I am a trainee Counselling Psychologist and Psychotherapist currently completing my doctorate at Metanoia Institute. Alongside my training I work at an academic health sciences centre working to improve the provision of psychological support for people with enduring physical health illnesses.
I am an integrative therapist so my approach is informed by a range of different theories, particularly relational, developmental, psychodynamic and humanistic therapies, alongside neuroscience and research on psychotherapy. In practice, this means I use a variety of different ideas and concepts to understand a person’s needs and tailor my approach to meet them. I will listen closely to whatever you have to say. I may ask questions, offer interpretations or a different perspective, and perhaps suggest particular tools that could be helpful.
Research emphasises the importance of the relationship between a therapist and their client, and so I value the quality of the relationship and aim to provide a safe, empathic, authentic and non-judgemental space to discuss what is important.
I am a graduate member of the British Psychological Society and a trainee member of the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy, and abide by their codes of ethics.
