About Me

Welcome

Finding a therapist can feel daunting - you've decided that you'd like to talk to someone, but who to choose?  I hope learning a little more about how I work will help you decide whether I might be the right fit for you.

I'm a psychotherapist and counsellor who has worked in both the NHS and private practice with a wide variety of clients.  

I am a member of the BACP and UKCP and abide by their Codes of Ethics.

I offer both brief and long-term therapy, depending on what you would like to explore.  

I am experienced working with many different issues, including: 

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Stress
  • Difficulties arising in forming relationships and intimacy
  • The effects of childhood sexual, physical and emotional abuse
  • Abusive adult relationships
  • Absent parents during childhood

 

I have also worked with people in transition, which may include:

  • becoming a parent
  • involuntary childlessness
  • adjusting to an empty nest 
  • divorce and separation
  • retirement and redundancy

 

My Approach

I describe my way of working as ‘integrative’ – which simply means that you aren’t expected to fit into any particular theoretical category. 

It’s grounded in acknowledging the importance of your earliest relationships and how the ideas you may have internalized about yourselves and carried forward into adult life, may no longer be appropriate. 

I call on a variety of ideas, suited to your particular needs, whether we focus on a current dilemma and work towards specific goals or explore past experiences in more depth – helping you to gain understanding and insight into your individual experience.

I see therapy as an opportunity to explore your potential for flexibility and change. I aim to provide a space in which you can begin to feel able to make choices about the future. 

If you have any questions or would like to arrange an initial 'no commitment' appointment, please contact me by email or phone.
