My Approach

I am trained as an integrative psychotherapist and am able to adapt my approach to your needs. The relationship we build is a very important part of the process, and I will focus on building a supportive and trusting bond. Within this safe space it becomes possible to achieve greater self awareness which can uncover the barriers that have unknowingly been getting in the way of more satisfying relationships in your life, as well as challenging long standing patterns and beliefs that may no longer be serving you, causing detriment to your self-esteem, and ability to go forwards. Whilst it can sometimes be helpful to have tools, our work will focus more on understanding those parts of yourself which may feel hidden, troubling and confusing.

About Me

Perhaps you are experiencing stress and anxiety, or difficulties around loss, or feeling lonely or unhappy in relationships? Maybe something has happened recently to trigger your unhappiness, or perhaps it has been like this for a long time. The way you are feeling might be uncomfortable and hard to understand, and I want you to know that people access therapy for many reasons, often when their usual coping strategies are no longer working. Reaching out to family and friends may not always be enough, and so seeking professional help becomes the next step. As a therapist, I will work to build a safe and supportive space where you can start to explore and make sense of whatever is happening to you.

  • Private healthcare referrals

Special Interests

Like all UKCP registered psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors I can work with a wide range of issues, but here are some areas in which I have a special interest or additional experience.

The symptoms of anxiety can be crippling and can hugely impact our ability to live our lives. In therapy, there are many ways to address anxiety, sometimes through understanding it as a physiological response to perceived threat. Exploration of past trauma, enables greater integration and processing, so as you begin to feel safer these symptoms begin to lessen leaving you more free to move forwards with your life.
Many of the issues I explore with clients are connected with family relationships both past and present. Even where we are only working with one member of a family system, it is still possible to make changes and gain greater individual security to manage difficulties.
Relationships are an integral part of human life. When we experience conflict within our close relationships, this impacts the whole fabric of our being. Therapy is a way of learning more about ourselves in relationships with others, and addresses past problems as well as preparing us for more satisfying future relationships.
