About

Having worked for the last 10 years in both the NHS and third sector, providing psychological support for people from different cultural backgrounds and life experiences, I am committed to providing a person-centred, flexible and collaborative space, that focuses on the your strengths and skills to help you overcome challenges that you are facing and work to work towards holistic wellbeing. I understand how daunting it can feel to take the initial steps towards therapy. Creating a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment where you can talk freely and openly about your experience is therefore at the core of my approach.
I am trained to provide therapy for a range of difficulties across a spectrum of severity. This includes problems related to anxiety, low self-esteem, your mood, trauma and loss. My main therapeutic approach is compassion focused therapy, however I also draw from approaches including acceptance and commitment therapy, narrative therapy and CBT.
I understand that therapy can be inaccessible, in part due to financial reasons. I offer a sliding scale of fees and please do contact me to discuss costings.
