You might be experiencing difficulties at work, in your relationships or in your relationship with yourself. You may be looking for a safe space to explore difficult thoughts and feelings, or significant events and experiences in your life. You perhaps are feeling ill at ease, or lost, not knowing who to turn to or what to do next. Psychotherapy can provide a helpful space in which to work this through.

My practice is informed and inspired by the belief that we are shaped by our historic context and circumstance, which influences the way we show up for ourselves and to the world. By exploring our past experiences, imprints and coping mechanisms, we are able to understand how they may help or limit us in our growth, relationships and in work. I hope to provide a therapeutic relationship, where collaboratively we can explore how these patterns serves or hurt us, and with greater awareness and compassion, it can provide relief from pain and open up possibilities to a life that is more full and enriching.

I'm a qualified psychotherapist with experience working with people from a broad range of backgrounds, each with their own unique challenges and life experiences. The person-centred approach is a relational and collaborative way of working together, with a focus on understanding how things are for you. When life feels challenging, it can be hard to manage or make sense of it on your own. But talking openly about your thoughts and feelings in a supportive and confidential space may help you find a way forward.

Would other people say that you’ve made a success of your life but you feel like there’s something missing? Would you like things to be different but have no idea what this would look like or where to begin? Perhaps you’ve realised that your trusted patterns of behaviour and coping strategies are no longer working for you, leaving you feeling stressed, anxious and overwhelmed. Events in our lives can leave us feeling uncertain about the future and questioning who we are and where we would like to go next. Counselling and psychotherapy offer the breathing space to make sense of your life and what you might like to be different.

I believe that every individual has the capacity to live a nourishing life and deserves to feel fulfilled. However because of past or present experiences, as well as learnt behaviour, we can find ourselves stuck with unwanted feelings, desperately wishing that partners, parents, friends or situations were different. In these moments we can feel powerless and unable to speak our truth, so it is important to have an external guide, who can help us navigate through the storm and find our voice. I am committed to helping my clients reach a place of empowerment and well-being, by becoming the best versions of themselves that they can be.

Sometimes we need help in understanding how the culmination of these factors can get in the way of being able to live life fully and with ease.

You may want a better relationship with yourself and/or those closest to you. I offer a non-judgemental space in which I can help you to explore your feelings, beliefs and patterns of behaviour.

I view therapy as a journey of healing, growth and discovery. Alongside my private practice, I work as a Clinical Psychologist and researcher in the NHS and academia, where I study the influence of trauma in childhood on adult mental health. I have training in different therapy models, and offer integrative therapy to adults, adolescents and children/parents of younger children. I am influenced by psychodynamic models of thinking, but also draw from systemic family therapy and CBT (in particular “third wave”, which connects how we think to how we feel and our relationship to our inner experiences).

Feeling overwhelmed, frustrated, anxious, worn out, depressed and stressed are just some of the many ways we might react to what is happening around us and within us. Looking for help is not a sign of defeat, not now and not ever; it should be seen as one of many ways we can look after ourselves in these trying times. If you think talking might help you to process what you are going through, then please, get in touch. During our sessions I aim to provide a safe, supportive and non-judgemental space for you to explore your issues.

Is everyone in the Psychology Today Therapy Directory a licensed therapist?

Counsellors and Psychotherapists listed in the directory are members of the main professional associations, mainly the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP). Most Psychologists in the directory are accredited members of the British Psychological Society (BPS) and/or are registered in the Health and Care Professions Council (HPCP).

Providers whose professional membership or primary credential has been verified by Psychology Today are signified by a “Verified” symbol. Given that professional memberships are not a statutory requirement for psychotherapists and counsellors in the UK, certain qualified professionals or organisations may choose not to maintain such memberships despite possessing the necessary qualifications. They may be selectively included without the “Verified” seal.

What’s the difference between a psychologist, a therapist, and a counsellor?

Counsellors, psychotherapists and psychologists can all provide counselling or talking therapy and have credentials and experience that enable them to do so in the UK. Psychologists have earned a degree in psychology and many are members of the British Psychological Society (BPS) and have completed a postgraduate qualification in a specialism. Counsellors and Psychotherapists are not required to have a psychology degree, but to belong to a professional organisation such as the BACP or UKCP, they are required to have completed a training course as well as clinical and supervision hours.

What type of therapy is right for me?

The type of therapy best suited to a particular individual depends on several factors, including their primary reason for seeking therapy, their preferred timeline (some therapy types last for a set number of sessions, while others are open-ended), and their personality and preferences—some may prefer a more structured approach. For many individuals, multiple types of therapy could provide a good fit.

How much does therapy cost?

The cost of therapy depends on a number of variables, including location and the therapist’s experience and training. On average, a therapy session in the UK could be between £30 - £60 when seeing a counsellor and £60 - £150 and up when seeing a clinical psychologist. If you have private insurance, your plan may cover some if not all of your sessions. You should contact your insurance provider to determine if they provide coverage for therapy sessions and to determine what, if any, requirements they might have in order for your sessions to be covered, such as a referral from your GP or medical specialist.

What are more affordable or low cost therapy solutions?

Many therapists offer sliding scale payments, usually on a limited number of slots, which consists in an agreement between the therapist and a client to pay a reduced rate. Therapists who provide such arrangements often consider the client's income or ability to pay, but the extent of the discount is ultimately at the therapist's discretion. Furthermore, while group therapy may have different goals and benefits compared to individual therapy, it can be a more affordable solution to address certain types of issues.

If you are struggling to access therapy due to budget constraints, you could also consider public funded mental health services. The NHS Talking therapies programme offers free of charge counselling for common mental health problems like anxiety and depression. The service is available to anyone registered with a GP, though you do not necessarily need to be referred by your GP and can refer yourself directly to a Talking therapies service. The service will provide different solutions, including group and individual therapy, for a limited number of sessions which are generally up to six.

Is online therapy cheaper than in-person therapy?

Many therapists charge the same amount for online therapy as they do for in-person therapy—though clients may still find this cost-effective if it cuts down on their transportation costs. Health insurance plans often offer equivalent coverage for online and in-person therapy; indeed, in many places, they are legally required to do so. Text-based or on-demand therapy apps may be cheaper than traditional one-on-one psychotherapy; however, the practice may be less effective and is not likely to be covered by insurance.

Is online therapy a good option?

Therapy conducted online can be just as effective as in-person therapy, as long as there is a strong alliance between the client and the therapist. To find a therapist who provides telehealth services to clients in your area, click “Online Therapy” on the directory homepage and search by your city or town or your postcode.

Are therapy sessions confidential?

Therapists who are part of a professional organisation such as the BACP, the UKCP, or BPS are bound by an ethical framework that requires them to uphold a confidentiality agreement. Confidentiality is a crucial part of the therapeutic relationship and only under specific circumstances, such as when there has been participation in a criminal act or act of terror, or if there is potential or known harm to the client or others, will a therapist be obligated to break the agreement. These exceptions to the confidentiality agreement are usually discussed during the initial consultation.
