About me

I am a qualified psychotherapist and have a private practice in Cookham, Berkshire and work online. I have over 12 years experience of working with people on a short and long-term basis depending on individual needs and circumstances. I provide a warm, empathic and non-judgmental environment so you can bring whatever thoughts, feelings or life events that are impacting you with confidence and assurance that you will be heard and respected.

I am an integrative and energy practitioner, which means I have studied different modalities of psychotherapy theory, and work with the subtle energy systems of the body to heal trauma and work at a deeper level.  The gentle methods of Energy Psychotherapy facilitate healing by releasing the stress of emotional and energetic residues of trauma at a deep bodily level.  This also works with the bodies nervous system to calm and help self regulate.

I am passionate about personal wellbeing and believe happiness and fulfilment is possible for everyone. It may feel a distant dream at times but taking time out of everyday life to look inwards is a necessary step towards achieving this.

Modern day life is often burdened with little time and many daily pressures, and taking time out for our emotional wellbeing is essential for future happiness. Often anxiety and depression can be present and we need to manage this as well as every day life. I believe everyone has the capacity to change and grow if they choose to, and I can help bring relief and insight into whatever you are going through right now.

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold an MSc in Integrative Psychotherapy from the Metanoia Institute in London. My five year training covers many aspects of psychotherapy modalities. I have over ten years experience during which I have worked extensively with long and short term clients to meet individual needs and circumstances.

I am an accredited member of the UKCP (UK Council for Psychotherapy).

Further information

As part of my training I was required to have personal psychotherapy for my own development, so I have experience of participating in therapy. I know that sometimes it is difficult to know what to say or where to start. What is really important is how you feel, so if you feel that you want or need to speak to someone then pick up the phone and we will figure out the rest when we speak.
