About me

Life often presents difficult problems and changes that generate feelings of anxiety, depression and confusion.  Psychotherapy can help make sense of these changes, provide perspective and a basis for moving on.

I am an existential psychotherapist, with an integrative grounding in humanistic and psycho-dynamic psychotherapy. I have been practising for 10 years. As an existential psychotherapist, my approach is philosophically rather than theoretically based. Existential analysis is concerned with being human and all that this entails, especially how people approach the problems and situations that they encounter. I understand psychotherapy to be kind of clearing, a clearing in the sense of an open space for reflection, imagination and creativity, for thinking and feeling one's way through things, as well as clearing out old ways to make way for the new.

I work through a process of dialogue, by listening and questioning, in order to elicit a description of your experience.  Working toward a common understanding of your experience can help you listen more closely to yourself and come to terms with the problems you face. As part of this process, I will often suggest that you explore your embodied feelings, in order to facilitate a holistic approach to therapy.  I also employ dream exploration, active imagination and focusing where appropriate.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
