It’s tough and disorientating at the moment, with the Coronavirus disrupting your plans, aspirations or perhaps your sense of independence, security and relationships. Psychotherapy can help you deal with any anxiety, uncertainty or isolation you may be feeling right now, or even those problems that never really went away and have now resurfaced for you. Or perhaps you’re a frontline worker suddenly going through crisis and trauma. We can work through whatever it is that troubles you safely, securely and confidentially; good therapy can be accessed online but it doesn’t have to feel remote. You’re welcome to contact me to ask any questions you may have and discuss how psychotherapy could work for you.
Life and its pressures can often be daunting and you may feel like there should be more to life. We can all feel like this at times, but change is possible.
Our work can be long term or short term. I am open to whatever you bring, whatever you are going through, and we can explore this together in a sensitive and private setting.
I will work with you person to person, with respect and sensitivity, so you feel truly listened to. Together we can seek to explore what troubles you, make sense of it and reach resolution.
...but bit about me… I am a BACP registered psychotherapist and counsellor with experience of working with a range of issues including anxiety & depression as well as infertility & family issues, bereavement & loss and addiction.
Having worked in a corporate setting, I know the competing demands and tensions life and career can make of you, and I also understand the importance of a welcoming space where you can feel free to be yourself.
My approach: our work can be long term, short term or open ended. My approach is to work with whatever emotional distress you may be going through, or whatever else you need to make sense of. Together, we work through this in an open, sensitive and private setting. I believe a respectful, safe and authentic relationship between client and therapist is key to meaningful therapeutic work.
With you, I aim to explore and reflect on your life on your terms, in a way that means something to you. This approach aims to look at how you feel in everyday life, what your relationships with other people are like and also how you feel about yourself.
I aim to work with you, person to person, respecting your individuality and identity, so you can feel truly listened to.
Together we can work through and explore what challenges you, working out what could be different, and how you could move on again in your life.
