I work with individuals on an open-ended basis as a psychotherapist or for an agreed time period as a counsellor, with the aim of enabling you to enhance your life and to live it more fully. By looking at our unconscious thoughts, dreams and behaviour, we can gradually develop insight and stop repeating the things that hold us back from being all we can be.
I have worked in private business and management for over twenty years. I understand the pressures and stresses that juggling work and home life can bring.
Having worked for over a decade in a voluntary capacity with people suffering from depression and mental health problems, I will not judge how you are feeling.
You do not have to have mental health issues to enter counselling and psychotherapy. My own experience is that we can all benefit from understanding ourselves better.
I believe that there is no shame in saying that you need support with emotional difficulties. I have found that, through psychotherapy, people become more aware of themselves and their behaviour. Through this, they can take control and make decisions about what happens in their lives. I provide you with a safe and confidential space to explore life’s difficulties and challlenges. I offer a non-judgemental, listening ear and a supportive approach.
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.
