My background is in education and the arts. I have always been interested in what lies beneath our words and deeds and how we discover who we are through our relationships. Retraining as a psychotherapist allowed me to harness my creativity and to further my understanding of how we individually make sense of ourselves and the world around us.

As an integrative psychotherapist I am able to utilise a range of different theories and approaches to my work, tailoring my responses to your individual needs. Therapy offers a space to explore what is causing you pain and difficulty within a safe, non-judgemental environment. I believe in working together, with you, to listen to your story and to explore your history and relationships, your culture and unique experiences. Working collaboratively we will work to illuminate patterns of thinking, feeling and behaviour that might be impacting you in the present. I believe that the capacity for change lies within the therapeutic relationship.

I completed my five years Master’s Degree in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy at Metanoia Institute. I am a Registered Member of the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) a leading professional body for psychotherapy in the UK. I have several years experience working within NHS Primary Care where I worked with a range of patients referred to our service by GPs. I have worked with local low-cost charities where long term work afforded people the time and space to explore themselves and their problems in more depth. I abide by the UKCP and Metanoia Code of Ethics.
