About me

I am an experienced and accredited Individual and Couples Psychotherapist. I provide sessions face-to-face at my Peterborough practice or online by Video (Zoom or WhatsApp) or telephone. I am registered with the UK Council of Psychotherapists (UKCP), Certified Transactional Analyst (CTA) and have completed an MSc in psychotherapy (with Distinction) at the Metanoia Institute London. I have worked in a variety of settings including several years for Mind.

I have extensive experience working with a wide range of issues (see below) for Individuals, Couples and families. I work flexibly offering short-term and long-term therapy to meet specific needs of each client. I am DBS checked and practice within the UKCP ethical code for Psychotherapists.

For individuals, I specialise in working with anxiety, depression, panic attacks, phobias, overwhelming feelings (including; anger, sadness, fear, anxiety, worry, loneliness, emptiness and insecurity), low energy and motivation, low self-esteem, performance anxiety and issues (sports, exams, work etc.), intrusive or compulsive thoughts, trauma and post-traumatic stress, sleeping issues, issues relating to eating disorders (anorexia, bulimia) and weight control, body image and rejection issues, sexual problems, obsessive behaviours and OCD, addiction (smoking, gambling, alcohol), loss of a loved one and bereavement, and relationship difficulties.

For couples I specialise in resolving unhelpful patterns and cycles of conflict that are impacting the relationship as well as issues around trust, betrayal,  abuse, intimacy, sex, separation and divorce.

My approach is relational and based on the latest neuroscientific research for healing. This will involve providing respect, compassion and curiosity within a confidential, non judgemental safe space, as we work together to resolve the issues impacting your life and relationships.

Wheelchair user access
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.
