I came to study psychology and psychotherapy at postgraduate level from an academic background firmly rooted in the humanities.  

Throughout my studies there has been a constant interest: people, our motivations and our struggles.  My background and training enable me to draw upon insights from philosophy, psychology, and mindfulness.  In bringing these together, I approach the challenges any of us may experience as difficulties of life and living, rather than pathologised problems.

As someone who not only seeks to practice what she preaches, and believes in taking her own medicine, I have never stopped studying.  I regularly participate in Continuing Professional Development activities relevant to my current practice.  I seek to bring my learnings into the therapy room integrating attachment theory, neurobiology, and mindfulness based approaches with cognitive, analytic, and contemporary relational psychodynamic theory.  This website seeks to reflect my clinical practice which is dynamic and interactive.
