About me

Each client, brings with them a personal history, set of experiences and issues unique to them. My view is that one size does not fit all in therapeutic work and therefore a tailored approach to your needs is required in order for therapy to be most beneficial. I employ different theoretical approaches to my work, such as Humanistic, Existential, Gestalt, and Attachment Theory. 

I have experience of being a client in therapy and know how challenging this can sometimes be. Having walked that path myself and seen the work from 'both sides', I believe that this deepens my ability to truly empathise and relate to my clients.

I came relatively late to the field of Psychology and finally fulfilled a dream to study Psychology, securing a BSc (Hons) in 2010. I now found myself at the start of something, rather than the end, and was fortunate to be able to study Psychotherapy over a four year programme in Jersey and France.

Now, some 20 years after those first steps, and after more study with the European Centre for Psychotherapeutic Studies to support children, I now work with both adults and children.

In addition I teach on a range of degrees and professional Counselling training courses that have Psychology, Psychotherapy and Counselling at their hearts.  For University College Jersey I have lectured on the Psychology with Criminology degree which we launched in 2017 and Child Development for the Childhood Studies degree. I also lectured on the Psychology of Physical Activity for the Sport & Management degree. Professional training includes delivering  CPCAB Counselling Courses, Levels 2, 3 and Level 4 Diploma, sharing my love of this empowering vocation with students keen to find their own path as Counsellors.

Training, qualifications & experience

As well as a degree in Psychology I also hold a Post Graduate Diploma (Masters Level) in Relational Integrative Psychotherapy from the Scarborough Counselling and Psychotherapy Training Institute and a Post Qualifying Diploma in Counselling Children and Young People, Level 7.

I have also undertaken training with Zoe Lodrick, New Pathways and Christiane Sanderson to enable me to work with survivors of rape and sexual abuse. I was a volunteer therapist with Jersey Action against Rape (JAAR) for five years from its launch in 2015.
