About me

Therapy isn't just for a crisis.

You might be noticing some repetitive behaviour patterns, maybe attracting the same relationships or reverting to a particular way of being in your relationships - whether that's romantic, family, work, or friendships.

You may be developing some self-awareness that you would like to explore further, or you may indeed be in the midst of a crisis, life change, or transition.

I believe that our past experiences and relationships shape who we are today. I also believe we all have the power to change and our experiences do not define us. I will help you safely explore your inner world at your own pace, working in a trauma informed way to establish safety and trust within the therapeutic relationship.

As an Integrative Therapist, I draw on a range of approaches with a particular interest in Psychodynamic, Attachment, Parts work, Trauma & Abuse, Ecotherapy (working outdoors in nature) and creative approaches. I also work with key workers and NHS staff on a range of issues.

I work with individuals and couples and am currently undertaking further training in the Gottman Method Couples Therapy

Our work together will always be collaborative and I like to review sessions regularly to ensure you are getting what you need from our time together.

I work outdoors / In person / Online

My fees are £50 per 50-minute session and I offer some concessions, key worker rates and student rates.

Further information

Our work together will always be collaborative and your goals will be at the heart of our work. We will have regular reviews to ensure you are getting what you need from our time together.

If you have a history of trauma, our work is gentle and slow without the need to revisit memories.

When working with relationships, I help you develop an awareness of your relationship dynamics and communication styles with insight into their origins.
