I am a highly experienced Psychotherapist and Supervisor working in private practice. I offer a humanistic based but eclectic approach to psychotherapy in a comfortable and safe practice situated in central St Ives, Cambridgeshire.
I have a Masters degree in Counselling Psychology (UKZN, 1999) in South Africa where I worked across a number of settings and in private practice. In the UK I am a Member of the BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy) and am bound by their ethical framework.

Finding a psychotherapist and starting therapy can be difficult. This is a process that should be directed by you and you should feel in control.
I believe that the core therapeutic relationship is of the utmost importance. This means providing an emotionally safe and confidential place to explore your thoughts, feelings and experiences.
The duration and content of therapy is determined by the client
“Nothing can bring you peace but yourself.” ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
How Can I Help You ?
I draw mostly from Person Centred, Humanistic and Existential therapies and believe in non-judgemental, emotionally safe and in depth counselling .
I have a special clinical interest in the formation and effects of ANXIETY across all ages.
Anxiety is a human emotion that is my area of professional interest both on an everyday level and within the context of an anxiety disorder, co-morbid mental health condition or health condition.
