I am a UKCP registered Integrative Arts Psychotherapist. My practice is based in the Kingston upon Thames/Surbiton area. I work with clients using a range of therapeutic techniques and see clients weekly on short term and on a long term basis according to need.
The initial meeting is essentially an assessment of what is possible and what might work for the client should he or she decide to come for therapy.
I have an interest in the relationship between psychology/spirituality and the creative process as a tool for rejuvenation, wellness and personal healing (and I have many years experience of working and supporting trainee therapists) I have also specialised in training groups dealing with Loss and Bereavement as well as working with individuals on this issue of Bereavement or Anticipatory Grief. I also specialise in supervising therapists working with Dementia.
