About me

Many reasons can  trigger a decision to look for a Psychotherapist / Counsellor. It can often be when someone's quality of life and day to day activities are being undermined by anxiety and emotional distress. Or, they find themselves in situations or relationships that are hard to manage, understand or resolve. Many situations in life leave us feeling powerless and sensing that we have no choice. Psychotherapy / Counselling can often help by: Identifying your current and underlying concerns. Deepening your understanding of problematic feelings and behaviors. Increasing your awareness.  Encouraging you to think more clearly about a situation or from a different perspective.

Of special interest to me is the Psychology of attachment, early trauma and loss and how this may impact on the present for example: relationship issues, depression, anxiety, affairs and betrayal, adolescence, self harm, eating disorders, sexual abuse, loneliness and isolation etc.

My style of working is warm and non judgmental.

As every individual and situation is unique, the therapeutic goals and psychotherapeutic techniques utilized are specifically tailored for each client This will be discussed /explored in the first session.
