I offer psychotherapy, counselling, and emotional support working with individuals and couples with relationship issues.
My aim is to provide a safe, confidential and contained environment for people to understand what is happening for them. Transactional Analysis can be used as a cognitive-behavioural approach and a more relational approach with clients; it can help people gain an awareness and understanding of their patterns of behaviour and where communication is breaking down.
The philosophy of Transactional Analysis underpins my work with clients.
- People are OK;
- Everyone has the Capacity to think;
- People decide their own destiny and these decisions can be changed.
I work with clients on a short term and long term basis, face to face or via Skype (for individuals) and am able to work in both English and British Sign Language.
- relationships, including heterosexual and same-sex couples, friends, siblings, and parent/child.
- Generalised anxiety disorder
- bereavement and loss
- self Harm
- confidence, self-esteem
- family issues
- relationship break up/divorce
