I am a psychotherapist and group analyst and have been a therapist for nearly 30 years in many different settings. In my approach, I am interested in making connections between experiences and difficulties in the present, with events and relationships from the past. In my experience, difficulties people experience as adults can often be part of a repeated pattern. I will be curious about relationships in your life but also the way you relate to yourself and to others. This will include how it is in the therapy relationship - whether individually or group.

I am an experienced psychoanalytic psychotherapist and a BACP-accredited psychodynamic counsellor. I believe that no issue is too small nor too great to bring to therapy – if it causes you pain, you will benefit from opening up about it in the long run. I believe everyone’s internal world needs to be approached with curiosity and openness. My approach is rooted in traditional psychoanalysis but progressive and affirmative of diversity and individual expression. It is suitable for adults of all ages and backgrounds and also LGBTQ/kink and poly-friendly.

I understand that reaching out for support when facing challenging feelings and events can be difficult. I offer a safe compassionate space to start making sense of your experience at your own pace. As therapy builds a deepening self-awareness it can enable you to reframe your past, increase your resilience and make changes needed to enhance your life.

No matter what brings you to therapy, it is important. You might be finding that distressing thoughts or feelings are getting in the way. Or perhaps you experience numerous unpleasant physical symptoms. Emotional response is a normal response, but understandably, it can be unpleasant, and might feel uncertain what to do when it happens. Sometimes we all need a bit support and guidance; we don't have to deal with everything on our own, especially when it gets tough. I offer evidence-based therapies within a context of kind, supportive therapeutic relationship. I currently work for mental health organizations and in private practice.

Trauma seems to be the buzz word of the moment but, most adults have experienced a trauma of some kind during their life, which has had a major impact on how they feel or behave? I have worked with many people who appear to be experiencing existential crises (“Who am I?” “I don’t even know who I am!”) and for whom the mask has dropped after many years of appearing to function well in their lives.

At times we can struggle with our circumstances and relationships. This may result in feeling confused and overwhelmed. Traumas past and present impact upon our quality of life and coping mechanisms can fail or become unhelpful. Counselling allows some time and space to focus on your issues and it can provide insight and clarity. It's an opportunity for honest open communication, without the fear of judgement and negative repercussions. This self-exploration tends to aid growth and healing, ultimately resulting in change and acceptance. I support you rather than diagnose or label, being alongside you through life's challenges.

I'm delighted to connect with you as an HCPC registered Arts Therapist (Drama and Movement Therapist).

Over my 7 years working in mental health, I've honed an approach that feels creative, embodied, and most importantly - safe. If you feel stuck in old narratives or ready to process past trauma, I'm here to listen without judgement and companion you on your journey toward healing. My goal is to provide a warm, affirming environment where we can explore your inner world.

Thank you for looking at my profile. Perhaps you are struggling with difficult thoughts and feelings. It may be that something doesn't feel right or perhaps feels confusing, even distressing. You may feel anxious or feel that your relationships with people are challenging. Talking and thinking together with a trained counsellor is the first step to start to make sense of this. I believe that everyone has the capacity to create change, and while counselling cannot remove your experiences, it can empower you to understand them better.
