I am an Integrative psychotherapist which means I draw from a number of different theoretical approaches depending on the person and the issue they are experiencing.

 

Counselling and Psychotherapy overlap - counselling tends to be shorter term and not to the emotional depth of psychotherapy. But they do overlap particularly in the therapist's role of providing emotional support for the client.

I trained at the Centre for Counselling and Psychotherapy Education which teaches several different psychotherapy approaches across life stages, whilst strongly emphasizing spirituality.​

 

Jung and his work drew me to psychotherapy. I find him hugely inspirational and far easier to relate to than Freud. I love his emphasis on dreams and their meanings.

 

I've had a lifelong interest in what makes us do the things we do and studied to be a psychologist before training in psychotherapy.

 

​If you came to me for psychotherapy, I’d start with an initial consultation to understand what you want to gain from therapy. We'd talk through how therapy will help you achieve it. I would also ask you about the background to your issues plus information about your family, because the family is where we learned to behave and interact with other people, and learned how to disagree with them. In that first therapy session, I would probably ask lots of questions but after that the balance would shift so you would do more of the talking. At the sixth session we would talk through progress and agree whether to continue to longer term therapy.

 

​I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (a Professional body for psychotherapists) and the British Infertility Counsellors Association. This means I uphold the ethical practices of both organisations.
