About me

As a Counselling Psychologist, registered with the HCPC, I recognise that there is not one approach to therapy that will suit everyone. Taking the first step to access therapy can be a nerve-wracking process. The most important indicator of therapeutic success is the relationship between client and therapist so do get in touch for a free consultation to see if I am the right therapist for you.

I use an integrative and person-centred approach to work alongside clients to offer a space where they can move towards a better understanding of themselves and the challenges they are facing. With over 1000 hours clinical practice in a variety of settings and a commitment to evidence-based practice I incorporate humanisitic, CBT, psychodynamic, solution focused and cognitive analytic therapy models. An integrative approach to therapy means that I can meet each client as an individual to explore what they need out of therapy.

My work emphasises the importance of the therapeutic relationship and I pride myself on offering a warm and non-judgemental space where clients feel comfortable. I am confident in my abilities to offer help and have worked with people struggling with a range of conditions including low self-esteem, anxiety, mood disorders, stress, eating disorders, personality disorders, trauma and bereavement. I have a particular interest  and expertise in working with people with self-harming behaviours.
