About me

Hi.

From 20th September 2021 I am starting to offer in person therapy but continue to mainly working online. Online, I can offer three different platforms dependant on your choice.  The work we do online is similar to "in person" with the difference that we both need to ensure we are in a safe and confidential environment where we will not be interrupted and feel at ease to explore freely the issues that bring you to therapy. Please contact me to have an informal chat, happy to answer any of your questions.

I have been working in this field of talking therapy as a UKCP Registered Psychotherapist for the last 15 years.

I hold a Masters in Humanistic Person-Centred Psychotherapy from Sherwood Psychotherapy Training Institute, Nottingham endorsed by the University of Birmingham, Birmingham.

I am a Certified Focusing-Oriented Therapist , London Focusing, endorsed by The International Focusing Association, New York.

I work mainly with adults (Age 18 onwards). It could be helpful to have initially an informal chat so feel free to call me.

In the dialogue established during your therapy, the different psychological components (thoughts, emotion, behaviour, physical and spiritual presence) that determine a person to seek therapy are equally attended to. Establishing realistic goals are an on-going component of my work.
