About me

I am registered as an Arts Therapist (Dramatherapist) with the HCPC Registration no. AS14042. I am also a full member of BADth (British Association of Dramatherapists) as well a Fitness to Practice panel member for the HCPC.

​As well as my private practice, I am also a Lecturer in Therapeutic Arts at the University of Derby. Because of this I cannot currently see clients who are training on the MA Dramatherapy programme.

Dramatherapy is a type of psychological therapy that involves the use of the dramatic art-form to promote healing and understanding (BADth). Dramatherapists often work with stories, metaphor, objects and movement to engage the imagination and provide psychological safety when working with difficult or traumatic experiences. People do not need to have experience of drama or acting to be able to engage in dramatherapy, although an interest can be helpful. Dramatherapists work with both children and adults in all manner of settings. In the UK, they are regulated by the Health & Care Professions Council (HCPC).

Training, qualifications & experience

​I qualified with an MA in Dramatherapy in 2010. I also have a PGCert in Higher Education and have completed a Foundation Group Analysis training.

My clinical experience is in working in both adult and child/adolescent mental health settings working with people experiencing difficulties in their lives. I have particular experience in working with stress, burnout, depression, anxiety, trauma, bereavement, family relationship difficulties including working with those supporting a family member with mental health problems and eating disorders.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
