About

If you’re feeling spun out or wrung out from anxiety, stress, depression, trauma and its related emotions and problems you’ve come to the right place. You may be looking for a safe space to talk things through, or practical strategies to discover and reach your life goals or address a specific problem. You may be unsure about what brings you to therapy, but know in your body that it's time to start dealing with some of the discomfort and distress that's disrupting your enjoyment of life. You've already shown up with a sense of curiosity and courage by reading this, so why not take another step on the journey and schedule a session?
I am a BABCP accredited Cognitive Behavioural Therapist. Unusually, my CBT approach is evidence based but relationship focused, trauma-informed and attachment aware. I am sceptical of diagnostic labels and work with the whole person not just symptom reduction: I am interested in what happened to you, not what’s wrong with you.
I am not a “blank-screen”, silent therapist; I do therapy with you, not to you, and we work together in partnership. I will do my best to welcome you into the work by offering a warm, playful, consistent, supportive, honest, thoughtful boundaried, experience of therapy. I look forward to co-creating and holding space with you (including the awkward bits!)
