About me

"It is a Joy to be Hidden, and a Disaster not to be Found" D.W Winnicott.

Welcome to my page.

I am an experienced Psychotherapist holding a Masters (MSc) degree in Integrative Psychotherapy. I am also a clinical supervisor and I am registered with the United Kingdom Council of Psychotherapy (UKCP). I see both individuals and couples.

I understand that lifes difficulties and challenges can feel overwhelming, life unsatisfying. People enter into psychotherapy for a number of reasons; low self-esteem, depression, anxiety, panic attacks, phobias, bereavement, loss, abuse, anger, childhood trauma, relational problems, loneliness and isolation. Not everyone knows what is bothering them, maybe you feel confused & unhappy without knowing why. Maybe you are struggling to make sense of your experiences or who you are, seeking help through psychotherapy can help to understand & resolve these feelings.

I am committed to offering therapy in a safe, confidential environment with no judgement. I offer a warm, relational presence where we can work together to promote life enhancement, with lasting solutions to what you face.

What is Integrative Psychotherapy?

Integrative psychotherapy means I work to enable the experience of life and others in the fullest way possible. Not believing in a one size fits all approach, but in the importance of the individual you, your needs and your lived experience. I draw on my varied experience and blend of theories for your individualised consideration.

I integrate from a Relational, Developmental stance, believing relationships both current and historical play a core role in our well being, what may be troubling you now may be connected right back to your earliest experiences and the meaning they hold for you. 

I integrate object relations, psychoanalytic self-psychology and aspects of humanistic psychology, along with somatic experiencing, the integrating of body awareness. The mind and body must be connected for full health, the healing of old wounds, and connection to both self and others. Distressing physical symptoms may be related to trauma held in the body, or repressed, avoided and denied emotions. 

I have a specialist interest in long standing, complex issues.

Couples Therapy 

As well as completing a Masters (MSc) degree I have also had the privilege of training alongside experts in the field of couples therapy. I integrate all of this knowledge including cutting edge research around neuroscience, development and attachment theory, all of which dictate how we can relate to one another. I use this to guide you to create and develop the supportive and close relationship you both want and need. I believe with your desire to, and the right guidance you can re build your relationship.

Issues which we can resolve together include;

Poor communication, infidelity, repetitive arguments, sexual issues, lack of intimacy, loss of emotional connection, conflict and disagreements, family issues, dealing with loss and illness. These are just some examples, this list is not exhaustive.

Couples may also access therapy to consider if their relationship is to continue, and, if not how to uncouple in a conscious, healthy way. Painful, destructive endings are often taken forward within both individuals and impact future wellbeing and relationships.

If you have any questions or would like to have an initial chat please do get in touch. I offer an initial phone call which is given freely and would last around 15 minutes, together we can see if Psychotherapy may be suitable for you.

I am based near Spilsby, Lincolnshire, within easy access of Boston, Louth, Horncastle and Skegness, Lincoln and surrounding areas.
