I am trained as an Integrative Relational Psychotherapist. This means I have a wide range of theories to draw on to help you and I will work relationally with you, not be a blank screen that you get nothing back from. This enables you to relax and be yourself which will help you to open up and explore what is going on for you with the problems you are experiencing in life.
I work extensively with couples using Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy which looks at how you relate to and effect each other emotionally and how your emotional needs are met in relationship. As with individual work there is a strong link with attachment styles in couples work.
I work in the following areas:
Anxiety, abuse, bereavement, depression, low self esteem, relational problems including repeating damaging patterns of behaviour. Stress, long term illness, self-motivation, self-destruction. Terminal illness including cancer - diagnosis, through treatment, survivorship and end of life palliative psychotherapy.
My private practice is located in Oakham and is a calm, quiet and confidential place for us to talk. I work with adults, young people and couples. Long or short term work is available to help you reach your personal aim of therapy.
