I’m a widely-experienced psychotherapist (registered with UKCP), accredited counsellor (registered with BACP), and supervisor with over 15 years experience. I’ve worked privately, for the NHS, with staff in a University setting and as a therapist for serving officers in West Midlands Police.

My therapy practice reflects my lifelong interest in health and healing and is an integration of my personal experience, along with aspects of philosophy, psychology, and clinical theory. I’m constantly developing my interest in therapy and write around clinical themes for professional journals. I bring my experience from working in education and music as well as influences from Buddhism and am generally experienced as a patient person with a sense of humour and a balanced viewpoint. I offer long and short-term therapy and personal development work to individuals.

My core modality is Gestalt, a creative, holistic approach which supports working at depth with the therapeutic relationship and embodied process and includes uncovering the influence of past and present situations on current difficulties. I’m sensitive to cultural differences and individual preferences and aim to help clients in developing enough support and awareness to grow into the choices and changes which, outside of therapy, have proved elusive.

I’ve particular interests in abuse, shame, low self-esteem, anger management, and depression but have experience in all areas.
I supervise from a pan-Humanistic perspective and have long experience with individual and group supervision for both students and qualified practitioners. I have provided Team-Building consultancy to organisations and CPD workshops for practitioners and welcome contact with regard to this.
