My Approach

I specialise in helping people understand what gets in the way of sustaining meaningful relationships. I work either on a 1-1 or in small, carefully composed therapy groups. I have extensive specialist training in this area, including my own psychotherapy and group analysis.
My approach is 'relational', meaning that I am very much alongside you in the therapy, working things out together. We look at the your current issues in light of your early family life, school, social situations, your race/ethicity, sexuality or anything else which might have left you with buried feelings which are affecting how you are in yourself and with others. So, if you are wondering why you are single, or want help with close friendships either at home or at work, then do get in touch for a free 1-1.

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.

Anxiety often masks other deeper feelings which may have been pushed down for many years. When these feelings are accessed and understood, the anxiety tends to lift
Group therapy is great for people who have struggled within their culture or been victims of intolerance, racism or if you just feel you’ve struggled to belong. You get to meet others in similar positions and to grow and feel confident in your own identity.
I enjoy helping people who have trouble getting what they need from their contact with others. Some people feel they are always accommodating, others that no one understands them and others keep getting rejected by the people who really matter. A few can’t understand why they are still single despite wanting a partner.
If you are feeling stressed out you can benefit from giving yourself some time during the week to understand why this is happening so you can be more relaxed and confident in life. Step off the treadmill for an hour or two each week to see what lies behind the stress, so it can lift.
