Finding a good balance has never been more important as we continue to live through such challenging times. Developing more resilience; feeling more grounded; creating healthy work/life boundaries and strengthening our connections with others are crucial for reducing anxiety or feelings of despair or depression.
I have 20 years of therapeutic experience, within an NHS setting, various organisations and now in private practice. I work with individuals (18yrs+) and couples and specialise in relationship with Self and others, anxiety, depression, loss, trauma. This list is not exhaustive though (please see list below) as I work with whatever you need to bring.
I would say I am an humanitarian at heart and have a particular interest in how each of us finds meaning in our experience of life. I see wellbeing as holistic and encourage it's development at every level - emotional, physical, spiritual and mental.
With this in mind, I offer an integrative approach, combining different modalities such as person-centred, psychodynamic, CBT, mindfulness, transpersonal (spiritual/existential), creative arts, embodied psychotherapy and family systemic therapies. You are a unique individual and we will work with whatever you bring, in a way that feels right for you.
Prior to my psychotherapy training, I worked in the private sector for many years, within a learning and development setting where I provided coaching and performance feedback for employees. I also provide supervision for other therapists.
At the moment, all sessions are via Zoom. Having never worked online prior to the pandemic, I have found it to be a surprisingly effective alternative to face-to-face. I'm aware it may not suit everyone, but if you are considering therapy at the moment, I would encourage you to give it a try.

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.
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.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
