About Me

So that you can decide if I am the right therapist for you, below is some information about how I work.

I work in an integrative way. This means that I bring in various theories and approaches within my work.I have worked with charities that help adults and children who have incurred childhood trauma. I also work with fostering and adoption agencies, supporting the child or the parents/carers directly.

I am fully qualified to work with both adults and children (aged 11+) and hold an enhanced DBS.

Building safety and trust to create space for healing

I work in a trauma-informed way, we will consider stability, and emotional regulation, in order to bring about feelings of safety within our work.

As a therapist, I fully understand that you may not instantly feel ready, or safe enough, to talk about your deeper thoughts, feelings and fears. It takes time to feel safe enough to do this, forming our therapeutic relationship is key to our work which will be based on trust, empathy and respect.  In time, this will hopefully allow you to feel safe enough to share your feelings, explore your emotions and process your thoughts, in a way that you may not have been able to do before. 

Your journey, your voice, your space.

You are the expert guide of your journey, my aim is to provide the space you need, where you can talk freely without the fear of being judged and where you can feel truly seen and heard.

I am a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and abide by their ethical framework. I also have full professional indemnity insurance and undertake regular clinical supervision.

If you would like to explore working together further, please contact me so that we can arrange a phone call, to see if I am the right therapist for you.
