As a psychologist I'm experienced in the assessment and treatment of depression, anxiety, addictions, personality disorders, relationship difficulties as well as trauma and mental health issues. I have a particular interest in supporting careers as well as gifted and talented individuals.
You don’t need to have a "disorder" to benefit from support. Therapy and/or coaching can help with daily struggles, difficulty coping, relationship issues, feeling out of control as well has with defined disorders.
I use a dynamic, grounded and consultative approach to address directly what is needed. This has shaped a therapeutic understating of the range of emotional and psychological difficulties.
In addition to the core training in Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, I have training in several specialist therapeutic approaches such as Mentalization (MBT) to practitioner status, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Schema Focused Therapy (SFT), PCT (Person-centred Therapy), Mindfulness-Based approaches and Family Therapy.
These are effective treatment methods for supporting struggles, Coaching adds a personal growth and problem-solving dimension that can truly enhance a development process.
I have a working understanding of Existential, Narrative and Transpersonal practises which is of great value in our multi-cultural context.

Gifted and Talented
We feel that these arenas have specific needs, a level of intensity and unique underlying dynamics warranting specialist interventions.
After supporting creative people through institutional systems, I identified the need to shape a service around their unique needs, lifestyles and goals. This led to Storm’s Edge Therapy aimed at providing a focused service for people at the creative forefront of an ever changing society.
During your initial intake session we will assess your struggle in the context of your lifestyle, temperament and goals. I aim for greater clarity on the difficulty and what is keeping you from a resolution. We will then come to an agreement around the future course at this point.
Afternoon session (1pm-4pm start): £120 per session.
Evening Sessions (5pm-8pm start): £140 per session.
The cost for the initial intake appointment and ongoing session are the same.
For Counselling Directory users we are offering a discount for 25% on the intake assessment session. When booking your initial appointment use this referral code: CounsDir25.
We will decide on a treatment plan/direction and goals which are then reviewed every three sessions.
