I have 25 years experience as a practitioner with individuals and groups:

My theoretical orientation is pluralistic psychotherapy, which is integrative and grounded in relational and psychodynamic practice. My work is guided by trauma-informed care principles and common factors research.
Another core strand of practice is ecotherapy / eARTherapy - promoting eco-creativity and a reciprocal caring relationship with the rest of nature.
What is Counselling / Psychotherapy?
"Therapy offers you a safe, confidential place to talk about your life and anything that may be confusing, painful or uncomfortable. It allows you to talk with someone who is trained to listen attentively and to help you improve things." (BACP)
