I am an experienced psychotherapist in private practice working from a peaceful village in Rutland. I work with adult clients experiencing a range of difficulties such as anxiety and depression, relational difficulties, divorce, bereavement and grief, anger, life transitions and low self esteem.
Coming into therapy does not always mean having a problem.Sometimes clients are looking at reviewing their life and the direction it is going in and find that an opportunity to spend time reflecting on their life is helpful. Life transitions such as the moves into marriage, parenthood, retirement and widowhood can be benefited when given space to reflect in a confidential environment.
I have extensive experience of working with families and children with such issues as: parenting and parenting styles, child emotional stages, separation and attachment. This includes the specific attachment, separation and behavioural challenges that can occur in post-adoption.
I work from my own home where I have a dedicated therapy room. My room offers a warm, confidential and comfortable environment and is suitable for individual clients or couples.
My approach is to explore what clients are wanting from therapy in a collaborative, respectful, accepting and empowering manner. Predominately I use careful listening and attend closely. However where appropriate I can also offer other creative ways such as drawing, writing or sculpting to help a client's work become more meaningful.
As a therapist I have developed and maintain a supportive network of colleagues. I am a member of UKCP(United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy) and abide by their code of practice and ethical standards
