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.

I work with clients to recognise what contributes to feelings of anxiety current or linked to past. Explore with clients to recognise patterns and ideas that are linked to anxiety and develop helpful techniques and patterns.
I am experienced in exploring cultural beliefs that shape their sense of identity and develop some times unhelpful interactional patterns. I will help the clients to explore untold stories and beliefs that could add to richness to their lives, value their differences and develop a positive sense of identity
Working with clients who experience symptoms of depression to help them explore contributing factors as well as what continues to maintain their difficulties. How these difficulties impacts of their sense of identity and how this impacts on relationships so client would be able to connect with with helpful beliefs and interactional patterns.
