My core training and approach in psychotherapy and counselling is integrative. This incorporates three main approaches; person-centred, existential and psychodynamic. As an integrative psychotherapist, this enables me to tailor the therapy to a person’s individual need and in a way that would be most valuable. 

I have also completed additional training in Person-Centred Experiential Counselling for Depression, which is recommended by the National Institute in Clinical Excellence (NICE) as an evidence-based treatment for depression. This way of working is very much emotion focused and extremely helpful for women who supress or have difficulties expressing their emotions. Additionally, I have integrated cognitive behavioural (CBT) strategies and techniques into my work which is helpful in gaining relief from troubling symptoms such as anxiety.

My work with women encompasses a wide range of difficulties. Here are some of the gender specific, environmental and or psychosocial issues that I work with:
