About

I'll help you find a way through whatever is bothering you by teaching you a whole different way of relating to your problems that will be a total relief. The changes you make will be lasting, life-enhancing and uniquely yours. You may have never had therapy, or be like many of the people I work with and have seen lots of other therapists before, but nothing has really stuck. It could be a familiar old depression feeling creeping back in, you might be really unsure how you will get through this social isolation period without your eating disorder getting out of hand, whatever it is, I can help.
I specialise in a kind of therapy called Focusing-Oriented Psychotherapy that taps into how your body responds when you talk about what's happening as a way to find out more, and eventually a satisfying solution. What works best about this style is that the answers come from you, and in a way that captures exactly what's needed next.
It's really good that you are making moves towards making your life better, that takes guts. You are welcome to give me a call and we can have a free chat about what's happening for you at the moment. You can tell a lot about someone from their voice, so you will probably get a good idea as to whether or not we would be a good fit after we have had a chat.
