About me

I’m here to help you hear yourself.

You might be feeling stuck in your relationships with others and/or with yourself. Perhaps difficult experiences from the past feel unfinished. Maybe you’re feeling weighed down by self-criticism.

My first priority is to cultivate with you a therapy environment that feels safe and supportive so that, at a pace that feels comfortable for you, you can bring the concerns in your life that need our attention and care.

I bring an awareness of how our feelings tend to be expressed by and held in our bodies; I’ve found that when we learn to pay attention to what we’re experiencing – looking beyond and below the thoughts and meaning-making that happen in our heads – we tend to be able to hear ourselves more clearly and fully.

Being human, we tend to rely on certain trusted ways – and many of these we learned when we were very young – of dealing with the emotional and practical challenges in our lives. By taking time to notice how and when these habitual trusted ways are serving us well and when they’re hindering us, and by experimenting in therapy with doing things differently than we might usually, we can develop a gentle curiosity towards ourselves from which there is more capacity for self-understanding and self-compassion.

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold a Master of Science degree in Gestalt Pyschotherapy and a Clinical Diploma in Gestalt Psychotherapy. I completed my training at the Metanoia Institute in London.

I have worked as a counsellor in the NHS’s IAPT (Improving Access to Psychological Therapies) counselling services, and in a low-cost counselling service.

I follow the ethical standards of the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) and the Metanoia Code of Ethics and Practice. I have six years of counselling and psychotherapy experience.

Further information

Getting started

I offer both short-term and longer-term therapy. Therapy with me always begins with a stand-alone 50-minute consultation session, so that you and I can both start to get a sense of whether I'm a good fit for you.

If you're interested in booking a session then I would warmly invite you to drop me an email so that we can arrange a brief (free) introductory chat on the phone.
