I’ve always had an interest in people and the stories they share. I enjoy hearing about people’s upbringings and helping them think about how they were parented has shaped who they are today and how they relate to others. I practice using an Integrative approach, which means I integrate various tools from different approaches to therapy. These are Person-Centred, Compassion-Focused and creative including things like visualisation work and dramatherapy. My clients tell me that they feel safe, held and learn to trust me deeply. That I am patient with them but also perceptive, and gently challenge them when feels appropriate.
Training & Experience
I qualified with a Post-Graduate Diploma in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy from the University of Roehampton, and also hold an MA, BA(Hons) and my level 2 and 3 in Counselling Skills and Studies from CPCAB. Before I started my private therapy practice, I began my clinical work at a charity supporting women with mental health difficulties, and in a further education college offering counselling to students. I’m a Registered Member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists. This means I’m on a Register that has been accredited by the Professional Standards Authority. My membership number is 398302.
