The foundation of any therapy is the relationship with the therapist therefore choosing who you work with is an important part of the process, and the choice is wide and varied.

I am a psychodynamic integrative psychotherapist which is a bit of a mouthful!

It means in short that I have trained in a wide variety of approaches and techniques which I then integrate together around a core model to move us towards your goals. I work with adults across a wide variety of circumstances and presenting issues both in private practice as a volunteer counsellor for Together We Talk where I have worked for the last three years.

I have been told that my style is warm and open, enquiring and at times challenging. I am very real in the therapy room whilst keeping the relationship with the client and their needs at the centre. Qualifications, location, cost or expertise in particular areas usually tip the balance in favour of one therapist over another. I would add to that list a feeling of ‘good fit’, a kind of gut instinct, that we might get along OK together. Therefore, I would encourage anyone who is looking to start working with me to meet me and see if we are just that – a good fit.

I am based in the LA19 postcode and work with clients both online and in person. I am a registered member of the BACP, and of the Northern Guild of Psychotherapy (NGP) where I also completed my three years of training. More information about this can be found by following this link. Northern Guild – Accredited Training in Counselling and Psychotherapy The course included supervised clinical practice from the start and weekly personal therapy.

Before completing my training I was a full-time home educator of my three now grown up children which has given me a breadth of life experience which I bring to my practice. I also have a love of the outdoors, reading, creativity and music.
