I believe the relationship we create provides the foundation for healing and that by providing a warm, non-judgmental and confidential environment, you will feel safe to work through painful feelings and explore your concerns and your thoughts. I do not believe that one therapeutic approach can help everyone and I strive to find the right approach for each individual client. My practice is informed by a range of long-established therapeutic approaches and the work I offer tends to involve a combination of focusing on current issues, examining the past and processing emotions so that they become less cumbersome.
Finding a therapist can feel daunting and I believe one of the best ways to start is by having a first conversation on the phone or online. That’s why I offer a 20-minute free initial consultation where I endeavour to answer some of the questions you may have. This conversation will also allow us to get a first sense of whether we are a good ‘fit’ for each other.
I am an experienced psychotherapist working in private practice and in various settings as part of the NHS Mental Health Network where I see adults of all ages suffering from a range of emotional issues, from the difficulties of everyday life all the way to severe mental health distress. I offer a safe and supportive space to help you resolve the issues that cause you distress and suffering. In that process, I aim to help you understand, accept and trust yourself, and discover that change is possible.
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.
