About me

I am an Integrative Psychotherapist and Psychotherapeutic Counsellor offering help for individuals and couples. I work in Carlisle and Penrith at present and have daytime and evening appointments available. My work is always tailored to personal need so there are no restraints on the number of sessions you may have. We will agree together how many sessions you require based on your needs and expectations, and this will be reviewed regularly. Individual work is usually weekly or fortnightly.

For couples, my approach is more structured to reflect the needs of the work. I offer courses of around 8 sessions which may be spread over a number of months to allow you to practise using your new knowledge about how to relate to each other.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have Diplomas in Integrative Psychotherapy and Psychotherapeutic Counselling and I am a member of the Humanistic and Integrative College of the UK Council for Psychotherapy.

I work integrating a variety of treatment styles in order to tailor my treatment to the individual. This may include psychoanalytical, psychodynamic, CBT, bodywork, Gestalt, and relational/ developmental approaches. I work in a person centred way so that together we can explore your difficulties both in the here and now , and the life story that may lie behind them.

I  work with people experiencing grief, depression and anxiety, suicidal thoughts, self harm, gender dysphoria, sexual violence, domestic abuse, personality disturbance, caring responsibilities, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, eating disorders, panic attacks, workplace conflict, OCD and relationship/sexual difficulty.
