I am a HCPC and BAAT registered Art Psychotherapist working as a psychotherapist at Sheffield Mind. I have a psychodynamic foundation with a client-centred approach, which means I tailor each session to the unique needs and goals of my clients, allowing them to lead the direction of their therapeutic journey. I believe self-expression is incredibly important for processing and healing from the challenging experiences and trauma we encounter throughout our lives.

In my practice, I use attachment theory to help clients better understand themselves and the patterns they follow in relationships. By gaining insight into these patterns, clients can learn how to support themselves better. This can help us relearn healthier coping mechanisms and become more aware of our responses and behaviours.

I provide a safe and understanding space where clients can bring anything they need to discuss, without judgement. I incorporate psychoeducation in therapy whenever appropriate, as I believe knowledge is power, and understanding the reasons behind our behaviours gives us more power to change them. My goal is to empower my clients to recognise the power within themselves to improve their mental health and thrive in life.

I have over 6 years of experience working with individuals of all ages in various settings. My experience includes working with women in rehab at Cygnet Hospital, supporting children with learning difficulties and disabilities in special educational needs schools, and working with older individuals with learning disabilities at Mencap Charity. Additionally, I have provided art therapy to Looked After Children experiencing mental health difficulties due to early abuse and trauma.

Throughout my career, I have supported clients with autism, ADHD, anxiety, depression, grief, anger, sexual abuse, eating disorders, hoarding, and self-harm. My passion for working with people and advocating for mental health led me to train as a psychotherapist in 2022. I hold an enhanced DBS certificate and professional liability insurance.
