About me

I am UKCP-registered Psychotherapist and Certified Transactional Analyst (CTA-P) offering both short-term and long-term psychotherapy to individuals, couples and groups.

We live in stressful and challenging times: wars, climate crisis, cost-of-living crisis dominate the news that surround us. And there is often an unspoken message that we should be constantly feeling happy and positive. However constant challenges can leave people feeling isolated and alone in their worries and struggles.

I aim to provide a safe space for you to talk about what brings you to therapy. Sometimes it’s clear (a relationship breakdown, work or parenting for example), other times, it might be a need to share how unhappy, lost and hopeless you might be feeling.

​Often people want to be heard. To know they have an impact on others; that they matter and what they have to say is important. Relationships can be healing when we feel safe and understood enough, to bring our full selves – the light and the darkness.

My hope is that together we will help you gain an understanding of yourself in a much deeper way, gaining deeper insight into how past ways of relating might be holding you back, how much we are powerfully shaped by the culture around us, our family's history within us, and in doing so to transform your understanding and knowing of yourself and how you relate to others and the world.
