I am an experienced, qualified, UKCP-registered psychotherapist and training supervisor.
I offer a confidential, respectful space for individuals and couples in which, if you are in crisis, or are seeking to make some changes, you can explore whatever it is that is troubling you.
Anxiety, stress, depression, addictions, relationship difficulties, general stuckness... these and other issues affect many of us at some point in life, and when they do it can be overwhelming. You might feel lost, unanchored, unsure where to turn, either as an individual or in your close relationships. Everything can start to feel unmanageable or hopeless.
Psychotherapy can help. It can help you to cope better with problems, to develop a deeper sense of yourself as an individual, and to improve your relationships with others.
As well as looking at difficulties that you are encountering in the present and have experienced in the past, we might work with dreams and other images that you bring as a way of trying to gain a deeper understanding of what might be going on unconsciously, creating obstacles that trip you up and prevent you from living as you would like to.
I welcome enquiries by telephone or e-mail. Before arranging to meet for an initial consultation, we can have a brief telephone conversation so that you can tell me a bit about your situation.
If we decide to meet, we will arrange a mutually convenient appointment which I will confirm with you by e-mail. At our first meeting, you will be able to tell me in more detail about yourself and what it is that has prompted you to look into psychotherapy. You will be free to ask any questions during the first session and as we continue with other sessions.
I generally work in an open-ended, long-term way, but am also able to work on a short-term counselling basis. Sessions can be once, twice or three-times weekly, as required.
Depending on what you are searching for, it can be helpful to have several sessions a week.
Sessions can be once weekly or fortnightly.
I am available for weekly or fortnightly supervision with trainee and qualified psychotherapists, counsellors and supervisors. Telephone, Skype or FaceTime supervision is also available.
