I am an experienced psychotherapist working with adults & young people addressing a broad range of issues such as; depression, anxiety, low self esteem, self harm, sexual abuse, relationship problems, loss, relationship problems, life changes etc. With a long standing interest in various eating disorders I specialise in this area. Using a combination of approaches I help individuals overcome what has become problematic in life through the use of long or short term therapy.
Training, qualifications & experience
Formerly involved in teaching and working with physical health I recognised conflicting attitudes, fears and repressed feelings directly influence the body and how we function. My integrative approach draws from Psychoanalytic, Person Centred and Mindfulness therapeutic methods acquired throughout my 15 years of practice. My experience includes working with children & young people and in training for a UKCP accredited Diploma in Child/Adolescent psychotherapy.
Addressing what has become difficult in life can help you identify, understand and make meaning of what is at the root of your problem, bringing stability and a better presence of mind.
I also run small groups or individual sessions for persons who fight with their weight, whether over weight, under weight or a healthy weight. This includes those who struggle with Bulimia, Anorexia, Binge eating etc. to find out more please visit my website or contact me.
