I was drawn to psychotherapy out of an interest in exploring what holds us back from living life to the full. Psychotherapy involves using our experience of the past to become aware of unhelpful ways of being that are affecting us in the present. This awareness can help bring about positive, practical and lasting change. I use an empowerment-based approach that supports clients to develop useful tools and inner resources for dealing with current and future challenges.
Psychotherapy can help with a range of issues: anxiety, low confidence, big life changes, dealing with childhood issues, work stress, loss – to name a few.
I’m a member of both MIP and UKATA, the umbrella body for practitioners using Transactional Analysis.
I have a background in project management, training, community development and volunteer management, both in the UK and overseas. For the past 10 years I’ve worked for a national charity which supports refugees to build new lives in the UK.
