Anxiety and depression are part of being human. Sometimes it makes sense why we feel like this; sometimes it doesn't. The important thing is to understand what we need to change. Actions, thoughts, and deep seated beliefs might need to change before we can feel good again. I work to help you to understand yourself, then identify specific strategies for change so you can leave anxiety and depression, unhappiness generally, behind. I believe therapy should aim high, at happiness, not just at alleviation of mental distress.
I've been a clinical psychologist for many years and so have the experience to know what tools, techniques, strategies are likely to work best for you. More than that, though, I am easy to connect with, easy to talk to, and so I use techniques in a safe and understanding atmosphere where you will feel understood and supported, no matter what.
I'll use my skills and experience to help you understand yourself, and make the changes you need to live fully and joyfully again.

Depressed and /or anxious mood is the main reason people come to see me. Too much fear, often for good reason. Not enough hope and happiness; also understandable. Mostly its easy to work out what's hurt or stunted you. Finding a treatment strategy that works for you is my part (perhaps ACT, EMDR, or CBT). Then your thinking and your actions out in the world need to change. Do-able steps tho.
