About me

I'm a professionally qualified integrative counsellor/psychotherapist with experience working in a many situations and settings. Integrative means that the foundation of the way I work comes from several schools of thought.  There have been a lot of theories developed around what effects our mental health.  I believe that having a good grasp of many of these theoretical ideas of what and how things affect our lives it.  This forms the integrative approach.

However I believe much of what is helpful in counselling/psychotherapy is feeling comfortable with the person you are working with. Building a bond with a therapist can be powerful in opening up some of the issues that may be effecting your life.  There is a huge value in being in a space that is 'your space'. This includes beginning to talk about things that you may never have spoken to anyone about.  This takes trust and this is much of what I aim to provide - the trust and the space to explore.

I trained in New York City and London and have worked helping people for the past 17 years.  I work with individuals and couples and the issues affecting their lives be they recent, relating to the past or a bit of both.
