Psychotherapy and Counselling

About me

I am a UKCP registered Humanistic&Integrative Psychotherapist with 20 years of experience. I believe we all have the ability to find our way through difficulties life brings, but that at times we stuck or lost.  At these times therapy/ counselling offers a space in which to explore what is going on, and how to find ways forward.

CURRENT : I am back to offering face to face sessions indoors, as well as on line. I continue offering sessions OUTDOORS. 

Sessions in FINNISH also ! Ota yhteytta ...

I enjoy working with people of all ages, backgrounds and cultures. I work in a person centered way respecting the pace and space that each client coming to meet me brings. I draw in my thinking and relating on theories that have over the years connected with me most, and proved to be ones supporting my clients best. 

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
