A new perspective on life, and on ourselves, often enables us to have the rich, and satisfying, existence that we all deserve.
People contact me for a variety of reasons – a long-term problem that doesn’t go away, an immediate crisis, or feelings of emptiness or vulnerability.
The good news, is that giving time and attention to your distress in the company of a listening, empathic, impartial therapist, can lighten the load, and allow you space to review your situation, and how you live and experience life.
Focusing on solutions
With a City based practice, that has been established for over ten years, my business-focused, analytical client base, give priority to an open, and direct style of working, which moves between therapy and coaching, .
The aim is to enable you, to explore and resolve issues, finding long-term solutions to your difficulties. The approach is tailored to the issues that are important to you.
I will help you find new perspectives, which will regulate, and manage difficult emotions as and when they arise. Therapy provides the opportunity to take a fresh look, at old thought patterns.
I have been practising as a psychotherapist for over ten years. Prior to that I worked for the NHS as a Risk Manager and in Human Resources. As well as my work as a Therapist, I present, write and I am a Trustee with Relate.
