As an Adult Integrative Psychotherapist, I can offer short or long term therapy to aid recovery. I have over 30 years of Mental Health professional experience, and deal with a wide range of issues.
Sessions are flexible and a single lasts 50 minutes. Length of treatment can be tailored to your needs. I use a range of therapies helping individuals who may be experiencing current difficulties such as bereavement, stress, anxiety and adjustment to life changes.
More longstanding issues often affect our ability to maintain healthy relationships and manifest in Depression and low self esteem . Psychotherapy offers an insight and exploration into the root of these issues. The aim is to help individuals make informed decisions on how best to change their outcomes in a positive way.
The key focus is to help you build strength of mind and develop skills to deal with the pressures of everyday life. Without judgement or prejudice I am committed to providing the highest calibre of Therapy and Counselling Services.
Issues commonly dealt with : anxiety, depression, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) relationship issues, post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), adjustment problems, work related stress, bereavement, trauma (including childhood trauma) and issues associated to being a Carer.
