About

My clients are as diverse as the world in which we live and I endeavour to be culturally aware within my practice. I specialise within anxiety, mood disorders, and spiritual growth. My areas of work include depression, stress, bereavement and grief, anxiety, panic, phobias, self-esteem, self-worth, confidence, body image, eating disorders, suicidality and self-harming behaviours, family and relationship issues, trauma, and abuse (not an exhaustive list). The unique nature of therapy means that it can be time-limited or may be open-ended, it may be goal orientated or more flexibly experienced, we will work together to decide.
I am an integrative counselling psychologist, I am therapeutically trained in several disciplines including Psychodynamic theory, Person-Centred Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, and Existential Psychotherapy. I draw upon each of these theories in order to create a therapeutic experience that is unique to the client’s individual needs.
I am an experienced counselling psychologist, providing a safe, non-judgmental & confidential space to help you to feel better. Therapy can be the start of a new life & new way of being in the world; it is my honour to share that transition with you.
