About me

Most people benefit from an opportunity to talk about difficulties they are experiencing or have experienced in their lives. Psychotherapy is a helping relationship that gives you the space to think about yourself, your life and the problems you may be facing. Through shared exploration you may find relief from recurring problems and live your life more fully. This is a process of change, as well as of understanding.

I am experienced in working with a diverse range of people with a variety of concerns, all seeking to change something in their life.

My experience is in the public and private settings with a range of issues including; trauma, PTSD, eating disorders, self-harm, depression, relationship issues, childhood abuse, low self-esteem, work-related issues I work with adults and young people who come with a wide variety of issues and concerns including anxiety, depression, grief, trauma, eating issues, isolation, low self-esteem or just feeling stuck and wanting more out of life. Further details of my qualifications can be found on my website.

How I Work

I am integratively trained which means that I draw on a variety of theories and techniques to offer personalised support to each individual client.. I offer both short-term solution-focused counselling and longer term, more in-depth psychotherapy. We can discuss what might be most appropriate for you when you first get in touch.

I prioritise establishing a safe, trusting, mutually respectful and collaborative alliance in which we can together explore whatever issues have contributed to your decision to seek therapy at this time.
