Before training at The Manchester Institute for Psychotherapy, I focused solely on my artwork after achieving my BA (Hons) in Cornwall. I’ve always had a love and passion for painting and all the dramatic mythological stories within the arts and my own unconscious. However, something was always psychologically missing for me; through the discovery of dream analysis, I began my psychotherapy journey, which changed my life for the better.
I completely understand what it is like to sit in a chair and feel vulnerable. For some phenomenal reason, sharing our vulnerability brings great strength, self-awareness and sometimes even clarity.
It’s been an honour to train and now work at The Manchester Institute for Psychotherapy. My training is within Integrative Transactional Analysis, though I do have many other areas of interest which I draw upon within my therapeutic practice. I have a great interest in Jungian analysis and dream work. I believe that the body, mind and spirit support one another, which is why I also take a more holistic approach using phenomenological inquiry. (Focusing on behaviours, words, tones of voice, body language, and other non verbal responses).
Whatever you choose to share will be held completely within a confidential and respected environment. I take a non-judgemental approach when working with my clients, and respect their individuality. I offer a safe and secure space whilst I accompany you on your journey. I will be there as a support and guide for you throughout the whole process; you will lead the way and choose when to open certain doors, and I will respect your choice when choosing to do so or not.
Face to face therapy is how I choose to work as I find it is far more rewarding, as it holds a much more potent therapeutic experience. However, I am aware times are changing. I do offer very limited times and spaces for those individuals with exceptional circumstances for online therapy.
