About me

I offer a calm, accepting and non-judgemental environment, with a holistic integrative approach to therapy which comprises your physical, emotional, volitional, rational and spiritual wellbeing.  I approach the therapeutic relationship in a non-diet, body-acceptance/neutral perspective.  I work to help clients dismantle the effects of diet culture and weight stigma in their lives.

I am trauma informed, and work with issues such as:

  • depression (including post-natal depression)
  • anxiety (including generalised anxiety disorder, and health anxiety)
  • stress
  • low self-esteem
  • anger
  • relationship difficulties (including family estrangement)
  • spiritual issues
  • bereavement and loss (including miscarriage and abortion).

As an integrative therapist, I combine different psychotherapy modalities such as CBT, Transactional Analysis, Gestalt, Psychodynamic, which means your therapy will be bespoke to your needs. I am also a trained Internal Family Systems Practitioner (Level 2).  IFS Practitioners have been officially trained by Internal Family Systems UK or the IFS Institute.

I incorporate Mindfulness, Attachment Theory and Inner Child into my work with individuals.

The Therapeutic Relationship is an integral part of therapy, I offer a reduced fee for our preliminary online session to determine whether we feel working together would be beneficial for you. Text, call or email to book your session.
