About me

I am a qualified psychotherapist with 34 years of experience. I work in Cambridge and am registered with the UKCP. I provide both short-term and long-term therapy for adults, couples and adolescents. I offer an initial assessment to gather information, explore your concerns and collaboratively decide what might be right for you.

I am a humanistic/integrative therapist. I trained at the Gestalt Center in London, as well as completing a two-year groupwork training.

My experience working as a therapist has been extensive, working with depression, anxiety, trauma, addiction, loss, relationships and gender issues. I have also worked within a family therapy team for three years.

I now have a private practice. My aim is to always provide an open, supportive and ethical service. I aim to enable exploration and a greater awareness of ourselves and our patterns; thereby creating greater choice and freedom in how we live.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have worked within psychiatry for 15 years, including 3 years in the psychotherapy department. I have also worked within the addiction services. My last post in the NHS was within a hospice and oncology setting, providing a psychological service for patients, carers and the bereaved.

During my time in the NHS, I had the privilege of working with many different professionals who were trained in various modalities – from creative therapists (art/music/dance) to psychodynamic/analytic therapists – this further influenced and enriched my original training. I am very interested in creativity in all its forms and for 3 years ran a group integrating dance and therapy. I have also co-facilitated an arts-therapy group.

As a member of UKCP I abide by their standards and ethical framework.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
