About me

I am a fully qualified and registered integrative psychotherapist and research psychologist. Working in an integrative way, means that my training enables me to draw upon a number of different theories and approaches (i.e., Humanistic (client/person-centred), Transactional Analysis, Attachment, Psychoanalytical, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, and Gestalt).

My work with clients can take several forms depending on the issues that an individual is currently dealing with. In the main I work with adults to overcome a wide range of issues including anxiety, panic attacks, depression, transition difficulties, self-esteem, anger, stress, gender, relationship, work-related problems, bereavement and loss.

Therapy sessions often focus on helping individuals to develop new, more adaptive, coping strategies to replace those which are not currently life-enhancing, and: have thus led to the current problems.
