About Me and My Practice

I am a fully qualified integrative counsellor and psychotherapist and a member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapy (MBACP) and British Psychological Society (MBPsS).

My role as a therapist is to work alongside you to help find ways to understand and address the issues you may be facing. My approach is to build a safe, trusting and confidential environment that challenges and supports you but also encourages self-awareness, resilience and personal growth.

My therapeutic approach is integrative which means I can draw upon different skills and techniques (Humanistic, Psychodynamic, Existential, Cognitive Behavioural) that may best support you and your personal goals.

I have particular experience in supporting clients from corporate backgrounds and the creative industries. Familiar concerns have included issues with identity, true/false selves, managing relationships, power dynamics – some of which can manifest in anxiety, depression, insomnia and other psychological issues.

I offer face to face, online or telephone sessions based on your individual requirements.

Experience

As well as working in private practice, I also currently provide psychotherapeutic services in voluntary settings (MIND) and statutory organisations. I work with both individuals and couples and have many years experience in working with clients from wide ranging and diverse backgrounds and communities.

● Anxiety and generalised anxiety ● Depression ● Stress ● Work related issues ● Work/Life balance ● Low self esteem ● Abuse/Trauma ● Anger and anger management ● Identity – Self and other ● Gender roles ● Finding meaning ● Issues of power ● Infidelity ● Sexual addiction ● Relationship / Family issues ● Race and cultural identity ● Personal development and growth ● Bereavement and loss ● Life transitions
