For 18 years I worked in the field of human rights and social justice before deciding to pursue my lifelong curiosity in psychology, moving into the world of self-development and counselling.
I work integratively, drawing on various models and backgrounds, depending on the needs of my clients. I believe that knowledge and understanding of ourselves and of the world comes from our lived experience. For this reason, understanding your personal life experience will inform and lead our sessions.
Perhaps you’re experiencing difficulties in past relationships. Maybe you lack confidence in social situations or generally finding it hard to cope with low self-esteem. Perhaps you are experiencing work related stress or generalised anxiety, depression or panic attacks. It might be that you simply found yourself stuck in life and can’t find the way forward. Sometimes stressful life events can be so emotionally overwhelming, that we no longer wish to cope alone.
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.
