I take an ‘Integrative’ approach, working with both individuals and couples, based on the belief that every client and every relationship is unique. This means I am not tied to one model of therapy but can combine aspects of several models to fit your individual needs. My task may be to help you see more clearly what your situation is, find out how you are a part of it and experiment in finding new and more creative ways to resolve difficulties or enable change. I believe that sometimes the creative process of growing gets interrupted and we can become stuck in fixed patterns and beliefs about ourselves that get in the way. My aim might be to help uncover such patterns and explore how they may be affecting you in your present life.
In addition to my private practice I work as a counsellor for Eating Matters.
I am registered with the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) and abide by their ethical codes of conduct. I take regular supervision in this respect.
