About

I believe that we all have an innate capacity to grow and change, and that sometimes we need to explore our personal stories to get this moving again. As children we make decisions about ourselves based on our environment; sometimes these beliefs and decisions are unkind and can leave us feeling stuck, depressed or not "good enough". Therapy helps to update these beliefs, letting go of what isn't (and may never have been) ours to carry. I have worked extensively with depression, anxiety, trauma and abuse. I currently also practice as a group therapist in an addiction service. I am BACP & UKCP registered.
As an integrative therapist I combine a number of therapeutic modalities to tailor therapy to you. I value the unconscious process and believe that working creatively has therapeutic benefits, particulary for those experiences which may feel unspeakable or hard to reach. My clinical experience spans NHS primary care, the charity sector and private practice.
I understand that life can sometimes be hard, and that taking a risk and reaching out can feel scary. If you are nervous or unsure and feel like you would benefit from an informal call or email before we meet, to discuss my ways of working or to ask any questions, I am happy for you to get in touch.
