About me

I am a qualified Psychotherapist with UKCP registration and BACP accreditation. I offer a safe, non-judgmental space to explore the areas of life concerning you. I aim to establish a good therapeutic alliance with you so as to help you move forward with growing confidence and contentment towards a more positive direction in life.

Initially we meet for a 60 minutes assessment session where we explore what you would like from therapy. It can be open ended or, if you prefer short term work. My approach is integrative drawing from psychoanalytic, existential and person-centred perspectives. Together we will look at the issues concerning you and the impact on your life. We will look at coping strategies and how to resolve present day difficulties. To do this we will look at previous experiences in childhood through to adulthood to get a sense of why these experiences may influence and impact present day circumstances. The work demands rigorous honesty with yourself and therefore I will encourage you, and at times challenge you, to express yourself openly and freely within a safe and supportive environment.

Troubling thoughts and emotional difficulties may be triggered by relationship issues, illness, stress, bereavement or family circumstances. It may be that feelings are difficult to express; they may cause distress to others, or the feelings may be so overwhelming that life seems pointless. You will have a contained and safe space to express yourself freely in a supportive environment without fear of judgement.


How to get started with therapy.

The first thing to do is to call or email me so as to set up an initial session where we explore what brings you to therapy and what it is that you want to get out of it. After the first session, you can decide if you wish to continue, and if so, we would arrange future sessions; it could be weekly or on a more casual basis. Whether you decide you would like short term or long term work and the frequency of sessions-it's entirely up to you.

I look forward to hearing from you.
