My Methods

Welcome and thank you for visiting my profile. Hopefully this might be the first step for you
in dealing with whatever may be troubling you. It is not easy finding the right therapist and making that initial contact but the sort of relationship that can emerge can be very fruitful & rewarding.

We are all confronted from time to time with issues or difficulties which we cannot resolve on our own. We may not wish to worry or burden friends & family and so coming to see a therapist in a friendly, safe space can be of enormous help. I see it as my role to listen, work with you on whatever you bring and encourage you to think about new perspectives which, in turn, could help you to see things in a different and hopefully more positive way.

I work with adults (over 18) on a one-to-one basis. Sometimes the work can be short term, focussing on a particular issue. However, there are occasions when our work together requires a somewhat longer period of time. We conclude our work when you as the client feel ready to do so.

In our first session we’ll explore the issues which have brought you to therapy as well as your hopes and expectations of the process. It’s also a chance for me to answer any questions you may have. If, at the end of the session, you decide that you would like us to work together, we can then make arrangements for our future work.

It’s my role to create a safe space, somewhere where we can both reflect on what takes place between us in a non-judgemental way; a space where we allow the emerging of new perspectives, new ways of thinking on whatever you may bring to the session. I know from my own experience that therapy can help unblock unhelpful thought patterns and assist us to move forward. As an integrative psychotherapist trained in a number of approaches, I draw upon these in our work.

If you would like to arrange an initial session, please feel free to email me at

Welcome, and thank you for visiting my website. Hopefully this might be the first step for you in dealing with whatever may be troubling you. It might also be the start of a process of self-discovery; the chance to explore aspects of your life which perhaps rarely get much attention.

It’s not easy finding the right therapist and making that initial contact but the sort of relationship that can emerge can be both fruitful and rewarding. We are all confronted from time to time with issues or difficulties which we struggle to resolve on our own. We often don’t want to worry or burden friends and family and so coming to see a therapist in a friendly, safe space can be of considerable help.

Working Together

About Me

I have a degree in Modern Languages and a Post Graduate Certificate in Education. After starting my teaching career in schools, I then worked in a large Sixth Form College for many years where I had a number of roles including a 4-year period as Assistant Principal.

My real passion though was working with individual students struggling to stay in education and in my final few years there I was responsible for safeguarding students, managing the counselling service and then I created the innovative post of Mental Health Officer, focussing on students whose mental health difficulties threatened their progress in education. I have had much experience working alongside mental health services (CAMHS), GPs and other organisations such as MIND. Much of my early psychotherapeutic experience was with adolescents before working primarily with adults.

I completed a Foundation in Counselling & Psychotherapy at Regent’s College and then completed a master’s degree (MA) in Integrative Counselling & Psychotherapy at Roehampton University. I have since undertaken further training, e.g. Relational CBT. I am a registered member of the BACP and adhere to their Ethical Framework.

My approach to counselling/psychotherapy is integrative; my training covered a number of therapeutic modalities; person-centred, existential & psychodynamic. My whole approach to my work is also influenced by some eastern philosophies and I meditate regularly. My life experiences have helped develop a deep interest in issues around identity and difference. I have much experience of working with LGBT issues. I speak German and French and, whilst I do not offer therapy in these languages, I do find it helps those clients whose first languages are French or German to encourage them to express themselves in their first language when they are having difficulty getting across a word or idea in English.
