My therapy approach is integrative and transpersonal, which means I draw on various theories and modalities to support the healing process for each person as an individual. I take a holistic perspective to the challenges we face in life and that a crisis can often be an opportunity for change and understanding ourselves more deeply. I see a soulful approach as giving value to the parts of ourselves that live closest to the unconscious, often expressed in dreams, images, physical symptoms and synchronicities. By getting to know the whole person - mind, body and spirit - we can begin to find meaning in our life's stories and purpose in our day-to-day existence. 

I am a fully qualified psychotherapist with a Postgraduate Diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy from the Centre for Counselling and Psychotherapy Education (CCPE) in London. I also hold a Master’s Degree in Social Work from the USA. I have worked in the field of mental health for over 20 years with adults, children and families and as a researcher and lecturer. I have experience as a therapist in both NHS and charity sectors. I have specialist training in trauma (including emotional, physical and sexual abuse).

I am a registered member with the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) and abide by the ethical framework established in their professional Code of Ethics. I participate in ongoing training and supervision. I am committed to offering an inclusive practice that supports all ethnicities, cultural backgrounds, religious preferences, physical abilities, sexual orientations and gender identities.
