About me

I am a BACP registered relational, integrative psychotherapist with over 25 years of therapeutic experience. I work with a very wide wide range of people so if you are not sure if I am right for you, please do call and have a chat. Whilst my client base is varied, my specialist interest is working with professionals in law, policing, social work , health and allied professions whose day to day work brings them into contact with very difficult material. This work can make us vulnerable to vicarious and secondary trauma and I am passionate about combatting this in my therapy sessions but also in workplace wellbeing services.

Therapy with me will often feel like a conversation, but it is a conversation in which I will question and often provide feedback and perspective, whilst encouraging you to develop your own hypotheses and insights. I believe that you are the expert in your experience and I act as a guide in developing a deeper understanding of yourself and some of your experiences of the world.

My therapeutic style is integrative and relational, combining a holistic approach with evidence-based practice, that is treatment that is backed by scientific evidence.

The holistic approach, incorporates all aspects of yourself. Your emotional aspects, attitudes and beliefs (mental), physical manifestations of struggles (body), and spiritual aspects (what gives you hope, meaning and purpose). Any or all may be addressed in the therapy process. Because I am not bound by one theoretical discipline, I may also draw on wider culture, bio- social-medical science, art and literature in my practice.
