I have worked in mental health for twenty years, both with individuals and with groups. I qualified as an Existential psychotherapist which is a philosophical exploratory psychotherapy, however over the years I have also integrated a range of modalities being informed by psychodynamic, person-centred and Mentalisation based therapy.
I have experience working in both organisations and the NHS, where I primarily work with clients who have suffered very undermining experiences in childhood, which have had a profound impact on their identity and how they see themselves, their ability to manage their emotions and interpersonal relationships. It is here that I specialised in working with trauma, complex needs and PTSD both with individuals and groups.
My work in private practice is more varied, and includes clients with a wide range of presenting concerns, including anxiety, depression, bereavement, addictions, or those who have questions about life and relationships, their sexuality, parenting, or how to manage certain life transitions, such as a break-up, redundancy or significant life changes.
Choosing to invest in yourself is an important decision, I work offering both short term and longer-term, open ended therapy. I am able to offer a confidential space where I will value your time and equally invest in your future, be it a road to recovery or an exploratory transition. I hope our work together will give you the tools you need to progress in your future.
Whatever your particular concern, please make contact for an initial consultation, so that we can think about how best to progress from here.
