Thank you for looking at my website. Currently, my practice is full and I don’t have availability for new clients or for ongoing supervision. I’m unsure when I’ll have space to offer so I’m not holding a waiting list.


I specialise in helping people after difficult experiences. Perhaps you’re finding it hard to get over something that happened in your past and finding that it’s still impacting on your life and relationships. Maybe it was a situation that went on for some time, for example, sexual abuse, bullying or neglectful parenting, or a one-off ‘shock’ trauma, such as an assault, sudden bereavement or an accident.

For some people, unresolved experiences from the past can mean that they feel anxious, socially ill-at-ease, or depressed.  For other people, the impact may mean that they feel unsafe, jumpy, and on edge, finding it hard to concentrate. They may have difficulties trusting or being in relationship. They may experience intrusive thoughts, nightmares or flashbacks or perhaps try to avoid reminders of what happened so that their life and choices become restricted. Unresolved traumatic experiences might lead other people to feel stuck, frozen or emotionally numb.

Often people don’t connect their current challenges with events that happened in the past.

I’ve many years experience of working with people facing difficulties as well as specialist training in a range of effective therapies. My primary way of working now is an approach called Internal Family Systems or IFS. (There’s more about this on the Qualifications and Experience and How I Work sections of the website) .

My work is about releasing the burdens and healing the injuries that resulted from past experiences. My intention is to enable and support you to be able to live your life more true to who you really are.

I am flexible about appointment times. Currently, I am only working online. I am an Accredited Member of BACP and work to their ethics, meaning that my practice is responsible and accountable. A first appointment is offered at a reduced rate and is an opportunity for us to explore, with no obligation, how it would be to work together.

Do look at the rest of my webside to get a sense of who I am and how I work. If you feel that I could help you, please get in touch.

Supervision and consultation

I offer supervision and consultation to other therapists, mostly to those who are interested or trained in IFS. This is individually or in groups. I am an Approved Clinical Consultant with the IFS Institute. There are more details of my supervision/consultation work on the relevant section of this website.


I am a Lead Trainer with the IFS Institute, working in the UK and internationally. In addition, I offer training programmes and workshops, including on integrating IFS into supervision and consultation practice. Please feel free to contact me if you would like to discuss training for your organisation.
