About me

I offer creative and embodied psychotherapy, both online and in-person, with a focus on growing my clients' sense of connection, self-compassion, creativity, and capacity to regulate the nervous system. I create a safe, holding space for delving deeper into the areas of your life that you wish to grow, explore or change.

You may have something specific you want to address, or a general sense of feeling low, stuck, dissatisfied or anxious. Either way, engaging in a therapeutic process can support you to find a way through your experience, understand yourself better, and make changes towards more sustained wellbeing. 

Having creative and embodied tools at our disposal - alongside talking - means that we can approach feelings, experiences and issues through a range of different lenses. Images, story, movement, music, role-work, and body and breath work open up a whole world of possibilities within the therapeutic process.

I also offer clinical supervision to practising therapists, mental health practitioners and those working in the criminal justice system and in humanitarian relief.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a qualified dramatherapist (since 2014) and creative clinical supervisor (since 2020), and am currently completing my training in Integrative Embodied Psychotherapy. 

I specialise in working with adults who have experienced trauma, or who identify with experiencing PTSD, anxiety and stress, hearing voices, depression or feeling in some way "held back" by something in their lives. 

Alongside my private practice, I have 13 years of experience of working creatively and therapeutically in the public and third sectors, in the fields of mental health, homelessness, alternative education, humanitarian relief and the criminal justice system.

Within my practice, I draw on my training in Tai Chi, embodied psychotherapy, compassion-focused meditation, music-making, storytelling, therapeutic clowning and issue-based theatre to find the tools best suited to each client's needs.
