About me

As a qualified integrative psychotherapist, I draw from different approaches in order to listen effectively to your individual experiences. I  provide a safe, confidential, non-judgemental and empathetic space for you to explore, understand and cope with life's difficulties. My approach is integrative and relational which means I work collaboratively with you and your unique experiences.

I have developed a particular interest in Polyvagel Theory (Steven Porges 1994). Clients with a history of trauma can often experience more extreme autonomic responses which in turn can affect their ability to feel safe and connect with others.Learning about our own autonomic nervous system opens the door to self-compassion. We are all faced with a dilemma of balancing the drive to survive with the longing to connect with an other.

I have experience in supporting people from all different walks of life coping with a wide range of difficulties such as anxiety, depression, bereavement, sudden loss, childhood trauma/abuse, bullying, family conflict and relocation. I have over 30 years experience as a health professional, originally as a dentist and now in counselling and psychotherapy.

It takes courage to pick up the phone and find a therapist that you feel you can trust to tell your story too. Please feel free to pick up the phone and leave me a message or send me an email and I will get back to you to answer any queries that you may have and tell you  about the way I work.

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
