About

We are all unique and as such a ‘one size fits all’ approach to therapy is inappropriate. The use of diagnosis and labels can be helpful to inform the most useful interventions, however my years of working with people have shown that every person needs to be seen as an individual with their own combination of life experiences, circumstances, capacity and goals. Therapy is successful when the following conditions are met : trust and honesty are vital; an initial goal-focussed plan is needed, however this should be dynamic and client led with the understanding that review and change are required to achieve the results you deserve.
Feedback from clients over the years suggests that my approach is unique. Every person is treated with respect and rather than being directive, I strive to support each person to find their innate strength and capacity to figure out what is going on for them and how to improve their enjoyment and quality of life. Hope, strength and resilience are key.
I have seen the enormous damage and challenges that we have experienced living through the trauma of COVID. As such, my approach to therapy has adapted to support you in dealing with unprecedented events and their impact. To me, my work is not a job but rather it is a privilege to have the opportunity to walk with you along your life’s journey.
