About me

Hello, and welcome to my profile, thank you for coming. Clicking here means you have already made the first step towards the changes you want to make in your life, or towards the help you need and deserve. It's not easy and takes courage, so I applaud you.

I believe in psychotherapy because, for most people, life is hard! We struggle with how we feel about ourselves, with relationships with others, with managing difficult feelings and experiences in life. Speaking to a well qualified and experienced psychotherapist can make all the difference. I offer an empathic, warm and safe space in which you can explore what is troubling you.

My training is in Transactional Analysis which is an integrative approach. This means I can tailor the therapy for you as an individual. We might work at a cognitive behavioural level to work on unhelpful thoughts and behaviours you want to change, or delve deeply into your childhood relationships. It depends what is best for you and we decide on this together.

I believe that the most important thing for healing, growth and successful therapy is the relationship between us as therapist and client. It can be really daunting to meet a therapist (or any new person!) for the first time. My job is to put you at ease, to be real and human and meet you where you are in life. I look forward to meeting you and beginning our relationship.

I work with a wide range of issues but have particular expertise in helping people recover from depression, anxiety, childhood trauma and low self worth.

Email is the quickest way to contact me and I usually respond by the next day whenever possible. I’ll invite you to an initial assessment session where we can get to know each other and decide if we are a good fit to work together. I work both face to face and online.

I am registered to offer psychotherapy to members of AXA, Aviva, Vitality and Nuffield Health.
