About me

In times of uncertainty and change, experience a sense of 'safety', 'holding' and 'containment' within the boundaries of psychological therapy.

I am an experienced, qualified and registered psychotherapist. I currently work privately and in Primary Mental Health. I offer a professional therapeutic service to adults age 18+. Prospective clients contact me for various reasons and present with diverse needs; for this reason I am able to offer short, medium or long-term therapy.

In private practice my primary objective is to support those clients with challenging, life-enduring concerns, opportunity to explore experiences “in depth”, to make sense of developmental and relational processes which combine to make us who we are. This is an open-ended contract.

You may not know what it is you want to discuss or talk about in therapy so I invite you to contact me for an initial consultation.

We will consider together what has brought you to seek therapy and whether I am the right therapist for you. Should we agree to work together we will allow the work to unfold and pay attention to issues as they present themselves over the course of the therapy.

Training, qualifications & experience

UKCP accredited and registered Integrative Psychotherapist and Clinical Supervisor.

Professional psychotherapy training completed at The Sherwood Psychotherapy Institute (2007-2011)

Masters degree awarded by University of Birmingham (2011)

Clinical Supervision (2016-2018)

My therapeutic experience was initially gained in community based services. Since training and qualifying I have had the privilege of working in the following contexts

  • Higher Education
  • Primary Mental Health
  • BAME organisations
  • Nottingham Counselling Service

Recent continuing professional development includes Attachment and Personality Development; Complex Trauma, Neuroscience and Neurobiology theories and practice; Healing the fragmented selves of Trauma survivors, Inner Child work, Focusing and existential philosophies.

I am particularly interested in supporting clients coping with issues around loss and grief, and with those presenting with trauma, shame or guilt. Depression and acute anxiety may well be symptomatic of deeper concerns.

Psychotherapy offers a unique opportunity to recover from psychological pain and distress; uncover meaning; find hope; experience healing; develop capacity; realise potential; to flourish and to grow.
