About me

I am a fully accredited psychotherapist / counsellor. I have experience working with adults on a wide range of issues, including climate change anxiety, generalised anxiety, depression, emotional distress, relationship difficulties and trauma. I have a friendly, respectful and approachable manner.
I offer a free initial consultation.

Training, qualifications & experience

Training and Qualifications:

  • My professional training is an MA in Core Process Psychotherapy; a psychodynamic, body-based approach.
  • I have a PG Diploma in Movement Psychotherapy; a somatic, body-movement orientated approach.
  • I receive supervision commensurate with UKCP requirements.


I have clinical experience working for the NHS, Social Services and the private and charity sectors. I have worked with adults and adolescents with a variety of presenting difficulties listed below.

I work in a relational way bringing awareness to what arises in the sessions. This may include depending on the clients preference; incorporating body felt sensations, the imagination, art & movement to make conscious what is asking to be known. My approach is underpinned by psycho-dynamic theory and experience. I have found that we often struggle repeatedly feeling and acting in a way that does not create happiness for ourselves or for others, but we feel powerless to change these dynamics. By being with the material together, in a safe and supportive way clients have often reported, a lightness, a courage and a sense of meaning returning to their life.
