About me

I am a fully qualified UKCP registered Adult and Child Psychotherapist. I see people for a broad range of issues such as; eating disorders, depression, anxiety, low self esteem, self harm, sexual abuse, relationship problems, loss, panic attacks, life changes, self development etc.

Using a combination of approaches I help individuals overcome what has become problematic in life through the use of long or short term therapy.



Training, qualifications & experience

Formerly involved in teaching and working with physical health I recognised conflicting attitudes, fears and repressed feelings directly influence the body and how we function. My integrative approach draws from Psychoanalytic, Person Centred Mindfulness, Yoga and Meditation therapeutic methods acquired throughout my 18 years of practice.

Together we look at familiar patterns of behaviour alongside present and past experiences to identify, understand and make meaning of what lies at the root of the problem. Ultimately this enables personal and interpersonal change, stability and a better presence of mind.

My experience includes working with adults, children young people in private and voluntary settings. I am a fully accredited UKCP Adult Child and Adolescent Psychotherapist and hold a full disclosure certificate to work with children and young people.

Over the years my interest in mental health includes studying the wide ranging effects of early stress on child development. More recently, how the digital world weaves into the physiological and psychological relational patterns of the dependant child, where they may become more vulnerable to a range of later difficulties, such as; depression, anxiety, self harm, anti social behaviour, addictions or anorexia, as well as physical illness.

        PARENTING & MENTAL HEALTH

        I hold one day Parenting workshops or small groups run over 6 consecutive weeks individually tailored to suit parents or professionals and organisations involved in the welfare of children and young people. I provide an educational programme on parenting and mental health, paying attention to the digital age of social media that adds an additional layer of complexity for parents and children to navigate.  The programme gives a good understanding of what promotes good mental health for children and young people in todays world. We look at the challenges for parents and professionals addressing how to parent and educate well to raise resilient children. The workshop and group sessions gives an opportunity to learn, make comment and self reflect in a therapeutic setting. If interested in more details please call.
