Research consistently shows that the average person at the end of therapy is better off than 80% of those who do not have therapy. This is great news. Whatever your difficulty – depression, anxiety, stress, relationship issues, addiction, obsessive thoughts/behaviours, loss of purpose – you don’t have to keep suffering! All of these problems, and others, can be treated successfully by therapy.
I work with individuals and couples, and run workshops and retreats for groups.
The forms of therapy I use are Intensive Short-Term Dynamic Psychotherapy (ISTDP) and Emotion Focussed Therapy. They are both based upon thirty years of clinical observation and research designed to determine the most effective and efficient ways to rapidly implement change in therapy. -
Due to the focused and structured nature of my therapy approach, my clients often tell me that we've accomplished more in our first few sessions than they have in years of previous psychotherapy. My therapy approach is collaborative and I take an active and involved position during the sessions. I am both compassionate and challenging while encouraging you to take a new look at old patterns so that you can heal from past wounds and live your life more fully.
