My goal is to provide you with the assurance you need to feel comfortable discussing and exploring the concerns and difficulties you have. Most importantly, I want you to trust me and feel safe enough to work through the issues concerning you. I have a varied and extended history in the health field and have worked in numerous settings, including the NHS, with all ages, backgrounds and abilities. I have worked with mental health issues and those with physical disabilities.
I can work with you in either of two ways. We can work together relatively quickly, say an agreed 6-12 weeks, towards a goal you are comfortable with, orf we can work for as long as necessary, with no time constraints. In this way you can fully unravel aspects of yourself that may need exploring. Or you may discover you want to extend the short term process, which does happen.
I offer a low fee first session for me to get an assessment and for you to ask any questions you may have.

About me: The techniques I lean towards vary accordingly. For the short term processes I sometimes use a blended version of Cognitive Behavioural and Compassion Focused Techniques but for the open ended therapy I usually lean towards a more Systemic/Psychodynamic or Client Centred approach.
I'd like to say I have a Mindful Practise however I often find myself engaging with clients in such a varied way as I aim to suit your needs, so most would say I have an Integrative Practise, which to me means a blend.
I am an American, mostly from New York, which may influence my style to be more direct and transparent that some people are used to. Many find it refreshing. I offer a reduced fee, informative introductory session so we may get to meet each other first.
