How Therapy Can Help
People come to see me due to a range of reasons and although each individual’s area of concern may differ, the common wish is to bring about a change in their life, recognising that they have become stuck, unable to move forward.
As a first step we can have a free initial chat about why you are seeking therapy at this time in your life and how we can work together. Email me so we can set up a time to talk.
Why Engage With Me
I view my relationships with the people I support as shared endeavours, together we will discuss your individual challenges and explore where you are today and how you can step into the life you want to live. We will discuss the areas you would like to focus and discover what is blocking you.
I am a non-judgemental practitioner, who works relationally and will provide you with the confidential, professional support you need.
What to Expect From Our Sessions
Our therapy sessions will give you time and space to work through the unaddressed challenges you are currently facing, some of which may be outside of your current awareness. Within a safe and confidential space, we will work together to explore and process your experiences, feelings, fears, hopes and dreams, so that you can better own who you are today and sow the seeds in the here and now to create the life you want for your future.
Training, qualifications & experience
My Professional Background
Since 2004 I have worked therapeutically with people across a spectrum of challenges such as stress, anxiety, bereavement, abuse, trauma, work-related issues, self-esteem and confidence, relationship problems, issues of difference, life transitions. I have therapeutically connected with people from a broad range of backgrounds, age groups and ethnicities. Throughout my therapy career I have gained the experience of working within multi-disciplinary teams, across a range of different environments, such as public health, education, mental health, charitable organisations, creative and communication specialists.
I am qualified to a masters level in Integrative Psychotherapy. I am a registered psychotherapist with the UKCP and abide by their professional codes of conduct.
