About me

Hello and welcome to my information page. I offer psychotherapy and counselling to adults in both online video and face-to-face settings.

As a psychotherapist, I have the privilege of sharing in each client’s personal exploration to a more satisfying way of living. My motivation began, and continues to be, with my own experience as a client, my curiosity and determination to grow by defining and honouring my experience and my beliefs. So as a therapist I offer and share my curiosity, tenacity, attention, excitement, to support my clients to foster and honour their own experience and beliefs.

In my experience, psychotherapy and counselling can have a significant impact on our lives, it offers an opportunity to develop our relationship to ourselves and to others in new and more fulfilling ways. I believe that our experience begins with our relationship to ourselves. So learning about how we experience ourselves emotionally, behaviourally and physically, informs us personally and professionally.

I work with adults: individuals and couples.

Areas of interest include:

The areas I work with include: low mood, depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, bereavement, loss, trauma, adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse, stress, relationship issues, personal growth and more- this is not an exhaustive list so do get in touch if you would like to explore working with me.

Training, qualifications & experience

I accredited as a humanistic psychotherapist with the UKCP (United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy) in 2003 with Spectrum Therapy. (Reg. 04156134) and I am a Registered Member of the BACP. (Reg. 150458)

I work eclectically using a range of models and influences including gestalt, working relationally, formative psychology and polyvagal theory.

I have over twenty years’ experience in private practice as a psychotherapist, combined with a decade each of practicing in the NHS as a counsellor in a GP Surgery and as a Bereavement, Loss and Trauma counsellor in a hospital setting.

I qualified as an online psychotherapist having trained with the Online Therapy Institute as a Certified Cyber Therapist to work online and am member of ACTO (Association for Counselling & Therapy Online) Member No. 0770.

Continued Professional Development:

I am a member of three on going professional groups; A post-graduate continuation group, an on going  - Formative Psychology – professional dream group, and a working with couples group.  As well as attending further training on other subjects that interest me, including the growing understanding of neuroscience and polyvagal theory.
