I am a UKCP accredited Core Process Pyschotherapist. I work with individuals and couples across all age groups. As a graduate of the Karuna Institute I offer both short term and longer in-depth psychotherapy.

I practise according to the ethical frameworks as defined by BACP, UKCP and Karuna Institute. These provide strict guidelines on confidentiality and competent practice through professional supervision and continuing professional development (CPD).

I have over 20 years experience of working with couples and individuals. My initial training was with Relate as a Couple Counsellor where I qualified as a Relate Certified Counsellor. I worked for Relate for many years before establishing my private practice. I then did a 4½ year post graduate training in Core Process Psychotherapy with The Karuna Institute. After graduation there was a further 2 years of training and practice for UKCP Accreditation. I hold a BA in Psychology.

I have worked with a number of Employee Assistance Programme Providers (EAPs) usually in the context of Ocupational Health Service schemes.

I use a gentle body-oriented approach to my work, drawing on different aspects of my background to suit each individual client. My work is based on the premise of respect and compassion for each person and trust that what naturally arises in the work is what needs attention. I believe that we all have inherent health and wisdom and feel that one of my roles is to support others to access this wellbeing in their own way and within their own beliefs.
