About me

Psychotherapy can help you find a path through the tangled places we all sometimes find ourselves in. If you are struggling with a particular issue, such as anxiety, alienation, perfectionism, addiction or bereavement, approaching and accepting your unique experience and ways of being with compassion and mindfulness can lead to profound self-realisation, integration and healing. I provide a confidential space in which you can enquire into your history and patterning to awaken a shift in perspective and behaviour.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am fully accredited with UKCP and hold an MA in Mindfulness Based Psychotherapeutic Practice and a Diploma in Core Process Psychotherapy. I am qualified in Internal Family Systems (Level 1) and have experience in Somatic Experiencing, Focussing and mindfulness techniques.
