Welcome. How can I help? I imagine you might be struggling with anxiety or low mood and experiencing changes in your life that you might be looking for some help with. I am qualified and experienced in dealing with the problems you may be facing from mild to severe. I have been working as a psychotherapist for over 12 years with a wide range of difficulties, my area of particular expertise being trauma. Let me help you.
I will work with you to achieve your goals and start your life moving on again. I work within a Cognitive Behavioural approach (CBT) and this way of working can help you to learn strategies and skills to resolve your problems now and manage any future bumps in the road.
I offer a kind, honest and warm way of being that can allow you to feel comfortable working with your difficulties. If this sounds like the approach you are looking for, please contact me for an initial chat. Thank you.
