I work as an integrative therapist, meaning I apply a depth understanding of a number of approaches to thinking about human relationships and psychology. In theoretical terms, my work is chiefly guided by humanistic thinking, particularly Gestalt psychotherapy, and by attachment theory.  Primarily I am a relational therapist: I believe that we learn who we are and how we engage with others in our early relationships, and that through novel relationships - with a therapist for example - we can change unhelpful learned patterns and find a new way for ourselves.

I have particular clinical and personal interests in death, dying and bereavement, and relational trauma/complex PTSD.  I work part-time in private practice, where I see clients for long and short-term work.  I also co-manage an IAPT-funded community counselling service in Cambridge, providing short-term NHS-funded counselling in GP surgeries and community settings.

I offer supervision face-to-face in Chrishall (SG8) or by video conferencing.  My working hours are flexible Monday-Friday between 8.00am and 9.00pm, weekends possible by arrangement.

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
