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 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.
