I am a chartered counselling psychologist offering therapy to individuals from a diverse range of cultural, social and religious backgrounds. I specialize in working with a wide range of psychological difficulties including trauma (and PTSD), anxiety and stress, relationship issues, depression, meaninglessness, low self-esteem, life transitions, and suicidal thoughts and feelings.
I have several years of experience working with different client groups across a wide range of settings (NHS, private and charity sectors) including primary, secondary, inpatient and forensic services. My experience therefore involves working with varying levels of human distress that have included both short and long-term therapeutic interventions.
I aim to facilitate a genuine, honest and collaborative relationship with my clients founded upon trust, openness and honesty where they feel able to explore personal and sensitive issues within a safe, confidential and non-judgmental therapeutic space.
How I work:
I work integratively, drawing on a number of different therapeutic approaches depending on the unique difficulties and needs of the person I am working with. Some of these approaches include: Humanistic Therapy, Existential Therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness, Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) Psychotherapy, Child Play Therapy (including the use of Creative Media).
I pay particular attention to the intricate ways in which our relationship with ourselves, with others, and with the world around us, impacts how we feel about ourselves and subsequently also how we engage with our own problems in living. The focus of our work is holistic in nature, taking into consideration your past experiences, your present situation and your future ambitions, in order to connect with important questions about what is meaningful to you and how you wish to live.
How can therapy help?
There are many reasons why someone might benefit from therapy. It can enable people to widen their perspective on themselves and the world around them, to understand themselves and their dilemmas better, to come to terms with past, current or future crises, and to gain clarity in discovering a sense of meaning, passion and purpose in their lives, helping them to take stock of their current predicaments and enabling them to finds ways of living that are most meaningful to them.
