My approach

I have developed a flexible way of working, and am able to provide ‘talking therapy’ or embodied dramatherapeutic methods, depending on which way you would like to work.

By meeting in a safe, sincere and non-judgemental therapeutic space, I can support you in the exploration of yourself and the challenges you face. I can provide you with the room needed to understand, grow and help you to overcome your difficulties.

How can therapy help?

Life can often be difficult or seem unmanageable. One can feel overwhelmed with things happening at work and home – or sometimes, we aren’t even sure why we are feeling the way we are. Therapy can help you deal with:

  • loss and change
  • difficulties in making and sustaining relationships
  • feelings of depression, low self-esteem or feelings of being stuck
  • resolving conflict and anger more successfully
  • changing destructive patterns in life
  • developing your creative potential

Training and qualifications

Before training as a dramatherapist at the Scuola di Artiterapie in Italy I completed a degree in psychology and drama from the University of Pretoria in South Africa (2007).

I also hold a Diploma in Social Science (2010) with an emphasis on bereavement studies.

I now also work as an attachment-based psychoanalytic psychotherapist (in training at The Bowlby Centre).

Past experience

I have extensive experience working within the arts and education sectors.

More recently I have been working therapeutically with issues around bereavement, loss, relationship issues, depression, anxiety and work-related stress.

I have experience of working with eating disorders, emotional and physical abuse, and providing support to those facing addictions and homelessness. I have also run creative group therapy interventions with women in forensic settings.

Professional affiliations

I am registered with UKCP (UK Council for Psychotherapy).

I also belong to the Societa’ Professionale Italiana di Drammaterapia (SPID).

I abide by the UKCP code of ethics.
