Whether you are looking for therapy for a particular issue or wanting long-term therapy, talking to someone can be a powerful and life-changing experience and at the same time taking the first step can be one of the most daunting things one can think of doing. I believe in empowering you to discover the skills to achieve a sense of inner balance by relying on all the resources you possess through body, spirit, mind, and emotion. My approach incorporates various forms of psychotherapy to aid you in becoming your own therapist for your particular circumstances, experiences, and environment.
If you are struggling with depression, anxiety and panic attacks, abuse, trauma, loneliness, stress, work and career issues, burnout, addiction, bereavement, grief, difficult emotions (anger, frustration, despair) or relationship problems, I can offer you the support you need.
Training, qualifications & experience
My therapeutic approach as a Counselling Psychologist and Positive Psychotherapist is integrative and I draw from Psychodynamic, Humanistic and Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT). I also have a keen interest in Mindfulness Meditation and Art Therapy.
I have experience working in the NHS, voluntary organisations and in private practice. The knowledge gained from this provides me with the appropriate skills to deal with a wide variety of issues. Whether you are struggling with relationship problems, depression, anxiety, trauma or abuse I can offer you the support you need.

Most people feel anxious at their first meeting with a therapist. This is perfectly normal. I understand how difficult it is to make this decision and I will provide a space where you can feel heard, understood, secure, safe and welcomed. I will explain how therapy works; we will discuss confidentiality, safety, privacy, previous experience of therapy (if any). Please ask as many questions as you like. It is important for me that you feel comfortable and relaxed.
Usually the first sessions are about understanding the reasons you decided to seek therapy, so I will ask questions and try to gather as much information as possible so that I can properly understand your concerns.
Please contact me to discuss the first appointment and any questions you might have.
