I believe that everyone is fundamentally okay and has the capacity to change. I'm passionate about working with people, and I have a particular interest in working with trauma. For me, it isn't about asking, "What's wrong with you?", but rather, "What's happened to you?", processing your thoughts and feelings, and exploring how you can move forward.
Although my training is in 'Talking Therapies', not every client has the words to explain what has happened to them. This is why I will sometimes introduce creative techniques to clients who feel they will benefit from this as a way to express themselves differently.
I will always endeavour to go at your pace and be alongside you, and would invite and encourage you to let me know if you have any worries at all about the therapy process.
I've had therapy for many years myself, and remember how scary it was to make an initial enquiry. Yet therapy has been life-changing and, has given me incredible insights into why I think, feel and behave the way I do, as well as the tools to make changes; I believe it can do the same for you.
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.
