About me

I bring warmth, wisdom, respect and honesty to my work.  I'm a humanstic psychotherapist, which means that the relationship between us will always be central. I work in an integrative way, drawing on different techniques from a range of approaches including Gestalt and formative psychology. I'm happy to talk to those interested about the theories that underpin my practice. 

I worked for many years in education and the arts, developing my passion for personal learning and creativity. I trained as a coach and facilitator before becoming interested in the deeper work of psychotherapy and counselling.  My decision to train as a psychotherapist came about as a result of my own life-challenges and from my experiences as a client, giving me a deep personal committment to what is possible through the psychotherapy relationship.

I have a Certificate in Psychotherapy and Counselling from Spectrum Therapy in London, a UKCP registered centre for humanistic psychotherapy and training (www.spectrumtherapy.co.uk.). I've also undertaken counselling training with the Iron Mill Centre in Exeter and Cruse Bereavement Care. I maintain my connection with Spectrum through supervision and continued professional development. I'm a registered member of the BACP and comply with the BACP’s Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy.
