MTS Psychotherapy

About me

I offer psychological support in person and also via video apps.

My clients come to me from all walks of life and have experienced trauma recently and/or in the past. This has resulted in my clients suffering from intense anxiety and fears and/or severe depression as well as relationship difficulties. My clients can feel stuck, vulnerable and helpless, which has such a disabling impact on their lives.

What to expect during the initial therapeutic consultation

Clients, who enquire about a course of psychotherapy usually contact me via e mail or phone. This follows an initial therapeutic consultation, which is an important step for the client as this often can be very daunting. During this consultation we establish how I can offer psychological help and an overview of this type of therapy. The client has the space to talk about the reasons for their referral and we explore options available to offer a way forward in view of their psychological distress. There is no commitment to commence therapy at the end of this contact. It is vital that the client feels safe and has a sense of being listened too. When the client decides to engage in therapy, we discuss the potential focus and length of therapy, including regular evaluation of the effectiveness of attending psychotherapy.

How attending a course of psychoanalytic therapy can help

I have the ability to initiate and maintain a confidential therapeutic relationship, where my clients feel safe, experiences hope and a reduction of their psychological symptoms. My clients leave therapy feeling empowered and able to manage life's stresses.

Professional background information

I have over 25 years experience working in NHS and independent mental health services hospitals and community services. My experience is working with clients, who experience a range of mental health conditions. My areas of expertise is recurrent anxiety, depression, past and recent trauma related to abuse, relationship problems, self-harm and self-esteem.

Treating my clients with respect and dignity is vital to me and making a positive difference to their lives. I am passionate about mental health and reducing stigma. It's important to convey hope and that help is available. Letting people know that they do not have to suffer in silence when experiencing mental health issues.
