About me

My approach and training is ‘Integrative’ which means I am qualified in a range of psychotherapeutic approaches and theoretical perspectives. This enables me to work flexibly on an individual and moment-to-moment basis. I work from a ‘Relational’ perspective which accepts human beings as 'social animals' and therefore, that connections to others are central to our sense of well-being. Various forms of ‘break' in these connections often forms the core of our concerns or distress and hinders our psychological and emotional well-being.

Every person is entirely unique in the most literal sense and, as such, there can be no such thing as a ‘one-size fits all’ or ‘off the shelf’ approach to well-being. My experience and training is in the schools of Psychodynamic, Gestalt, Person-Centred and Cognitive-Behavioural approaches and I am a registered member of both the British Psychological Society (BPS) and the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).


I have worked within the NHS for several years, providing support to both NHS staff and the general public. I have experience of working with the effects of a variety of situations and experiences such as:
 

  • Anxiety

  • Panic

  • Depression

  • Loneliness

  • Stress

  • Anger related issues

  • Self-esteem and confidence issues

  • Domestic abuse

  • Emotional abuse

  • Gaslighting

  • Psychological abuse

  • Sexual abuse

  • Childhood abuse and trauma

  • Relationship and family related issues

  • Bereavement and Loss


I also have experience of supporting people who have received psychiatric diagnoses such as ‘schizophrenia’, ‘psychosis’ and ‘bipolar affective disorder’.​
