To book an initial session or a free phone consultation call me on 07966 582320 or email me using the button on this page. If I am unable to answer the phone I will endeavour to call you back on the same day usually within a few hours.
The first session(s) can be used to explore in confidence what brings you to therapy and whether psychotherapy might be what you need right now.
Psychotherapy can help change deep seated patterns and can help people deal with, come to terms with, or recover from many of lifes difficulties.
It may be helpful if:
you are depressed, anxious or stressed
you want to improve your relationships
you suffer from panic attacks
you live with eating disorders
you have experienced loss or bereavement
you are confused about your sexuality
your life seems to lack meaning
you want to develop your potential
you suffer from obsessional thoughts
you feel held back by inappropriate anger or lack of confidence
you suffer physical problems with no clear physical cause
