Are you feeling anxious, depressed, or overwhelmed? I hope I can help. I am a Psychotherapist and Counsellor working with young people and adults. I use Psychodynamic Theory, Internal Family Systems (IFS) and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) approaches in may pratice. I have a wealth of experience working with anxiety, depression, family issues, self esteem, identity, loss and trauma. My areas of special interest include neurodiversity, sexuality, and gender.
Do you need help making sense of things, or managing difficult symptoms? Every person's journey through therapy is unique. Some people come to therapy because they have specific issues that they want to address, others to find out more about themselves or explore that nagging feeling something is not right. I work with a non-judgemental and open mindset, and have an LGBTQ+ affirmative approach, respecting every individual's chosen identity as equal and valid.
Therapy is a collaborative undertaking, the therapeutic relationship is at its core. My theoretical approach is broadly psychodynamic and informed by these principles. We have a rich unconscious world that exists just out of awareness and influences much of what we do. I work with you to bring this into awareness. Difficulties in current relationships can often be understood through recognising the influence of the past. I work with to facilitate deeper understanding of the self as a route to mental wellbeing.
After completing a Post Graduate diploma in Psychodynamic counselling in 2012 I have gone on to complete further trainings in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Systemic Family Theory, Creative Communication, Mentalization, Internal Family Systems (IFS) and Working Online as well as a Masters in Psychodynamic Psychotherapy.
I am a BACP and UKCP accredited Psychotherapist and a registered member of ACTO, the association for online therapists. I work with clients for short-term and long-term contracts, dependent on their needs. I work online using email, live chat, and video. I am also a qualified clinical supervisor.

I am an online Psychodynamic, IFS (Internal Family Systems) and CBT Psychotherapist. Are you feeling anxious, overwhelmed or depressed? Or do you feel like something isn't quite right. I believe we have a rich internal world just outside our awareness that influences much of what we do. I work with you to bring this into awareness, understand your parts, and help difficulties in current relationships, with others and with yourself.
Anxiety: I have a lot of experience using CBT to work with anxiety and low self esteem, and have seen great results with this.
Depression: In my psychodynamic work I am interested in how early childhood experiences effect our relationships with ourselves and with others.
Autism: I enjoy working with non-neurotypical clients, for example autistic spectrum conditions (ASC) and ADHD.
I believe everybody's chosen identity is valid and I have an LGBT affirmative approach and welcome gender questioning and gender curious clients.
I work with clients with BPD/EUPD diagnoses and symptoms.
My interests are wide ranging, my main focus is on meeting the individual in front of me and seeing how we can work together to help them with whatever they need.
