I am an integrative, relational psychotherapist which means that I am able to incorporate a number of different ways of thinking into my work, depending on what is most appropriate for each client.
This can vary from person to person, and from moment to moment.

I have experience helping with these issues, and many more:

  • Anxiety, bereavement, divorce or another kind of loss;
  • Difficulties regarding work, relationships, children, health,
    money, sex;
  • Parents’ concerns about their children’s mental health and other
    parenting difficulties or dilemmas;
  • Feeling unfulfilled, misunderstood, lonely, stuck in life;
  • Anxiety in pregnancy and post-natal depression/anxiety;
  • Career change
  • Step-families
  • Addictions

I offer a respectful and confidential space where my aim is to help you build up enough trust in me to enable us to explore your difficulties or concerns together, without shame or judgment. My role is to help you gain a clearer understanding of yourself and your relationship with others, in order to live a happier, healthier, more meaningful and more fulfilling life.

My six-year training means that I can draw on many theoretical approaches including psychodynamic, relational, person-centred, attachment, body psychotherapy, existential and neuroscience. Although I do use theory as a bedrock to my practice, first and foremost my aim is to be authentic and present in the room with my clients, and to meet and explore their individual and changing needs.

Initial Session:
Before starting therapy, we will have an initial consultation. This is an opportunity to discuss your thoughts and ideas about why you are seeking help and also allows me to see how I can best help you. An initial session doesn’t always lead to working together.

Once we agree to work together, the sessions – usually 50 minutes for individuals and 60-90 minutes for couples – will take place at the same time each week. This is important as it provides a sense of continuity and a safe space to explore and contain your process. I am happy to see you for as long or short a time as we feel is helpful; we can work this out together. I have found that more than one session per week can bring about change more quickly.

Ethics and governing body organisations:
I am a member of BACP and a registered member of UCKP and abide by their guidelines regarding ethics and confidentiality.
