About Me

I am a Relational Transactional Analyst (TA) Psychotherapist, Counsellor, and Supervisor PTSTA (P), and I am an Accredited clinical member of the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapists (UKCP), and a clinical member registered with the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy, MBACP. 

I have extensive experience in working with individuals, couples and groups with a diversity of clinical presentations from anxiety and depression, to low confidence and self esteem, symptoms of chronic stress, bereavement and loss. and symptoms of trauma, including PTSD and complex PTSD.

Sometimes in life things can get overwhelming. Perhaps you’ve suffered from loss, a bereavement, or even a betrayal or the ending of a relationship? Do you feel stuck, anxious or low, and craving to feel better about yourself? Do you feel demotivated and unsatisfied with the general direction in your life or job? Perhaps a change in life is impacting you in a way you didn’t expect?

Stressful events including loss, can impact everyone in different ways, and our ability to bounce-back can be hampered for many reasons. Negative feelings can arise after stressful events, and lead to feeling low, to ruminative thinking, anxiety or depression and more. Stress can also cause anger and overwhelm, especially following the stress of the many global challenges occurring, including the Covid-19 pandemic.

Balanced emotional states can become disrupted by stress and painful events, and the need for 'self-regulating' behaviour means that unconscious changes to behaviour can occur, sometimes meaning that negative choices or patterns reoccur again and again, simply because you feel overwhelmed or out of control. Because of this, many people turn to therapy for unbiased support and a 'new way forwards' - for a safe, confidential, space to process the past and regain a sense of self. 

How do I work?

I work with my clients both short-term and long-term using a variety of approaches integrated to suit the individual. This way of working has helped many clients to come to terms with the past and move through ‘blocks’ and traumas, and feel more grounded and empowered.

Using relational transactional analysis, which means focussing on the 'therapeutic relationship' and internal and external transactions that emerge between myself and my clients, as well as mindfulness based cognitive therapy skills, body awareness, creative writing, and sometimes positive psychology and coaching, I help my clients to empower themselves and generate self-compassion whilst transforming their quality of life, work, and relationships.

Often I work with the deep unconscious processes that impact us all meaning this can be ‘out of our awareness’, as well as working cognitively. I like to equip my clients with practical take-home tools to use in every day life situations. 

What are my areas of expertise?

I have helped clients with loss and bereavement, the impact of suicide, depression, grief, anxiety, overwhelm, low self-esteem, workplace issues and career transitions, as well as fertility issues, sex and sexuality, identity issues, major depressive disorder, mood swings, trauma and generally feeling stuck. 

How long are sessions?

Session are all 50 minutes. Whatever the particular issue is, I offer a free initial 20-minute phone call where we can discuss your challenges in a confidential space and you can see if you like my style.  I will then offer you a 50-minute appointment where we can go over a full assessment, and decide if working with each other is right.

I usually work with all clients for several sessions before deciding to work longer-term and there is no obligation to continue if the fit is not right. 

Who do I work with?

I can work with individuals, couples, and groups on a short-term and medium-term basis (six -12 - 24 weeks) and long-term (open-ended) offering Psychotherapy and Psychotherapeutic Counselling sessions in person or via an encrypted video-call. Together, we can work at a pace that suits you, to help feel good about yourself and thriving in your life.

If there’s something you’d like to ask me in confidence, or discuss, email me or call on 07983 248 558.
