About Me

On this page I hope to give you a sense of who I am and what informs my work. 

A former Primary School teacher, I chose to train as a psychotherapist after being in therapy myself. I understand that it can take great courage to seek help and so that is where I start from when meeting clients for the first time. 

 

During my training at The Minster Centre, a leading psychotherapy training institution in London, I was regularly inspired by tutors from the body psychotherapy tradition. I remain curious about our tendency to lose our connection between our bodies and minds and so I offer an opportunity to explore reconnecting these two not-so-separate parts of ourselves. 

 

I am a keen hiker and camper, preferring to spend as much time in nature as I possibly can.  Being outside gives me a profound sense of calm and freedom. I recognise this as something that many others share and also struggle to find in the city. As such, I sometimes work outside with my clients if this is something that interests them.   

 

Qualifications, Training and Experience

 

  • Post Graduate Diploma in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy (UKCP accredited training - Level 7)

  • Diploma Integrative Counselling (BACP accredited training) 

  • Certificate in Supervision Studies

 

I have 6 years experience of working as a counsellor and psychotherapist and over 14 years experience of working 1-2-1 in the helping professions. 


As well as seeing clients in private practice, I currently work as a Specialist Mentor for students with the University of Sheffield, and between 2015-2019 managed a team of therapists working in schools with children. I have experience in short-term and long-term work in different settings including Higher Education, the NHS and the voluntary sector.
