Life can present us with all kinds of challenging experiences. Perhaps you are struggling with anxiety or depression, or feeling stuck or overwhelmed in some way. At such times, therapy can help us navigate through and beyond.
I offer a supportive, confidential environment to explore whatever your concerns are. It is a safe space in which anything can be said without judgement. I do not seek to categorise or diagnose you. Indeed, I do not see you as broken, or in need of a cure as such. I see my role as helping you to make sense of your struggle so that you can move forward and embrace life more fully.
My way of working is gentle but challenging. Therapy is a collaborative journey and I believe that the most important element is a deeply caring, trusting relationship. I will listen and respond with care and compassion while supporting you to deepen your understanding of yourself and the issues you are facing.
And therapy is not just about alleviating suffering, confusion or pain. The challenges we face, however difficult, can also be tremendous opportunities for growth. Working through your struggles can be the start of a new beginning.
I provide an initial session free of charge, which will give us an opportunity to discuss your needs and expectations, and allow us to decide whether to enter into therapy together. If you would like to enquire about an initial session, or if you have any questions, please feel free to get in touch.
I have wide-ranging experience working with all sorts of issues, with adults of all ages and backgrounds. My initial training was in integrative psychotherapy, and I adapt my approach to the needs of my clients. I have also undertaken advanced training in existential psychotherapy.
In addition to my private practice, I worked for several years at a charity providing low-cost, long-term therapy to the unemployed and those on low-incomes. Prior to that I also spent several years working within an NHS IAPT counselling service.
