About Me

Choosing the right therapist can be a rather daunting experience so I will try to explain a little about me and how I work as well as what you can expect from therapy.

Sometimes life catches up with us, or we are caught out by something which can throw us off balance, and we might need a ‘helping hand’ to guide us through it. Over the years my work has brought me into contact with people from all walks of life who have come seeking help with a range of problems. I work in the NHS as well as privately meeting with adults, children and young people who find it hard to manage their responses to all sorts of emotional difficulties, some of which are listed below.

As a Cognitive Analytic Psychotherapist my main aim is to work collaboratively with you, at your pace, in a confidential and safe therapeutic space. During our meetings we will work together to try to understand the unhelpful patterns of relating - to yourself and others - which can keep you stuck repeating the same old cycles, with a view to adopting more constructive ways of responding and relating.

During the therapy I will use various tools to help with our understanding of what we discuss. These include a letter documenting a written reformulation of your difficulties and the co-creation of a personal diagram or map which will act as a visual representation of the patterns we identify and help to guide us in our work together. Sometimes I use creative imagery and personal or general stories to assist in understanding the thoughts and emotions connected with what you might bring for us to think about.

I am happy to discuss your needs over the phone and if we agree I will arrange an initial consultation / assessment with you which lasts about an hour. If you decide to continue, the therapy is of a fixed duration which will be mutually agreed between us within the first few appointments. A typical Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT) is between 8 – 24 sessions. Each therapy session lasts for 50 minutes and we will meet weekly.

If you prefer, I can offer shorter term work using a CAT informed approach or coaching techniques to think about a specific issue you may want help working through. Again, I am more than happy to discuss this with you at an initial consultation.

I can meet with you in person, or if you prefer, I also offer online sessions. I am generally available on Thursday mornings and will also consider early evening appointments.
