About me

Individual Psychotherapy
Psychotherapy helps the person with relationships and other struggles within the self. There are times in life when it can be hard to cope with difficult situations and challenging problems. Psychotherapy can provide a therapeutic encounter where together we can make sense of unwanted feelings and thoughts. Symptoms can be understood as manifestations of distress and their meanings can be explored together with care and respect. The aim is to make life happier, easier to live and invite creativity and growth in the person.

As a group analyst I am mindful of the family, social and environmental context in which an individual is located and I am interested in how their network of relationships has informed who they are and how they experience themselves. Conversation enables connection and the possibility of new thoughts. New thoughts can generate changes in being and behaviour.

Group Psychotherapy
Working in a group is often a good way to approach a problem, since group members learn to be themselves with others. The therapy becomes an increasingly articulate expression of feelings and thoughts, which leads to the possibility of intimacy. Group members learn from and help each other. Whilst it may seem daunting initially to be in a group and share, the dividends in terms of learning, connection and belonging are tremendous.
