My specialism is working with underlying issues such as, addictions, depression, trauma and childhood abandonment and neglect. I also specialise in working with co-dependency and relationship issues, low self esteem, anxiety, bereavement and loss.
I offer a safe, confidential space, and through the establishment of a trustful therapeutic relationship we could together explore the issues that are causing you difficulty. I will support you In exploring your past formative experiences and future concerns which may be impacting on your present day choices and decisions, and in the way you form and maintain relationships with others. Times of struggle and crises can often, also present real opportunities for growth and with self awareness and deeper understanding of our motives change comes naturally and spontaneously.
