About me 

I am a trained Integrative Psychotherapist and Counsellor working with individuals and couples, who has worked as a psychotherapist in the charity and further/higher education sector. Prior to becoming a psychotherapist, I worked for fifteen years in education, then in addiction recovery whilst also volunteering in youth offending and probation. 

My qualifications include:

  • MSc in Integrative Psychotherapy & Counselling – Distinction level: BACP Accredited 
  • Certificate in Integrative Couple Counselling: ISPC Accredited
  • Post Graduate Diploma in Psychology: BPS Approved
  • BA Hons in Primary Education 
  • Registered member of the BACP

My belief about therapy

As an individual or as a couple we experience the world in our own unique way. I believe the approach of the therapist should be led by what the client is experiencing, who they are, and want they hope to achieve. I aim to create an environment where you feel safe to learn about yourself and your relationships and, understand and connect with thoughts and memories that are held in your mind and your body. With each new understanding and change of thought, feeling and emotion, you will connect with a greater truth about who you are and what you wish to change.

An integrative approach

Using an integrative framework, I will draw upon a range of models in our work together including Attachment, CBP and Person Centred Therapy. We may learn about the brain and how it responds to feeling overwhelmed or, the theories behind the models that help explain your thoughts and feelings.  Often it is our relationship with our ‘self’ that needs to be explored, raising our awareness of our lack of self-belief or our constant self-criticism. Together we may practice visualisation strategies focusing on self-compassion and self-respect or, mindfulness based sensory techniques to help you soothe your anxiety or sadness. Developing a toolbox of knowledge and techniques can feel empowering; it fosters resilience; the belief that our overwhelming feelings can be managed and that how we feel about our ‘self’ and our relationships can change.
