Sometimes life gets tough and we may need someone in our corner to help us through.
Whilst challenging life events (such as bereavement, relationship difficulties, losses, work pressures, stress and significant life changing events) can impact on our emotional wellbeing. Mental health difficulties (such as anxiety, phobias, depression, bipolar) can make life more of a challenge. I have 16 years experience of helping people with all of the above.
I offer a range of evidence based therapies (short and longer term) recommended for mental health and emotional difficulties such as Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Counselling and brief focused therapies.
Making changes and engaging in therapy can be a big step to take, I believe that therapy is something done with someone and not to someone and will work flexibly to help you address your concerns successfully.
For some people simply getting to therapy can be hard, therefore the majority of my work is per video link (or telephone if preferred) which means sessions are accessible from almost anywhere.
This option is very helpful for people such as new mums, people with irregular childcare, mobility or transport problems, or shift workers who cannot commit to a particular time slot. It can also help make therapy more affordable and achievable by reducing time spent off work or in traffic. Life can be hard enough, therapy shouldn't complicate matters!
