About me

You will have your own, deeply personal reasons for seeking support. The process of therapy can help you to explore difficult feelings such as anxiety or depression; the impact of trauma, abuse or neglect; or difficulties in your current or past relationships. By creating a safe and challenging environment, and a strong therapeutic relationship, we will work together to make sense of your past and current experiences. This deeper awareness and understanding can help to confront and shift difficult feelings and relationship patterns. My way of working is therefore particularly suited to those wanting to change their relationship patterns and gain a deeper understanding of their emotions and identity.

I am an integrative therapist, which means I draw on different techniques and theory to influence the way I work. My way of working is very relational, which means I consider the relationship between the therapist and the client to be very important, and I am influenced by attachment theory, psychoanalytic theory and feminist psychology. I also draw on the techniques of DBT and CBT where suitable.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a qualified integrative psychotherapist, also currently completing a Doctorate in Counselling Psychology. I have practiced in private settings, the charity sector and the NHS. I am registered both as a graduate member of the British Psychological Society and as a registered member of the UK Council for Psychotherapy.
