Thank you for clicking on my page. Over the past 7 years I have had the pleasure of working with many different clients both children, adults and couples alongside building Next Step Psychotherapy and Wellbeing.
I am a professionally qualified psychotherapist, clinical supervisor and trainer. Established in private practice in 2013. My knowledge and skills have developed through my psychotherapeutic work in private practice,
I am trained in the Psychodynamic Approach, I felt this orientation resonated with me, as I really do believe we have to look back to be able to move forward. The Psychodynamic Approach allows you to look at your behaviour and feelings as adults and how they may have been rooted in our childhood experiences. When studying I learned some theories that were very enlightening, which I see clients find useful throughout the therapeutic process, I will therefore share this knowledge with you where it would be helpful, to enable you to develop tools to use in everyday life beyond therapy.
Prior to this work, I worked in financial services, here I found customers would come for financial advice, and whilst I would always be happy to help them with this, we ended up talking about their life, their experiences, this is when I truly realised I needed a change in career.
I believe that there is always something new to learn working in this field & make a regular commitment to on-going professional development and clinical supervision. I believe I'm very approachable & able to communicate on all levels. Taking the first step to contact can sometimes be the hardest.
