If you are feeling anxious or overwhelmed, directionless, struggle with low self-esteem or self-critical thoughts, I can help. I offer a confidential, non-judgmental space for you to bring whatever difficulty is present in your life right now. My approach is empathic and supportive and my aim is to both help you utilise and develop resources to manage whatever has led you to seek therapy at this time, but also to work with you on understanding any underlying issues that may be getting in the way of you leading a richer, more rewarding life.

Welcome to my profile. There is always a good reason why people seek psychological therapy but each individual is unique in their needs, experiences or goals. Whether you are looking for symptom relief, to overcome psychological distress or past trauma, to strengthen your sense of self and form more satisfying relationships, or to otherwise explore your life experiences and gain insight into your intrapsychic world, psychological therapy is well-suited to all these diverse needs. Aspiring to psychic growth and self-actualisation are also important parameters of psychological therapy.

My clients come from a diverse range of backgrounds. Every person is an individual and therefore my counselling work will be specific to their needs. My goal is to help clients to work through their difficulties and find solutions and strategies to deal with their problems. My role is to hold up a mirror to a person, in order for them to better understand their situation and work through this in a non-judgemental, confidential and empathetic environment.

Hello and Welcome, Life has indeed become complex. Many of us are now struggling with our mental health in ways that are no longer manageable. Our past and present hurts, our unprocessed feelings have risen to the surface. We find ourselves thinking, feeling and acting in ways that do not reflect who we want to be. Some of us have Grief, Trauma or Addiction that we just can’t seem to work through. As a Senior Accredited Psychotherapist with a Master Degree and EMDR qualified, I've seen thousands come through my door, with various presenting issues and undergo genuine transformation, healing and leave with hope for the future.

I see individuals and couples with a variety of needs, ranging from deep psychological and emotional difficulties to a wish to optimize inner resources, life competencies and wellbeing. Distress may arise in response to specific life events, or more generally from difficulties in our private or professional lives. Therapy offers opportunities to be fully heard, to identify obstacles in the way of healing and growth, to generate insights and to develop new life skills. I approach my work with sensitivity to the uniqueness of each individual, and tailor my interventions to best meet their therapeutic goals and sustain positive change.

I believe psychotherapy is an opportunity to connect with your Inner-Spirit through a process of reflection and self-awareness. I have a heart-centred approach to therapy and provide a warm, safe environment essential for the healing process to unfold. I work in from an integrative approach using the methods that are suited to the individual needs of each person. By taking a Mind, Body and Soul approach to therapy I can provide a space where you can re-connect to your Inner-Self, your essence, truth, joy, compassion, and sense of aliveness. This authenticity will enables you to reconnect with your Soul Nature.

At the moment, I offer online counselling via Zoom or telephone counselling, as I feel it would be unsafe to see clients any other way. I do not have a therapy room to offer you right now and have not been tested for Covid-19, nor had it. I do have many years of experience as a therapist, am a bereavement counsellor, can address your anxieties and can help you to sleep. I also edit and write articles about psychotherapy and am on the editorial board of an online journal, Contemporary Psychotherapy. I have travelled a good deal and feel this adds to my ability to relate to different types of people. Phone for more details.

I firmly believe that we are fundamentally relational beings, ones that need security, understanding & care above all else. Real change comes not from trying to fix thinking patterns, self-concepts or the past, but in shifting relational dynamics in the here and now and finding new ways of being with another. This is what I focus on in therapy with my clients, and I draw on my background and experience in modern relational psychoanalysis, developmental theory, and in depth study of phenomenology & existential philosophy to look at what emerges and how that can inform meaningful change in your life.

Many of us, at some point, get the feeling that something about our life is not going well. We realise that we need to do something, even though we may not know exactly what steps to take or how to find help. This is where therapy, which is simply a dialogue between two people, can help. This is where our suffering can be used as the impetus and the road map to our healing. My work is grounded in Jungian ideas, centred on the activity of the unconscious. As such, it is undogmatic and non-prescriptive. It encourages creative engagement with our inner world.

I am a counsellor registered with the BACP and work with young adults (+16) / adults. My approach to therapy is integrative and as such I always try to adapt to each of my clients’ unique needs. Prior to settling down in the UK, I lived and worked in several countries which, allowed me to develop an awareness of human diversity and respect for one’s identity and beliefs. Because life adversities impact each one of us differently and because the assumptions and beliefs we hold about ourselves influence how much pain those adversities can inflict, my clients' individuality and uniqueness are always at the heart of our work.

I am a psychotherapist and supervisor and hold a master’s degree in Mindfulness Based Core Process Psychotherapy. Currently, I am also in the accreditation process for EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing). One focus of my work is exploring the space where mind and body meet. I believe they are not separate. By listening to the body, we create pathways to our current and past experiences. This interest led me to EMDR and the idea that experiences can be ‘locked’ in our bodies. EMDR a method which is effective in treating individuals who have psychological difficulties arising from traumatic experiences.
