About the Therapist
Me, I've been out since 1980 as a bisexual woman, at a time when being bisexual was rejected by both straight and LG communities. My sense of my gender has always been of a gender fluid spirit while identifying as cisgender. I find that there is a particular alliance between the experiences of bisexual people and people who are gender diverse and some of my most rewarding work has been with people who are exploring their gender or fortifying themselves to live in a world that needs to learn better to accept gender diversity.

I have been awarded Honorary Fellowships of four professional organisations for different contributions to the profession over three decades. I'm proud that my work on the Memorandum of Understanding on Conversion Therapy was recognised by UKCP in 2021 with this honour and also with the Association of Christian Counsellors for work in support of inclusion and identity especially at the intersections of faith and sexual and gender identity.
My teachers have included some of the greats in mind-body psychotherapy such as Ernest Rossi and Stephen Gilligan.
I have been UKCP Accredited as a psychotherapist since 1993 and am qualified in two distinct modalities.
I am always updating my own learning so that I can work in a way that best suits your needs and the progress along your therapeutic journey. It is my belief that therapy is a creative process and can be enjoyable and creative as well as providing a safe space to process the most uncomfortable and distressing experiences in an empowering way.
I work within integrative framework that recognises that we are mind, body and emotion and that we need to work with our whole being to heal and grow. If appropriate, we may include applications such as learning self-hypnosis and playful tasks between sessions.
Psychotherapy is, for me, an adventure. It can be challenging, and sometimes that means working kindly to heal pain that we may have tried to numb or deny or learning to embrace parts of ourselves that we have wanted, unsuccessfully, to just get rid of. It is my belief that, working together, we can find the strengths that you can bring more purposefully to address the issues you are facing in a way that is progressive towards living more of the life that you want.
We can work together online or in-person or in combination of these according to what best supports the psychotherapy process.

My fees are for sessions of 75 - 90 minutes and are good value pro rata.
The longer session time often means that fewer sessions are required for you to begin to bring real benefit from therapy int your life.
Because I work in brief, mid-term and long-term work according to the client's needs we may need to negotiate your fee and the frequency of your attendance.
I preserve spaces in my caseload for a number of pro rata and reduced price slots. These have specific criteria attached to them and I can offer these on that basis.
