About me

There are times in everyone's life when things can feel overwhelming. At others, we can find ourselves repeating unhelpful or destructive patterns in our behaviour or relationships. At these difficult, and sometimes very distressing times, therapy can, quite literally, be a life-saver. For others, therapy can be an exciting space for personal development, growth and exploration.

My therapeutic approach integrates elements of: Psychodynamic and Cognitive Behavioural [CBT] Therapies, with both a Relational and Humanistic emphasis on a direct and authentic relationship. My practice has a foundation in both Mindfulness and a radical acceptance of the human condition - these principles underpin all my work. Evidence Based Therapies; Research has shown the therapies that I deliver; to be effective across a range of presenting difficulties.
