My Approach

My approach is interactive and relational. We will be collaborating together to find answers and acquire the desired results. I aim for you to experience changes and improvements within the early sessions (1-3) - learn strategies and gain insights. I am down to earth and open, and it is important to me that clients feel rapport and trust.

About Me

Hi, I am a senior Integrative psychotherapist, in clinical practice for 25 years. My work is based on best practice and clinical evidence. Previous experience has been within the NHS, public and private sector, psychiatric care, Director and Professor of Psychotherapy at Regents University and in the field of addictions. I combine psychotherapy with coaching as I find this gets the best results - we look at the root causes and also employ effective strategies that can be used from the outset. I also include CBT, Mindfulness and Psychoeducation alongside key humanistic and psychodynamic theories. I work both short and long term (see my website for 'how long therapy takes?'; and I offer weekly and fortnightly options, as well as early morning and lunch time sessions, to suit busy schedules.

Special Interests

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.

Many people experience excessive worry, fear, and stress that interferes with their daily lives. You may have racing thoughts, physical symptoms like panic attacks, and difficulty concentrating or sleeping. The aim is to reduce anxiety, learn coping strategies to manage anxiety effectively, reduce the frequency and intensity of anxious thoughts and feelings: overcome and manage severe and moderate/mild anxiety - GAD (generalised anxiety disorder); Manage and prevent Panic Attacks; discover the triggers to gain control; understand the root causes for deeper resolution.
Common struggles include persistent sadness, loss of interest or pleasure in activities, changes in appetite or sleep patterns, and a sense of hopelessness. This can be long term or short term, with or without medication. Learn how to manage and cope - develop a personal toolkit; identify triggers and strategies that work for you; understand the root causes - so as preventative and minimising. The aims are: Mood Improvement - alleviating the symptoms of depression and achieving a more positive and stable mood; Enhanced Functioning - improving daily functioning, including work performance, relationships, and self-care; Increase Resilience - build emotional resilience and learn skills to prevent future episodes of depression.
Relationship problems can manifest in communication breakdowns, conflicts, trust issues, infidelity, or difficulties in forming and maintaining healthy relationships: Cultivate healthier and more fulfilling relationships, whether in personal life or workplace. This could include improving communication, resolving conflicts, and building stronger connections with others, Improving communication; Building trust; Strengthening bonds; Effectively managing relationship crises; Overcoming obstacles; Discernment Appraisal; Narcissistic Personality; Co-dependency; Changing negative habits and patterns; Recognising & understanding themes; Deepening relationships; Establishing new patterns of relating; Untangling complex dynamics; Addressing historic, present, future (preventative).
Improve Stress Management by learning stress management techniques to better handle life's challenges and prevent burnout. Also, increase confidence - overcoming stress can lead to improved self-confidence and the ability to engage in social activities, work, and relationships more comfortably. Managing stress will prevent burnout and achieve a balanced and fulfilling life. Stress reduction techniques and self-care practices, will help improve overall emotional well-being.
Help with leadership skills, workplace dynamics, career transitions; assistance in advancing career, becoming an effective leader, achieving professional excellence, improving decision-making skills, enhancing leadership presence, overcoming career-related challenges, improving communication, resolving conflicts, building stronger connections with others.
