About me

I work using an integrative approach, which means that I am trained in a wide range of therapies and models including CBT, ACT, Mindfulness, Narrative Therapy, Systemic, Psychodynamic, and Attachment-based approaches. I adhere to the highest professional and ethical standards, am registered with the Health Care Professionals Council (HCPC), I am chartered with the British Psychological Society (BPS) and I hold an Enhanced DBS certificate.

“I strongly believe that each person has their own inner resources; however life’s stresses and challenges can sometimes leave these hidden from you. Psychology isn’t about telling you what to do but is more about helping you discover your own answers in a safe, supportive, and nurturing space that is informed by the best evidence-based psychological therapies and practice.”

Working with Adults
I specialise in supporting women with their health and well being. I believe that having a therapeutic space is helpful for everyone, no matter how big or small they feel the challenges they face are. Therapy can even be helpful when you are feeling good but want support with finding focus or learning more about yourself. In the same way that we might go to the gym or for a run to look after our body and mind, therapy can be another avenue by which we can look after our mind and body.

Here are some examples of the challenges I am able to support with: anxiety, depression, trauma, low confidence, self-esteem, resilience, perfectionism, fear of failure, self-sabotage, grief and loss, loss of identity, work stress/ bullying/ burn out, relationship difficulties, transitions, divorce, co-parenting, blended families and supporting people with physical health conditions.

I also specialise in supporting parents and parents to be in the perinatal journey, from pre-pregnancy to pregnancy, birth, and the early years.

Working with Children and Adolescents
Therapy offers children, adolescents, and their families a space to think and to untangle difficulties. It provides a space to develop and share understanding, be heard, and nurture communication and relationships. In my experience, I have found that members of a family often share similar values and intentions but the stresses of both every day and extraordinary circumstances can lead these intentions to become ‘lost in translation’ between one another. Therapy can be a space to reconnect.

Here are some examples of the challenges I am able to support with: difficulties such as worries (anxiety), mood difficulties, low mood (depression), challenging behaviour, low self-esteem, relationship difficulties, bullying, sibling rivalry, transitions and grief. I can support with other early years challenges such as sleep, weaning, feeding, toileting, behaviour, transitions and the arrival of a new sibling.

I also specialise in supporting children and families facing physical health conditions including oncology, immunology, rheumatology, cardiac conditions and musculoskeletal conditions, other life long or life limiting conditions and health conditions that are biopsychosocial in origin such as chronic pain conditions.
