About this Service

Hello, I am a BACP accredited therapist in the UK with over ten years experience as an integrative therapist and over twenty years of experience working within mental health settings. My experience has enabled me to work with people who have presented with a wide range of mental health issues and life challenges including anxiety, trauma, abuse, loss, issues around sexuality, gender identity and adjustment to significant life events e.g. career change, ending of a relationship or role change. I work in a compassionate, encouraging and non-judgmental way and believe that a strong therapeutic relationship is the necessary foundation for people to explore the issues which have brought them into therapy and for change to occur. I take a positive approach to individuality and challenging the stigma often encountered by people seeking therapeutic help.

My training to become a therapist involved developing knowledge and skills from the humanistic, psychodynamic and transpersonal therapy traditions alongside a working knowledge of cognitive behavioural therapy. Working with each individual person involves a unique combination of these elements according to need and tailoring of focus between the here-and-now or significant earlier life events. I believe in encouraging people to engage with their own reflective processes to gain meaning from their experiences and to become increasingly aware of any repeating patterns which may be having an adverse impact upon their relationships and well-being.

Thanks for reading my profile. In seeking help you have made a brave choice. Should you choose to see me, I would endeavour to create a warm, safe and supportive space for you.
