I've been working as a therapist for over 10 years with many different types of problems, such as depression, anxiety, abuse, and trauma. In that time I've learned to always respect the problem, or issue, as unique to each person. The most important component therefore is understanding. Only then can solutions and ways out be found.

Training, qualifications & experience
I'm an Integrative Humanistic psychotherapist with a Masters in Clinical Psychology. I'm also trained in E.M.D.R. therapy, and arts therapy. I specialize in working with:
- anxiety related issues
- relationship problems including separation, affairs, and divorce
- family issues
- sex and sexual identity questions
- Culture related problems
Most of my career has been spent in private practice working with individuals struggling with the issues mentioned. I find that in the time I've been working I've learned that people are not only amazingly resilient, but also that people often grow from life crisis', and that depressions and difficulties with anxiety are also in time sources of strength. I don't think that you just need to be positive and everything else is sorted. I think life is complex, and often what we think is a weakness, or a bad event, in time we see differently. I'm happy to talk if you feel you need.
