What I do

About Me

As an established Integrative Psychotherapist with years of experience, I’ve witnessed transformative change in many individuals. I have undertaken extensive and high-quality training, and conducted research on eating disorders and the psychodynamics of unconscious processes, contributing valuable insights. Having worked across various settings and age groups and taught trainee Counsellors as a Lecturer in Mental Health and Psychological Therapies at an academic institute, I draw from this experience to provide personalized Psychotherapy tailored to your unique needs.

Initially, my intention is simple: for you to feel genuinely heard, accepted, cared for, and supported. So many navigate life without this and finding a therapist who truly understood me was a game changer, altering my life and paving the way for enriching and fulfilling growth and change.

Unlocking Transformation

The Impact of My Therapeutic Approach

Psychotherapy offers a multifaceted approach to personal growth and well-being. It promotes self-discovery, enhancing insight into thoughts, emotions, and behaviours, fostering increased self-awareness and a deeper understanding of underlying issues. Through therapeutic interventions, individuals acquire coping mechanisms, communication skills, and effective strategies to navigate challenges, equipping them with the self-awareness, compassion, and tools to manage stress, anxiety, and relationship difficulties. The therapeutic relationship provides a safe and supportive space for individuals to come to terms with trauma, express their feelings without judgment, offering emotional support that alleviates isolation and promotes connection. Additionally, psychotherapy facilitates behavioural change by identifying and modifying maladaptive behaviours, empowering individuals to work towards achieving their goals and improving overall well-being.
