About me

Compassion, ethical practice and authenticity is what is at the heart of the way I practice. I integrate a variety of approaches, including evidence-based modalities, in order to create a unique, bespoke therapy that resonates most with what is important to you at this time in your life.

I aim to offer a compassionate and safe enough space for self-discovery, where we together explore and address your current challenges, so that you can live a more fulfilling and meaningful life that is true to you and your values.

I specialise in trauma and trauma-informed therapy (including EMDR, TF-CBT, TF-CFT, NET), and I have a particular interest and significant experience in Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT) and mindfulness-based approaches.

If you would like to know more about how I can help you, please get in touch.
