Psychotherapy provides a place to talk, a sacred space for the soul where you can be yourself.
  • you are facing a particular struggle;
  • are suffering from anxiety or depression;
  • are feeling distress about the ecological crisis;
  • have been bereaved;
  • have lost a sense of meaning;
  • have a feeling that life feels difficult;
  • have a feeling that there is something wrong with you;
therapy can help.

I am experienced working with people who are seeking support.

I offer a soulful, compassionate space where you can explore whatever difficulties you are currently facing and feel listened to, supported and heard.

I offer an approach that is flexible and creative, drawing on story, myth, art work, dreams, images, archetypes, somatic work and the ‘more than human’. I am interested in life transitions and behaviours that inhibit a capacity to live authentically.

Psychotherapy can make a difference to your quality of life and relationships.

About me

My qualifications

I am qualified with a Diploma in Integrative Transpersonal Psychotherapy from Re-Vision, a training organisation that specialises in offering counselling and psychotherapy services with a soulful perspective.

I am a member of the UKCP and follow their code of ethical guidelines. I have regular supervision.

I recognise the distress and wounds to the soul caused by living in a culture that has become disconnected, creating crises racially, ecologically, socially and in emotional well being.

Re-connecting to feelings, attending to emotional wounds, recognising and attending to feelings held in the body can enable richer connections and more authenticity.

My experience

I have worked with adult clients of all ages, at different stages of their lives and each facing their own unique challenges.

Humans are relational beings and it can be transforming to find a place to be yourself and find someone who will listen and think with you.

The people I have seen have brought their own unique story, many have found that their lives have become 'stuck'; the old patterns and behaviours no longer make sense. Some have had a specific problem that they want to find clarity with, whilst others are interested in longer term work to find a deeper understanding of themselves.

My approach

I offer a relational, integrative approach that draws on different models and theories such as Jungian ideas, mindfulness, gestalt, archetypal psychology, child development theory, attachment theory, neuroscience, somatic work and eco-psychology. I am interested in the images you bring and will pay attention to your dreams and the messages held in your body. I will tailor my approach to suit your particular needs.

I work from my home in Painswick, which is within easy reach of Stroud, Cheltenham and Gloucester with parking available. I also offer some online spaces.

What is psychotherapy?

Psychotherapy offers a therapeutic space that allows you to make a commitment to yourself. I work with people who are committed to making a change, who want to find a more fulfilling way of living their life and are able to make a commitment to meet once a week, or more, for a 50 minute session.

You can bring whatever you feel the need to bring, from current events in your life, whatever is on your mind or issues that need to be looked at from the past. Wounds that are unattended from the past can impact the capacity to live authentically in the present.

Psychotherapy can be a place to be silent and have time for yourself, undisturbed by the other aspects of your life.

Some of the benefits of psychotherapy:

  • Psychotherapy can bring clarity;
  • Can help you in your relationships;
  • Validates your experience;
  • Helps you find your authentic voice;
  • Supports you to find greater self understanding and compassion

Session information


Initial contact and introductory session

Please contact me if you wish to ask anything about psychotherapy in general, or have any questions about working with me. You can call for a brief chat or pay for an initial 50 minute session.

If you contact me I will usually respond within 1 or 2 days. If you decide to have an initial 50 minute session we will set a date and time for this meeting which will usually be within a few days.

Therapy is relational and what arises between therapist and client is important information for the work. In the first session we can get a sense of whether we would be able to work together. We can explore any questions you may have and think about what has brought you for therapy. Following the session you can take some time to reflect on whether sessions with me would be right for you.

If we decide that we can continue working together, we will then establish a contract for working together that will establish boundaries to support our work together, relating to fees, cancellations and confidentiality.


Confidentiality is very important for our work together. The only circumstances in which I would break confidentiality would be if I believed you or someone else was at risk of harm. I would usually seek to discuss this with you before talking to somebody else who could make a helpful intervention.

As part of my practice and in accordance with the UKCP I have regular supervision with another practitioner. These sessions are covered by strict confidentiality guidelines and clients are kept anonymous.


My fee is £60 for the weekly 50 minute session. I have a few spaces at a lower cost, please enquire.
