About

I'm a relational integrative therapist meaning, the relationship is the therapy. It also means I use different types of therapy to meet your needs because, you are unique. Integrative therapy helps you become a more integrated whole person, better able to experience the entire range of your behaviour, emotions and thoughts as well as improving your relationship with yourself and others. Neuroplasticity continues throughout the lifespan which means that change and improvement in the way we feel is always possible and therapy is the best way to achieve this.
Attachment, the theory at the heart of my practice, describes how we relate to ourselves, others and the world. We develop our attachment style in the first four years of life through the responses of our parents to our emotional and material needs. Working with the feelings which still shape us from that phase of our development can be truly healing.
Years ago, I made the decision to put people at the very centre of what I do for a living by becoming a therapist, and it has been the best choice I ever made. Helping people feel better is beautiful work, I love what I do and feel very grateful for it, having seen therapy facilitate lasting healing change in both my clients and myself.
