I am a qualified and registered psychotherapist with experience working within the charity sector and in private practice. I have worked with children and families for many years which has given me a thorough understanding of childhood experiences and how they carry through into adult life. Through this I have developed true empathy and understanding of the struggles and overwhelming feelings one has when thinking about their past and present life experiences, thoughts, and feelings. I have helped my clients gain greater understanding of themselves, identify the past and present links, and enabled them to make sense of them, and work with them in the present moment. 

Psychotherapy with Imogen

As an integrative therapist I believe we are all unique, I am committed to finding the therapeutic approach that works best for you and your individual needs. I have worked and continue to work with clients from all walks of life and provide a safe, non-judgemental space to explore what might be troubling you. 

I will work with you to create a strong and supportive therapeutic relationship that will help you make the most of your therapy journey. I am here for you and your wellbeing, and humour, creativity, and sensitivity will be central pillars of our work together. 

Starting therapy can be a daunting experience but essentially one that you may find rewarding and fulfilling. I offer a warm and trusting environment to help you feel comfortable expressing what’s on your mind. I know how unpredictable and confusing life can be, as we move through life we can face many different challenges. You don’t need to go through this alone, whether it’s anxiety, heartbreak, or the overwhelming weight of life’s changes, there is a path forward.  I am here to walk with you and help you build the tools and strength you need to create a life of healing and possibilities. Let’s start that journey together.
