About me

Experienced UKCP psychotherapist offering both brief and long term work for individuals and couples. I aim to bring a warm, emphatic but clear thinking approach to the work thereby helping you to gain deeper insights and resolve difficult situations relating to both present and past events. Talking to a trained psychotherapist in a safe, confidential setting is a way of understanding your life and through this starting to take responsibility for making different choices.

My core training has been in Psychodynamic psychotherapy however my work draws on the strengths of many disciplines including Psychoanalytic, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), Solution Focused and Trauma/Critical Incident therapy. This enables me to bring an integrative approach to suit the individual needs. Most of my training was completed with Westminster Pastoral Foundation (WPF).More recently I have qualified as a licensed Practitioner in Understanding Your Eating, for people struggling to overcome disordered eating. This programme can be delivered individually or as a group.

My current work is divided between my private practice established in 1998 and working as a Health and Wellbeing Therapist for BUPA and a variety of Employee Assistance Programmes including Critical Incident Response. I am a part-time psychotherapist at a local hospital.
