I am a psychotherapist in training. I provide a non-judgemental and accepting environment in which to explore your concerns and I work at developing a trusting connection between us. We can attend to your pains and challenges as well your hopes and aspirations and I can support you to develop your relationship with yourself so that you have more awareness and choice.
In a session we may reflect on thoughts, feelings and bodily sensations and in addition to talking we may use other creative methods when this is helpful.
My other experience includes being a support worker for people in recovery from addiction, a care worker for older people, and a volunteer befriender. I have also worked in academic research in health and social care.
I am training at the Metanoia Institute on its UKCP-accredited integrative psychotherapy programme. I have also attended additional trainings, including on Working with Relationship Diversity and Working with Sexual Diversity. I am a student member of BACP and work in accordance with the BACP Ethical Framework.
