About Me

What brings you here today? Are you aware that things aren't great, that's something doesn't feel quite right, but you're not sure what? Or are you aware that there is an issue that's causing you difficulty and which you're just not dealing with properly? Perhaps there is something in your past that you know is having an impact, but you aren't quite sure how to deal with it on your own. 
 
I work with a lot of clients who don't have one specific 'thing'.  They just don't feel right and know, in their bones, that they could feel better. Others that I work with know exactly what they have to grapple with - whether intense anxiety, childhood trauma, or a recent loss - they know precisely the area they are coming to receive support with, 
 
In each and every case, it's my passionate belief that therapy has the power to help you heal. I truly believe that by talking, opening up and sharing the weight with someone, we can feel relieved, supported and held.  I believe everyone in the word could benefit from the sort of rich relationship of trust that's established during therapy.
I work in an integrative way, blending elements of person-centred, existential and psychodynamic theory, working in a creative way to suit your needs. In case you're not familiar with these terms, a quick summary is below: 
Person-centred: an approach which considers you the expert in your own life and in which you are met with a set of core conditions such as empathy, congruence and positive regard. 
Existential: a philosophical approach which focuses on the human condition as a whole, dealing with challenges associated with living such as relationships, freedom and responsibility and the quest to finding meaning.
Psychodynamic: this type of work aims to shine a light on the unconscious - to build awareness of what's happening as a deeper level within, helping people to know and understand themselves more fully and building awareness to bring about change. 
Coaching: My training also includes a qualification in coaching - because, as well as your past, I’m also deeply interested in your future. I want know what you want and to work with you to discover how to get there.
Starting therapy takes courage, and isn't always easy. It takes effort and a belief that you can feel better than you do now. I've been there and know how much it takes. From day one though, the rewards can be rich - you can feel lighter, brighter and better understood. If you're ready to get started, please get in touch to take the first step.
