I offer a free exploratory consultation session to explore why you have come into therapy and what it is you'd like to achieve. This is an opportunity to see if we'll get on. The desire to want to change often comes out of finding yourself stuck in the same place. This can feel difficult, confusing and even overwhelming, so finding the right therapist for you is essential. The success of our relationship will often determine the success of the therapy so if we decide we want to work together we'll make a plan and if not I'll do my best to recommend someone who might better suit your needs.
I work with adults either short of long term in a relational, psychodynamic and integrative way. This enables us to look at the mental blocks you’ve hit, to unlock new ways of thinking through the past in order to awaken the present.
I am a warm, empathic and direct therapist who can offer you somewhere safe and confidential to explore yourself deeply and in your own time.
I come from a creative back ground which lends itself to the energy and commitment I give to my work. I believe it is the quality of our relationships that lie at the core of our sense of self. We can change the narrative of our lives through understanding our identity from different perspectives.
I have worked with clients from all ages and backgrounds both for NHS and Mind organisation and continue to develop as a therapist through my commitment to my own CPD.
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.
