As a qualified and experienced psychotherapist and Practitioner Psychologist , I can help you explore and process emotional difficulties that might be preventing you from having the quality of life you want.
I can guide you to develop cognitive, emotional and behavioural strategies that will contribute towards preventing any further psychological problems as well as being more positive. You will be encouraged to explore both intrinsic and interpersonal problems and to develop new behavioral skills.
I work with individuals and groups in the Mental Health Sector. Psychotherapy is a process which is based on empathy, unconditional acceptance and understanding in a safe and confidential environment.
