About me

Life can sometimes present us with numerous situations that can feel over whelming, for example grief, loss, work stress, relationship difficulties, menopause, transitions in life - you name it and it has an impact on how we view ourselves, our relationships and how to perceive a future - talking to someone safe can help process these experiences.

An integral part of my practice is offering a containing, supportive, yet challenging environment in which to explore and make links between emotional distress, your current situation and life experience. I believe in offering a regular, safe, non judgemental and supportive space to explore whatever experience you wish and working collaboratively to find a way forward for as long or as short a time as you need.

I am a psychotherapist with 28 years experience of working in the NHS with people experiencing all kinds of  mental health issues, relationship, domestic violence, marginalisation, complexity of childhood experience (sexual, emotional, physical abuse, separation and loss)  sexual identity issues, self harm, personality and addiction difficulties.

I work within the peaceful environment of Turvey Monastery which is accepting of all and I am part of The Turvey Groupwork Clinical Practice. I am non religious and accepting of all spirituality.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

Working with people who wish to identify as non binary and those who wish to transition from one gender to another or however they wish to identify.

I have extensive experience with working with people who identify as LGBTQ both individually and in supportive groups, I am passionate about offering safe and inclusive therapuetic spaces for people to explore themselves in a nonjudgmental environment.

I work in a relational way and feel the therapuetic relationship is integral to the work we can do together, whilst thinking about the context in which you live and the support you may have outside the therapy room.

Specialised work with people experiencing personality disorder including EUPD, BPD
