Working with me will help you explore and resolve enduring dissatisfactions in you life. We will do that by building a deep level of trust with one another, reshaping significant emotional experiences and beliefs, and exploring without judgement all aspects of who you are and who you want to be.
My approach is based on significant developments from the last few decades, which show how intimate relationships filled with stress, neglect and trauma can cause damaging responses such as anger, fear, withdrawal, depression and anxiety. Crucially, I am trained to help undo those responses through a relationship with you where it feels safe enough to explore your fears, pains and anxieties.
I have particular experience in helping those with trauma, depression, anxiety, addictions and intimacy issues. I particularly love working with young adults struggling to make their relationships work.
