About me

Following careers in academia and government, I have for over a decade worked in the field of mental health, the majority of which spent in primary care mental health services. This work has focused on a range of emotional, psychological and behavioural issues including depression, anxiety, trauma, abuse, addictions, personality disorders and relationship difficulties.

I am an integrative and relational psychotherapist and counsellor. My initial training combined psychodynamic, humanistic, existential and cognitive behavioural approaches. Within my practice I also incorporate a number of additional approaches including Gestalt, narrative therapy and mindfulness. As well as my initial training I have completed trainings in Interpersonal psychotherapy and couple therapy.

The essence of my approach is the provision of a confidential and safe environment for clients to explore and process aspects of their past and present issues, find acceptance of aspects of their lived experience that cannot be changed and where possible to make meaningful changes to improve their sense of psychological well-being.
