I have been a practicing therapist for eight years, working in a variety of settings in long and short-term therapy, the charity sector and private practice. My initial 10-year career in media was interrupted for a long break to raise children.
I integrate existential, phenomenological and psychoanalytic ideas into my work. What this means to me is that I see each individual as unique and multifaceted, without reference to categories or labels. I see therapy as exploring here and now possibilities for coping and for improving lives through considering the experience of a life crisis, problem, or confusion, with an awareness of past experiences that may still resonate within us.
I offer in person, online and telephone sessions. I also offer supervision to counsellors and psychotherapists.
