About me

I am an experienced, qualified (MSc) Integrative Psychotherapist and Clinical Supervisor working from an office in Kenilworth.  

Offering face-to-face or online sessions. 

I offer confidential professional counselling and psychotherapy using an integrative approach. I work mainly long-term but the number of sessions depends greatly on the nature of the concern and your preference.

My approach to psychotherapy is from an integrative ‘relational-developmental’ stance, which incorporates Psychodynamic, Object Relations, Attachment Theory, Gestalt, Humanistic and Transactional Analysis.

My primary focus is working with you in a relaxed, relational way.  I believe that the quality of the therapeutic relationship is key to the effectiveness of any therapy.  I aim to provide a secure, nurturing relationship offering a safe space and the time and opportunity to explore your thoughts, feelings and concerns.

My practice is based in Kenilworth, and situated just off the A452, the main road through the town centre. There is on-street parking (currently £1/hour) or within easy reach of local bus routes, and a couple of minutes' walk from Kenilworth train station.

Please do get in contact: I would be happy to talk with you about your concerns and to discuss if psychotherapy could be a suitable option for you.

Clinical Supervision:

I hold a Diploma in Supervision from the Sherwood Psychotherapy Training Institute in Nottingham.  Please get in touch if you’re interested in discussing how we could work together to enhance and support your clinical practice.

Training, qualifications & experience
