Sometimes we need help to face certain problems, challenges or difficulties in life.
Psychotherapy is a talking therapy. In the non-judgemental space, it becomes possible to explore experiences and increase awareness of what’s going on for us, and our relationships with others - ultimately to live more satisfying lives, more fully in the present.
I‘m an integrative therapist with a doctorate in psychotherapy, and a broad training background in various other approaches (e.g. cognitive behavioural therapy, compassion focussed therapy, interpersonal psychotherapy).
I have extensive experience mostly in the NHS and private practice but also in the third sector.
I take an inclusive, non-pathologising view of gender and sexuality and recognise the broad range of gender, sexual, and relationship diversities (GSRD).
Even though there are many different types of psychotherapy, when looking for someone to work with, one of the most important things to help you know who to choose, is that you feel really comfortable talking to them.
I take a pluralistic perspective and appreciate a range of diverse theoretical and practical ideas. I recognise the importance of evidence-based practice as well as practice-based evidence.
Experienced therapists draw on a range of theoretical and technical ideas depending on what you’ve said you want to get out of the work.
I am registered with both the UKCP and IPTUK.
