About Me

Looking for a therapist can be a daunting experience and the relationship between client and therapist is truly unlike any other. It is therefore essential that you find someone with whom you can feel safe with and if you’re visiting my page, it is likely that you are looking to embark on a therapeutic journey.

As children, we were raised with a set of standards and beliefs, as well as patterns of behaviour that we have taken and made our own, depending on our environment. Significant relationships, or the lack of, throughout life, can impact our core sense of who we are. What patterns have you followed so far? Perhaps these patterns have served you well in the past, in order to survive but they have become restrictive in your adult life.

I believe every story is unique, so when it comes to therapy, I don’t believe one size fits all. This is why I chose to be trained in Integrative Psychotherapy.

I work relationally and draw on several therapeutic approaches such as Psychodynamic, Attachment-based, Existential, Gestalt, Humanistic, Body Psychotherapies and Spirituality, depending on your presenting issues. I like to approach therapy from a mind-body relationship, in order to honour every aspect of who you are.

I strongly believe that being in this profession, we are in a privileged position to support someone’s journey. It is therefore really crucial that the therapist has taken an internal journey alongside a therapist themselves.

I cannot ask my clients to search for truths within themselves, if I am not willing to do so myself. I view relating with others as central to our sense of self and our inner understanding is highly influential in how effective we are. The therapeutic process and the developing relationship between  you as the client and I as the therapist offers a good insight into your internal world and ways of relating to yourself and others.

We can then work through some of these patterns together. In working relationally, we can find a path to healing and growth.

I am an integrative therapist and a member of BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) , with a diploma from the Minster Centre. A leading training institute in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy. I am also completing a Masters/Advanced Graduate Diploma in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy with the Minster Centre, accredited by Middlesex University.

I work in private practice seeing individuals for long term and time limited therapy. I have also worked as a therapist in different settings. My work has been with people experiencing a variety of difficulties and dissatisfaction in their daily lives.

People seek out therapy for various reasons. Perhaps you’re struggling with day to day life or you would like to explore yourself, your patterns or childhood experiences further. I provide a safe space in order for us to start a journey together. In working through these issues, we could explore and create a new path together.
