I know that for some, visiting a psychologist can be daunting - I am a strong believer in breaking down the traditional barriers of psychology. So often we are faced with images of serious and intimidating looking people, in even more intimidating looking suits and told that they’re going to be the professional looking after our mental health. It is my mission, to offer therapy in an approachable, personable and jargon-free environment - one where you feel safe, cared for and understood.

Are you feeling tired, stuck or overwhelmed? Do you feel like intense and uncomfortable emotions are getting in the way of you living the life that you want? At some point in their lives, all men go through all these feelings, but they’re often conditioned to hold them in, push through their pain and ignore and deny all normal feelings of stress and fear. Sometimes though, you need a space where you can just be honest, just let everything out, and really just be yourself.
I take a collaborative approach to therapy, in which we work together on a project to address the core concerns. I am trained as a clinical psychologist in several evidence-based therapies, including Cognitive Therapy (CBT), trauma therapy, and Acceptance-Commitment Therapy.
My approach to therapy is to use an integrated model because every person I work with is a unique individual with their own set of circumstances. I'm open minded, non judgemental and interested in helping clients to explore the contents of their hearts and minds to better understand their internal struggles, interpersonal relationships and how they exist in the world.

Few sail through life without encountering obstacles of one sort or another. For the most part we adjust to challenges or emotional upset using our own internal healing systems. Occasionally though, we just can't find a way through the pain and can't understand what went wrong. At these times it is really helpful to talk with someone who is trained to notice the emotions behind your words, and it is by noticing these emotions solutions to your troubles can be found.
