I am an existential psychotherapist working with individuals and couples who are looking to take meaningful steps towards living in more fulfilling ways.
In seeking therapy, we are committing to invest in ourselves and the important relationships around us. This is a daunting task that requires courage, honesty and compassion from both the client and the therapist.
Our most compelling emotional learnings occur through relationships, not on our own, therefore the therapist and the quality of the therapeutic relationship are fundamental to deeper emotional understanding and insight.
As your therapist I will take an active role in creating a private and safe space for you to consider your life in a way that is rarely possible with family or friends.
Exploring the deeper meaning of our behaviours, thoughts and feelings facilitates a new understanding of ourselves, offers insights and ultimately helps us reach the desired change.
My work with couples involves exploring the underlying deeper issues that are the basis of repetitive conflict and disconnection. Together, we can work to expand and reorganise the emotional responses of each person and learn how to better understand and relate to one another.
The therapeutic work can be short term or open ended depending on your individual needs.

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.
