Welcome to my page
We are experiencing an unprecedented level of fear, panic, stress and anxiety as a result of COVID-19. This situation may feel unbearable and unmanageable, particularly if you are alone.
This is a challenging time and it is not uncommon to become depressed and anxious. This situation is also masking other mental health problems which may no longer remain suppressed. Whatever is going on, help is available.
Some of us have the support of family and friends, however, sometimes, those around you are not able to listen or support you in the way you need.
I am an experienced and trained psychotherapist and have worked with a diverse range of people and complex mental health issues. The therapy I offer is tailored to meet the need of my clients. I work in solution focused approach to therapy, CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy, psychodynamic and humanistic therapy. I can work with you on a time-limited, short term and ongoing basis. I offer counselling and psychotherapy.
Should you wish to start therapy with me, I can offer an initial consultation of 15 minutes where you can ask questions and we decide together on a way forward.
If I don't have availability or if I can't help, I can refer you as I work with a team of other experienced psychotherapists.
