I have been around the world of therapy for over 34 years and have been working with individuals for 32. I offer short and long term psychotherapy, depending on your needs. I work with adults and teenagers.
I can help you with relationship issues, addiction, anxiety, phobias, eating disorders and depression. If you are struggling within a relationship, you can come to talk to me about how the feelings evoked in your relationship may be triggering past events. Anxiety usually masks other issues, as does depression and I am happy to help you look at those concerns.
I am registered with the UKCP in their Humanist and Integrative section. I work psychodynamically so will help you look at issues from the past in such a way that they do not inflame your present. My aim is to help you sustain yourself in times of difficulty. I encourage growth, inner strength, self reliance and resilience.
I also have a three year training in transpersonal psychotherapy which will help you gain a greater understanding of your inner world. I work with individuals around dealing with difficult behaviour so if you have any work issues, I can help you with those too. I am well informed around assertiveness skills and combine this with confidence building.
