I provide a safe none critical space for you to communicate your thoughts and feelings.
I provide guidance and strategies to help you through your concerns.
I appreciate that seeking help can be a challenge and want to make this step in your life as clear, simple and easy as possible.
Just as you would go to the doctor for a physical problem for specialist support, counselling and psychotherapy can help you for emotion and mental struggles.
To arrange an over the phone consultation, you can email me.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am trained in Integrative Psychotherapy and have completed a level 7 Graduate Diploma in Compassion Focused Therapy. I provide 1:2:1 and group Compassion Focused Therapy techniques.
I have training in mindful meditation and other mindfulness practices by the British Mindfulness Institute.
I have worked as a therapist for over 5 years.
I endeavour to be inclusive in my delivery of both group and 1:2:1 therapeutic and educational work. I take into consideration different needs, understandings and backgrounds so all can engage in a safe and beneficial way. I am fortunate that I work in a team that is multi-racial, different ages, wide range of cultures, religions, orientations and physical abilities and interests. We celebrate each individual’s unique qualities and I learn new things about the diversity of human life everyday.

Training people in compassion can have a wide range of physiological, psychological and therapeutic benefits.
Compassion has been widely accepted to be one of the most crucial abilities of the human mind for more than 3000 years.
Most religions appreciate the power of compassion.
In the last 30 years, Psychology has focused on the positive impact compassion has on the human brain.
One of the most important processes in Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT), is to stimulate a desire to cultivate a compassionate self and use a compassionate perspective (Gilbert, 2009)
Clients are invited to imagine the potential benefits of having certain qualities, in particular wisdom, strength and a commitment to be compassionate (Gilbert and Choden, 2013)
CFT uses a range of breathing, postural, imaginal, recall and method acting techniques to help people have an experience of what it is, or could be like, to be a compassionate self (Cannon, 2012)
