, and get a feel for how we might work together.

Registration means that a health professional meets national standards for their professional training, performance and conduct.
