 I am an integrative psychotherapist, using a combination of theoretical approaches that take account of you as a unique individual and your relationships and contexts. I combine relational gestalt with aspects of psychodynamic theory and understandings from neuroscience. My many years of training and experience in combination mean that I have been able to offer therapy for people with a wide range of presenting issues.

I am an accredited integrative psychotherapist (UKCP,UPCA) with an MSc in integrative psychotherapy.

My additional qualifications are: diploma in relational supervision, masters degree in social work, BSc(hons)degree in psychology and anthropology, postgraduate diploma parent infant psychotherapy, postgraduate diploma infant observation and psychoanalytic studies, foundation training group analysis. I am fully insured and registered with the ICO.

My experience includes working as a university counsellor for students and staff and as a psychotherapist in the voluntary sector. I have worked for Parent Infant Partnerships (PIPS), offering psychotherapy for parents and babies together and in therapy groups. Following my initial training in social work, I worked for many years in the NHS in child and adolescent mental health services and a specialist therapy service for looked after children and their foster carers and adoptive parents.

I regularly undertake training and attend workshops to further my skills and I am a qualified supervisor of counsellors and psychotherapists. I have experience of training psychotherapists, counsellors and related professionals.

Understanding the sociocultural context and challenging my own cultural privelege is a priority. I am committed to further training  and to working creatively and holistically with you. My practice as a psychotherapist is supported by yoga, qigong, mindfulness meditation and being in nature.
