My approach and experience

My approach is humanistic and relational and central to this is the view that self-awareness is key to psychological health, healing and wellbeing. I’m trained as an integrative psychotherapist which means I hold a holistic perspective and draw on ideas from different schools of thought – in particular from Gestalt, existential psychotherapy, psychodynamics, mindfulness. I work in a flexible way, tailoring how I work in response to each individual.

I offer a non-judgmental, focused and supportive space where you’ll be listened to and encouraged to pause, self-reflect and look beneath the surface; to discover more about yourself and find your strengths. I’ll support and challenge you to look with interest and compassion (not self-criticism) into who you are, how you think about yourself and why you do what you do. This process helps you develop deeper self-understanding and emotional resilience and to become clearer about whatever is troubling you, thus enabling you to move forward and find your best path ahead.

I’m experienced in working with a wide range of concerns. I’m particularly skilled and experienced in working with issues related to bereavements and loss. This includes working with those who have suffered a traumatic bereavement such as a suicide, accident or death of a child. I have an especial interest in this field. Please see my website for more details.

I offer both short-term (6–8 sessions) and long-term, ongoing work.
