MA Integrative Psychotherapy, UKCP, In Person & Online

About me

I provide a safe and confidential space to facilitate well being by helping clients to reflect, process, shift and transform unhealthy thought patterns with the intention of working towards a more positive outlook on life and a 'can do' attitude.

What can you expect from working with me?

I work in a relational way. I provide a safe space where we can talk, think, reflect and make a plan of action, working towards change and transformation. Our therapeutic relationship will evolve over time. I will coach, support and work alongside you on your journey to emotional independence.

Initial Contact

Once you make contact, we will arrange a free initial 20min meeting online (Zoom) or via phone. This will give you a chance to get a sense of me and we can talk about basic requirements and expectations that you are seeking as a person who needs some emotional support. I offer weekly short and long term sessions. I will do a basic assessment in our first session, collating background information and presenting issues and thinking about how I may be able to help you.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am an adult trained at Masters level, UKCP registered Integrative Psychotherapist with 20 years experience of providing therapeutic services. My therapeutic orientation is Integrative encorporating the arts where appropriate.

I work with various issues such as depression, anxiety, trauma, abuse, anger, low self esteem, relationships, race culture, diversity, career change and business ideas. I also provide Reflective Practice 1:1 and small groups.

Further information

My therapeutic style

I am trained as an Integrative Psychotherapist using several different theoretical concepts to inform my practice such as Attachment Theory, Transactional Analysis, Gestalt, Psychodynamic and CBT. I am not a conventional therapist. This means that I can work outside of the box,  I encourage clients to connect with themselves through using creativity and nature to facilitate the therapeutic process.

I also offer Energy work to assist in the process. I use the arts where appropriate too. I might invite you to use poetry, music, the imagination and metaphor to help express your issues.

I am down to earth, open and warm with a natural sense of humour. I am a regular person just trying to make a difference to this world, my intention is always to inspire people to aspire to live a better quality of life with purpose.
