I am a trained integrative psychotherapist, which means I have knowledge of multiple therapeutic approaches to allow me to offer you, the client, individualised psychological care. I have experience of working on the telephone, online and in-person with MIND and the NHS alongside my own private practice.
I am a member of both the BACP & UKCP accrediting bodies and all my work is supervised by an experienced therapist.
I work in a relational way and welcome an open dialogue between us in session. I will offer a non-judgemental space for us to explore your internal world, to support immediate challenges or help aid understanding of past concerns.
Being an 'integrative psychotherapist' means having a toolkit that allows me to adapt to each client's needs without being stuck in a formulaic routine.
I will provide the space for you to reflect and maybe for the first time in your life consider who you are and what is important to you. We will work at a pace that allows you to feel safe and in control of the exploration. There are no wrong answers in therapy, considering alternative points of view can often help us come away with a deeper understanding of ourselves, feeling empowered and more able to make decisions.
I am a fully qualified therapist, a member of the BACP and UKCP accrediting bodies, I hold both a Masters' Degree and Postgraduate Certificate in Integrative Psychotherapy and Counselling and from the Regent's University in London.
During my time at MIND, with the NHS and in my own private practice I have had experience with a wide range of presenting issues, including abuse, addiction, anxiety, bereavement and loss of all kinds, cultural issues, adjusting to the challenges of a new life stage, depression, menopause, self-esteem and self-worth, identity issues and life purpose, relationship and/or sexual issues as well as other areas of concern.
