The Awareness Centre

The Duke Street Practice

I am an integrative psychotherapist experienced in working with a wide range of issues including: anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, relationship issues, postnatal depression, bereavement, anger management, OCD, eating disorders, binge eating, body confidence issues and family problems.
All of us face challenges in our lives and at times these challenges may feel overwhelming or too difficult to cope with, the way I work is conversational and supportive, I provide a confidential and accepting place to help you manage and explore whatever you are going through.
Psychotherapy can help us to understand and gain awareness of ourselves and our behavioural patterns, allowing us to take control of our lives and have choices about what we do and how we do it. We can become conscious of how we respond to and express different emotions, how we communicate, how we form and maintain relationships or how we manage conflict, and therefore we can develop the capacity to change things for the better.

Feel free to call me on 07956 185651 and ask any questions you may have about how we might work together, if I’m unable to answer your phone call please leave a message and I will call you back.
Alternatively you can email me by clicking on the link at the top of the page.
In our initial session you will be able to talk about whatever has lead you to seek therapy and what you are hoping to gain from it, you will be able to find out more about how the sessions will work and get a sense of how we might work together. If for any reason I think another therapist would be a better fit for you I will let you know. If we decide to continue working together I'll book further sessions for you.
