About me

I recognise that taking the first steps to make contact with a potential therapist can be a little daunting and so I work hard to be both professional and approachable in my style of working. I am a psychotherapist who is passionate about developing respectful working relationships with the people I see in my practice, providing a safe space to talk, think and understand.

I will do my best to provide you with the opportunity to develop a trusting, authentic and honest relationship with me as your psychological therapist. In my experience, therapy is most effective when there is a good working relationship between client and therapist, enabling us to work together to better understand your difficulties.

It is really important to me that my work with clients is founded upon the values of compassion, authenticity, curiosity and kindness. I enjoy meeting individuals who are invested in their therapy as I work alongside them and support them to make the changes they desire while honouring their autonomy and independence in living a life that is of value and has meaning for them.

In addition to providing face to face therapy, I also offer therapy via web based video calls to enable those unable to attend appointments in person the flexibility of working with me remotely. If you would like to know more, please take a look at my website and if you are interested in the possibility of working with me, I would be very pleased to hear from you.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have been working in mental health services for over 9 years and so I am experienced in working with people with a range of difficulties such as such as depression, anxiety, stress, physical health problems, relationship difficulties, life limiting illnesses and bereavement.

I am registered with and accredited by United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP). I have attained the following qualifications:

  • Practitioner Diploma in Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT)
  • Post Graduate Clinical Diploma in Integrative Psychotherapy
  • Post Graduate Diploma in Integrative Psychodynamic Counselling
  • BSc Hons Psychology
