I practice Person-Centred and experiential psychotherapy. This is based on the work of Carl Rogers who believed it is inherent within all of us to grow and expand what it means to be us, to evolve to be the best version of ourselves possible, but that this natural tendency can be thwarted in adverse conditions. As challenging as this may sound he also provided much research which demonstrated that given the right conditions we are able to make the changes we seek. I am not a classically-orientated Person-Centred psychotherapist, I work very much with the experiential side of my training. The analogy I like to use is that of looking at a map; you tell me the direction you would like to go and I offer you different ways of getting there. I won't tell you which direction to go in, that's your choice, but I will help you navigate the path you choose.
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.
