I see therapy as a collaboration which can bring you new perspectives and freedom from long-held patterns. My aim is to provide the acceptance and compassion that you may be struggling to give to yourself, allowing you to explore your inner landscape. A true therapeutic relationship is unique because it goes beyond all the usual human judgements and allows interaction on a completely different level.
“Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing there is a field. I’ll meet you there.”
I am trained in Internal Family Systems Therapy which recognises how the hurt and protective parts of our psyche influence us daily. It is also a model which reflects my belief that we have within us the necessary qualities which bring healing and change.

I am employed part-time as a university counsellor alongside my work in private practice. I have also worked in two north-west charities with adults, and as a therapist with young people for Barnardo’s, YPAS, and in secondary school settings. I am a member of the BACP having qualified in integrative psychotherapy at postgraduate level, training which allows me to adapt my practice to suit the needs of the individual. I have a particular interest in the links between creativity and wellbeing, especially the uses of writing in therapy, and run workshops in this field.
