I am an experienced psychotherapist offering online appointments with a broad range of experience in private practice and the NHS.
You may be suffering from anxiety or depression. Perhaps your feeling overwhelmed, disconnected, sad or experiencing relationship difficulties or break up. Or maybe you are in transition and experiencing a lot of change. I work empathetically, providing a safe space to make sense of difficult experiences and feelings.
I adopt a psychodynamic approach, which explores how your experiences in the present are informed by your past. In understanding these through time, unhelpful patterns of behaviour and thinking can be re-frammed, leading to an enhanced self esteem, emotional wellbeing and relationships.
