I am a Hampshire based Psychodynamic Psychotherapist and Family and Systemic Psychotherapist specialising in Trauma Therapy and EMDR.

I offer therapy to individuals, couples and families. I am committed to providing a safe and respectful space where clients can talk about their difficulties and where they can be supported to find solutions that fit with their beliefs and values.

My approach is flexible and person-centred, meaning that I see every client as a unique individual who is able to find their own solutions based on their unique experiences and circumstances. I adhere to NICE guidelines and treatment protocols whilst honouring the importance of the therapeutic relationship as a vehicle for

transformation and change.

I work collaboratively with my clients, acknowledging and respecting their diversity of culture, religion, gender, sexual orientation, life experience and family background.

I am committed to safe and professionally accountable practice. I adhere to the ethics and standards of my professional body, the UKCP (United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy) which requires regular supervision and ongoing professional and personal development through attendance at regular training.

I have been a practicing Psychotherapist working in the NHS and in private practice

for more than 20 years.
I initially trained as a nurse and later as a health visitor. Whilst working in the community with parents and young children, I developed an interest in working therapeutically with mothers with post-natal depression. This interest led me to train as a Psychodynamic Psychotherapist. Once qualified in this field, I initially worked in independent practice and then in CAMHS (Child and Adolescent Mental Health), specialising in working with fostered and adopted children and their families.
In recent years, I have undertaken training in the fields of Family Therapy and Trauma. I commenced training in Family and Systemic Psychotherapy at the Tavistock and Portman Foundation Trust in 2008 and qualified as a Family and Systemic Psychotherapist in 2012.
I have also completed training in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing).
I now work in private practice where I specialise in working in the fields of individual therapy (including trauma therapy and psychodynamic psychotherapy), couples therapy and family therapy.
