My Approach

I am an existential-analytic psychotherapist. My approach is to work with people as unique individuals whose relationships and experiences are shaped by their adult self as well as childhood experiences, whether or not adverse or traumatic. The relationship between myself and my clients offers an experience of support and understanding through which they can begin to clarify and make sense of their world in the light of repeated behaviours, recurring strong feelings, as well as popular culture and the political context. I find that the process of therapy helps people to get under their own skin and better understand their own lives so as to find a way to breathe more easily and live more freely.

About Me

I have been working in the ‘helping professions’ since 2002 supporting people individually and in groups with difficulties such as addiction, loss, anxiety, depression, and loneliness. Since training as a therapist I have worked in private practice, primary care (NHS), alcohol and drug treatment, and with people estranged from their families.

I see psychotherapy as a process of paying careful attention to the individual experience, offering a space of listening and reflection. My approach is to see therapy as a unique experience with each client, an ongoing deepening conversation which allows the individual to connect with their feelings and life stories then to explore why they might feel and act as they do.

I draw from a range of theory (psychoanalytic, existential and phenomenological) in order to deepen my understanding of the individual difficulties faced and, in the context of a relationship of trust and respect, offer my interpretation and support.

Please contact me if you would like an initial chat or to book a consultation.
