About me

I have practiced for the past 32 years as a psychotherapist and have extensive experience of working with personal issues such as relationship problems, trauma, depression, anxiety.

My way of thinking about therapy is that we are deeply influenced by the environment we grew up in, both family and culture, creating patterns of thinking, feeling and behaviour which can limit how we feel about ourselves and our place in the world.

In essence we are who we have been.

As a consequence when we are faced by pressures from our everyday life, which can challenge or potentially overwhelm our well established ways of coping, we can find support and understanding through an empathic, thoughtful and challenging therapeutic relationship.

This can be by understanding more deeply your historical patterns and begin to express more fully your thoughts and emotions, which may have been suppressed for a long time.

I suggest that we have an initial session for exploration of the issues that you are feeling challenged by, and to see whether we both think that the support I can offer is relevant at this time.

We could then agree to work for a short period of time looking at particular issues (for instance work challenges, bereavement), or for a longer period addressing how experiences from your earlier life continue to detrimentally affect your current sense of self.

Please don't hesitate to make an initial contact, and look forward to hearing from you.
