About me

I am a UKCP registered Humanistic&Integrative Psychotherapist with over 18 years of practise. I believe we all have the ability to find our way through difficulties life brings, but that at times we stuck and lost. At these times therapy/ counselling can support you by offering a space in which to explore what is going on, and how to find a way forward again.

CURRENT : I now offer sessions in an OUTDOOR SETTING. Please do make contact to find out more. Otherwise all sessions are ON LINE or PHONE

Sessions in FINNISH also ! Ota yhteytta ...

I enjoy working with people of all ages, backgrounds and cultures. No issue or difficulty is unwelcome in my therapy space; common concerns clients arrive with are relationship problems, anxiety, feeling depressed, loss of direction, a traumatic life event (recent or in further past), stress, big changes in life, obsessive patterns, fertility etc
Work can be short or long term.

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold an MA in Humanistic and Integrative Psychotherapy.

I regularly attend further professional training, workshops and supervision. I am currently particularly interested in our relationship with nature, and the therapeutic and restorative qualities of it.

I have experience of working both in private and organisational settings. I am experienced in working with young people - NOTE privately 16 years and up

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.
