About me

Hello. Sometimes we can feel stuck in a pattern of behaviour that seems so hard to get out of, even when we know that it is not helpful. Life can feel like an uphill struggle or relationships combative and stressful. Therapy provides a space to explore this, with someone impartial with no agenda or axe to grind, somewhere to explore what is really going on for us and how our unmet needs show up again and again.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a Counselling Psychologist and Integrative Psychotherapist with many years experience of working with a wide variety of clients with presenting concerns including trauma, depression, health concerns, anger management, anxiety, EUPD / BPD, self harm and suicidal ideation. My Doctoral research was on the development of self-compassion in women who have experienced childhood sexual abuse. Using an approach of being 'integrative' means that I haven't already decided, before even meeting you, what approach to take. It means listening to you and exploring together how to make sense of your feelings and behaviour.

Whilst in training at the Metanoia Institute I was required to have personal therapy myself so I understand how difficult it can be to both ask for help and face the prospect of change. In the first session, we would explore your problems, goals and expectations of therapy.

​I am also a fully qualified teacher of Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) and MBCT (Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy), holding regular classes and workshops in Buckinghamshire and Berkshire. I am proud to be a member of the UK Listing of Mindfulness Teachers which means that I have been able to demonstrate (via an assessment process) that I meet the UK Good Practice Guidance for Mindfulness-Based Teachers i.e. that I am: suitably trained, committed to continuous professional development, hold appropriate insurance and am receiving supervision for my teaching.
