As an integrative, person-centred psychotherapist, the approach I use is determined by the individual and their needs. My work with you involves an exploration and understanding of your life and experience from birth to present, including unconscious processes and dreams. I seek to understand thought patterns, fears, obstacles and unhelpful perceptions that stand in the way of love and success. You are encouraged to talk about and understand your feelings, and to learn to distinguish between truth and fear.
Our first session is an assessment where we can discuss any questions or concerns you may have, as well as expectations and hopes.
I have helped numerous clients and patients work through anxiety and depression, addiction, bereavement, panic attacks, and more. Having worked as a trainee in an NHS hospital, I also work with more complex issues and personality disorder.
As a qualified practitioner in Alternative Dispute Resolution I am also trained to work in the professional arena, frequently asked to help teams of co-workers to operate more efficiently and peacefully.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have been working with people helping to understand themselves better for nearly 20 years. For many years I worked in media for various publications and websites as an Agony Aunt and daily columnist. I am also a published writer, and this work continues in response to demand.
In 2010 I trained and worked with Cruse as a Bereavement counsellor, thus building on my experience and integrating the tools into my expanding tool kit.
I have recently completed the MA course in Psychotherapy and Counselling at Regent's University. Part of the training required working in placements while studying. I was a volunteer counsellor at Mind for 2 years. I continue to work as an honorary trainee in an NHS.
