About me

I am a UKCP registered Integrative Psychotherapist and Counsellor.  I trained at The Minster Centre in London, completing an Advanced Diploma and an MA in Integrative Psychotherapy and Counselling.  I have been seeing client’s in several settings since 2006.

I have extensive experience of working with depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties, work related issues, difficulties stemming from childhood, trauma, self-esteem and confidence issues, bereavement, cultural struggles and family dynamics. I have a particular interest in helping client’s who have been struggling with a loss of identity and/ or meaning in life.

I have a private practice in Northampton. Alongside my practice I am an experienced trauma critical incident responder.

I provide both long and short term psychotherapy and counselling.
