They say it's all in the mind...as if that makes it any easier! Sometimes it is just a phase or a bad patch, but not always. When it starts affecting your ability to cope with your life, professional help can make all the difference.
Every now and again nearly everyone feels as though life is getting on top of them. For some people these are transitory feelings that pass quickly but for others they are more difficult to shake off and can begin to cause problems at home and at work. I provide a safe, nurturing and completely confidential environment in which thoughts and feelings can be discussed openly, the path to resolution can become clear and the door to healing can be unlocked. I help by listening and reflecting on a problem, and will assist you to reach a deeper self understanding, thereby opening the way to changes that are right for you.
I provide counselling and psychotherapy in a non-judgmental environment working with individuals to help them address and resolve even the most complex and intractable problems. My goal is to help them to overcome their problems, enhance their wellbeing and live their lives more fully.
I have extensive experience working within the NHS, based in a large hospital outpatient psychiatric unit, a Community Mental Health Team and as a counsellor in GPs’ surgeries. In addition, I have maintained a busy private practice alongside my work within the NHS. I have experience of working with clients from a great diversity of backgrounds with many differing needs and requirements.
Both within the NHS and in private practice, my integrative approach to psychotherapy involves drawing on several different methods including the psychodynamic and humanistic approaches while incorporating aspects of some of the newer approaches, such as CBT. I also use both EFT and EMDR for working with trauma.
