I am a trauma informed practitioner, and am able to work sensitively with different types of trauma.  I also have experience of working with anxiety, depression, bereavement and issues from childhood.

My integrative training means that I have been trained in and can draw on a breadth of psychotherapeutic theories and approaches. I mostly draw on humanistic theories, putting my client at the centre of my work, and working with empathy to support you in healing and in growth.

I hold a Diploma in Integrative Psychotherapeutic Counselling from Metanoia Institute and have been working with clients since 2018. 

My integrative training means that I have studied a range of psychotherapy theories and approaches.  I focus on the relationship between client and therapist, and work primarily with client and person centred humanistic theories.  I work in a sensitive, trauma informed way, with awareness of linkages between mind and body, and also use neurobiology research in my understanding of clients.

I am a member of BACP, which means that I have committed to work within BACP’s ethical standards and framework, and I have met their standard for proficiency.  

I am also in the late stages of completing an MSc in Integrative Psychotherapy at Metanoia Institute, and am a trainee member of UKCP.

I bring many years of experience in a corporate environment to my practice.
