  • My approach

    My approach is Humanistic and Integrative. What does this mean?

    I believe that as human beings we are all capable of making choices, creating meaning in our lives and embracing our full potential. Rather than seeing you as ‘ill’ or ‘flawed’, I will see you as a human being who has become stuck in unhelpful patterns of thinking, feeling or behaving. Your choices may no longer be clear to you, your life may have lost meaning and you may not feel that you are achieving your potential in life. This can lead to symptoms of depression, anxiety, stress and frustration.

    I offer a non-judgmental and honest therapeutic relationship, providing a careful balance of support and challenge, to enable you to explore your difficulties. My aim is not just symptom relief, but a deeper personal transformation.

    Areas of interest


    A new field within psychotherapy, ecopsychology recognises the alienation that many of us feel as a result of being disconnected from the natural world. It is this disconnection which allows us to continue to destroy our planet whilst at the same time engaging in ultimately dissatisfying behaviours. This dissatisfaction and alienation can then lead to depression, emptiness and other psychological symptoms.

    Working in an ecopsychology mindful way, I am open to listening for signs that such a process may be at work within my clients.

    Creative writing
    I am also interested in creative writing and poetry in particular as a means of expressing feelings and processing our experiences.

    Career background

    Before training as a psychotherapist, I worked for many years in a Sales and Marketing environment for a large global corporation. I, therefore, understand the culture and expectations of such an environment which can be very helpful to some of my clients.

    I have made some major life changes and am well placed to support clients who are contemplating similar life decisions.

    I am also a parent and so understand the pressures and anxieties that this role brings.
