About me

I am a fully qualified and experienced Counselling Psychologist, Integrative Psychotherapist, and EMDR practitioner.

I work with a wide range of psychological and emotional issues, including complex and single event trauma, anxiety and depression, loneliness and low self-esteem, bereavement, relationship difficulties, self-harm and suicidal thoughts, as well as many others.

I provide a  confidential and non-judgemental space to explore whatever it is that is troubling you, in a way and at a pace that you feel comfortable with.

Therapy is a collaborative process which aims to increase awareness and understanding of your thoughts, emotions and behaviours, and to identify and tackle obstacles that are stopping you from living the life you want to live. Therapy can help to develop and harness the necessary resources in order to make desired changes in your life. It can be both insightful and empowering.

The process and focus of therapy is different for everyone, as we are all unique. As an Integrative Psychotherapist I draw on a number of different therapeutic approaches, which enables me to work flexibly, using my knowledge and skills to focus on your individual needs and goals.

Next steps....

It is important that you feel comfortable with your therapist and for us both to feel that we can work together. The best way to know this is for us to meet. In our initial session we can discuss the difficulties you are facing, what your hopes and expectations are, and how therapy could help. At the end of the session we can decide together how we proceed.

I offer a free 15 minute phone call where we can briefly discuss your situation, answer any questions you may have and arrange an initial session, Please get in touch by email or give me a call and we can go from there.
