About me

In my practice I offer talking therapy for individuals and couples as a way to address difficulties and find clarity. Through sharing your story with me you get to better know yourself, your life and relationships. My practice offers a space in which to explore and feel supported.

My style is friendly and creative. I have a Masters Degree in Psychotherapy and my style of therapy is Integrative and Transpersonal, which means I draw on various models and techniques depending on the needs of my clients. Some of these include; Existential, Psychodynamic, Transactional Analysis, Mindfulness, Gestalt, Object Relations, Dream Work and Imago.

My background is in Design where I worked for many years before re-training to follow a passion for Psychology and self-development. I continue to work creatively, now as an Artist.

If you would like to find out more about talking therapy with me - send me an email so we can organise an initial online session.

My practice is currently online - using Skype, VSee, Zoom or FaceTime

As a BACP and UKCP registered Psychotherapist I offer a space in which to explore and understand what is causing difficulty.

Below is a bit about me and my approach.

We all have many aspects of ourselves that differentiate us as well as similarities. In my work your personal story is what is most important. How has your past influenced how you now feel about others, life in general and yourself?

My role is not to direct you, but instead build a sense of your life so that we can get a picture of why certain things are the way they are for you. Through awareness we can then look at what you can do about it, what you would like for yourself and what needs to happen to enable this.

I have a Masters Degree in Psychotherapy and have also trained in couples therapy, dream work and advanced Psychotherapy. Before training as a therapist I worked as a Designer and now have an art practice.

What to expect during the session

During your first session we explore the issues, check that psychotherapy is the right action for you and see how you feel about working with me. After that I offer 4 initial sessions as an assessment period. This allows time to really see whether working together can help you moving forward. At this point we review and if we agree that this is of benefit we would then continue our work together on a weekly basis.

For individuals -

Our work together is confidential and is a space for you to talk about the things that are troubling you. These may be related to current situations or difficulties that you've been struggling with for some time. My job is to reflect back what I hear and help you get a sense of the patterns that may be keeping you stuck or causing distress. Together we then explore how best to move forward. It can be a huge relief to give voice to difficulties feel heard and understood. I also offer exercises and work to do in between sessions.

For couples -

Often couples who come to work with me describe having lost connection with each other. This loss of connection is very painful and is often at the heart of most relationship conflict. I see much of my work as helping couples find their way back into connection.

We aren't taught how to be in a relationship or how best to express our needs and fully understand the needs of our partner. What I offer is an opportunity to learn new ways to communicate and as a result develop a deeper understanding of yourself, your partner and the relationship itself.

Below is a summary of the issues I often work with -

  • - Fear & anxiety
    - Self-doubt
    - Partnerships & marriages
    - Stress
    - Dream work
