I am registered and accredited with the UKCP and MBACP as an Integrative Psychotherapist. My approach is to initially work with the main presenting issue, to get to know more about the individual's family and relationship history; key life events; main challenges and struggles; any repeating patterns of problematic behaviour; experiences of anxiety and depression, including intrusive thoughts and negative self-perception. Underpinning my approach is warmth, acceptance, being non-judgemental, gently challenging, exploring unconscious patterns and responses. Ultimately, I want you to feel heard, validated, accepted and helped by our work together.
I have 25 years' experience of providing counselling and psychotherapy to individuals and couples. I have particular expertise in helping with Bereavement, Relationship/Marital problems, Mental Health issues, Anxiety, Depression, Sexual problems and Addictions.
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.
