I graduated from the Minster Centre with a Masters degree (MA) and an Advanced Diploma (Adv. Dip). I am also;
Accredited and registered with the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP)
Registered Member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP)
As an integrative therapist I hold the contributions of Psychodynamic, Humanistic and Existential Psychology, Bodywork and Transpersonal Psychology. These different approaches allow me some insight into the factors that help shape us in our development, how psychological suffering or impairment occurs and what we can do to alleviate it.
I recognise the diversity between different points of view and hold these both reflectively and critically within my own practice. I also see my practice to evolve organically through the process and interaction between client and therapist. As part of my continued professional development I regularly attend seminars and workshops throughout the year.
I am experienced in working with individuals and my clinical experience at Mind and Victim Support has allowed me to gain a particular interest in issues surrounding bereavement, abandonment, self esteem, identity, cultural issues, diversity and difference.
I have a particular interest in couples and individuals who are struggling with being new parents.
Regardless of your gender, age, religion or social standing, I am happy to help you.
If you are struggling in your relationship and need some support, get in touch.
I also offer walking & talking in the outdoors - if this interests you, please get in touch
Life as a new parent can be tough and many people struggle with the challenges presented to them.
