I enjoy working with people with a diverse range of issues and am able to draw on knowledge and skills from multiple areas of psychological knowledge and expertise to explore, understand and bring about change to each individual’s particular areas of concern. A ‘formulation’ is a shared understanding of your unique strengths and difficulties which includes an understanding of your early experiences and how these might be impacting on your life now. Working together early on in therapy to create a shared formulation is vital, as it can help us to clearly see where the main issues are and how they might begin to be be remedied.

It can be a great relief to be able to share your worries and stress with someone. We all struggle at times and as much as we would like to talk to our friends or family we feel unable to let them in. Sometimes we feel stuck, alone and not able to find the solution to the problem that's making us unhappy. Being able to talk openly with someone who can support you, without judgement, as you explore your feelings and the circumstances that are causing you stress can make a big difference. You will start to feel in control, see things more clearly and feel more confident to make the changes you want to in your life.
