I am an experienced UKCP registered, Integrative Psychotherapist and my practice is easily accessible close to Leamington Spa town centre. 'Integrative' simply means that I integrate several different models of therapy in my philosophy, offering you a bespoke experience. I also think of integrating the mind and body, working together in harmony as you begin trust your gut instinct.
I have a relational/developmental approach and believe that we develop our sense of self in relationship with significant others. For this reason I place value and emphasis on the therapeutic relationship that we will build together. I offer a warm, empathic welcome and a confidential space where you can explore your concerns. At the present time I am limited to offering online consultations via Zoom. Please don't let this deter you though as it can be remarkably effective and there will be a time in the future when we can meet face to face.
Emotional well-being and happiness are the essence of a contented life and these uncertain times may have left you feeling anxious and isolated. Entering into counselling is an opportunity to explore your emotional distress and discover more about yourself and who you really are. By reaching out and talking to someone without fear of judgement, you can restore resilience and balance in your life reconnecting with your true self.

Areas of counselling I deal with
Other areas of counselling I deal with
Sometimes it can be good to take time to reflect on our situation or responses in relationship with others. Perhaps you are reflecting on a new stage of life such as starting a family, midlife or menopause and feel it would be helpful to have someone to explore your feelings with.
Whatever your current situation I would be happy to hear from you to discuss your concerns.
My fee is £50 per 1 hour session.
I offer a free initial assessment.
Concessions offered for
Being in relationship with others is a fundamental human need. I believe that our childhood experiences influence our behaviour and how we learn to be in relationship today. When the past impinges on the present it can lead us to feel unhappy, anxious or depressed. Exploring how we feel about our early relationships can help us to integrate adverse childhood experiences and allow us to make the changes we need to move forward with our lives.
It takes strength and courage to seek help. Choosing the right therapist is an important decision and for this reason I offer a free initial consultation giving us an opportunity to discuss what changes you would like to make in your life and whether I am the right therapist for you.
