About me

Have you ever heard of the saying 'can't see the forest for the trees?

When we keep repeating the same pattern of behaviour, we are unable to see which direction to take in order to change because we can't see the bigger picture.

Psychotherapy can help you see the bigger picture and find your way to a more fulfilling life.

It is my main concern as a psychotherapist to provide you with an environment that helps you feel accepted, respected and listened to. Whoever you are.

I offer short and long term Integrative psychotherapy and counselling. My Integrative model is based on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, but I also use a range of techniques and exercises borrowed from other approaches, in particular, Mindfulness.

CBT

'Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is a talking therapy that can help you manage your problems by changing the way you think and behave.
It's most commonly used to treat anxiety and depression, but can be useful for other mental and physical health problems.'

(Source: NHS choices)

I only use CBT in the context of a meaningful psychotherapeutic relationship and only if and when appropriate.

Psychodynamic Psychotherapy

We don't live in isolation but exist in relationships with others, therefore many clients come to therapy because of the emotional pain they experience in interpersonal relationships.

This approach can help you attain more rewarding and positive interpersonal relationships and, hence, personal wellbeing.
