About me

The challenging times we currently find ourselves in, bring many issues to the surface. The difficulties that arise for you may include struggles with identity, self-esteem, stress, anxiety, depression, grief and bereavement, or strained family or romantic relationships. You may experience feelings of isolation and difficulty in finding a sense of meaning and purpose, perhaps struggling to find a path through life or a a way of being that you feel is really you. Through exploration of the issues you face, we can use therapy to develop self-insight and transform life's difficulties into opportunities for growth and self-discovery.

I work in an integrative way, drawing upon a range of theories to create a therapy which meets you where you are. I offer a compassionate space in which we can work with thoughts, feelings, intuition, sensations, values, life-story, imagery, symbols, dreams, lived experiences, and how we experience ourselves in the relational context of being in the world.

I offer a warm, kind and gentle approach, with a focus upon providing a safe, non-judgemental setting, so that we may build a strong therapeutic relationship, within which to work.

Please get in touch by email to arrange an initial session, in which we can discuss your needs and expectations of therapy.
The next step would be to undertake a series of six weekly sessions, to further explore how therapy could be of help to you.
Beyond which, we can continue on a longer-term basis, with weekly sessions.

Please note, I am currently only able to offer on-line sessions.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have undertaken a professional postgraduate training diploma (PGDip) and an MA in integrative transpersonal psychotherapy.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

I am currently only offering sessions online. When I am able to resume face-to-face work, CCPE has the facilities for wheelchair access.
