Update from Jan ’24 – my client slots are currently full and I’m sorry but I don’t keep a waiting list. Feel free to check back in a few months. I may have space for one supervisee (for a therapist using IFS). You can look for other IFS-trained therapists here – do keep trying – IFS therapy is popular at the moment and, in my opinion, rightly so!
I hope to be human in my work as a therapist, and that you meet me as an ordinary person alongside the professional experience I’ve had. It is a privilege for me to accompany my clients on their journeys and my work is important to me. My pronouns are she/her.
I have been working as a psychotherapist in private practice for more than twenty years, and for many years now I have been mainly using Internal Family Systems (which has revolutionised the way I practice). You can read my introduction to IFS essay (with puppies) here. I also offer supervision to fellow therapists or any practitioners who work with people. I am also available for spiritual mentorship.
Qualifications and experience
I first trained as a person-centred counsellor in 2001. I subsequently completed a Buddhist psychotherapy with Amida Trust, and have been BACP accredited since 2005. I initially worked at Employee Assistance Programmes and in charities, and since 2003 I have been in private practice alongside my other work. I completed Levels 1, 2 and 3 IFS training several years ago. I have co-run a Buddhist temple with my spouse Kaspa (they/them) since 2013, and I am also a writer. My work with clients tends to be weekly or fortnightly and tends to be long-term.
My current fees are £75 for each 50 minute session. Sorry, my lower cost slots are currently full.
