Qualified Psychotherapist in practice with individuals since 1996. I am also a couples therapist since 2005. I am a trained Supervisor and can provide Supervision to Psychotherapists, Counsellors and others in the helping professions.
I enjoy working with individuals and couples and believe I can provide a warm, holding place for my clients to explore their lives and relationships.
I am an experienced Psychotherapist working with long term clients. My training is Humanistic, Psychoanalytic and Integrative and these theories strongly influence and underpin my work.
I believe that psychological suffering arises from difficulties in our early relationships. By providing a therapeutic relationship that is warm, accepting and authentic an environment is created where it is possible for difficulties to be understood and resolved.
My training as a Supervisor has been with the Centre for Supervision and Team Development in Bath. This training is an Integrative model which is appropriate for all theoretical approaches and meets the standards for the Directory of Approved Supervisors of UKCP.
