About me

Are you finding life a struggle or feel there is no one to talk to? Or do you believe that no one would understand? Does this experience feel even more difficult to find the words that explain how you feel?

Life can bring a whole range of experiences that feel overwhelming. This can leave someone feeling as though there is nowhere to go. Furthermore, it could begin to separate people from their own lives. Perhaps something has happened that feels as if it's not for the first time, which could leave one wondering yet again what it means, or what to do next.

Therapy can provide a space to consider the issues that are current or help with understanding that there may be something more going on than meets the eye. With the appropriate support and understanding there is a chance of making sense of some of the issues. I offer one to one therapy which can be open ended or time limited.

I am a qualified psychodynamic psychotherapist/ counsellor. This means that I hold in mind the influences of your past, how and if any of this relates to the present and what that may mean in relation to your future. I am bound by the FPC Code of Ethics and work within the stringent framework of client confidentiality at all times.

If after reading this you feel some of these things resonate for you and would like to take that first important step towards exploring what may be going on, then do contact me to make an appointment.
