About

I have a strong belief that people are intrinsically resilient & resourceful & that under the right therapeutic conditions, emotional suffering can be reduced & fulfilling lives, lived out. My intention is to provide a safe, hopeful space for people to explore how they would like to be in the wider world & practical ways to achieve this. Since 2014 I have worked in a variety of NHS settings, using talking therapies to support adults, children & families to navigate a range of emotional & physical health difficulties. These include: anxiety, low mood, trauma, chronic-illnesses, relationship and employment issues.
For the last 5 years I have specialised in supporting people with long-term physical health conditions, including Fibromyalgia, Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS), late effects cancer-related pain & Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS).
I work predominantly within the Acceptance and Commitment Therapy model but also draw on Compassion-based approaches, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy & Narrative Therapy. I offer individual therapy (daytime, evening & weekend availability), alongside an 8-week Compassionate Mind Training course, run at various points across the year (Sunday evenings, 5-7.30pm).
