About me

DSCF3808_edited.jpg

As an integrative therapist I am trained in three main therapeutic approaches; humanistic, cognitive behavioural and psychodynamic. This allows me to adapt my way of working to each client’s individual needs.

 

Our sense of who we are is deeply entwined with our past and present relationships. As a relational therapist, at the heart of my practice lies the relationship between client and therapist. How a client relates in the therapy room, can give important insight into how they relate to others outside of the room. I therefore rely on the therapeutic relationship to help me navigate the client’s world and explore how past experiences can impact on the present. 

 

I place huge importance on building a supportive and trusting relationship, where I encourage honest and open feedback from my clients. I very much view therapy as a collaborative process, where both therapist and client contribute.

Alongside my private practice, I have worked as a psychotherapist in NHS primary and secondary care and  higher education settings. Most recently I was the Head of Counselling for a health charity that provides low cost counselling to vulnerable women. 

 

Prior to retraining, I worked for ten years in the creative industries, in theatre, TV and music management.
