Hello, I'm Beth - a warm welcome to you. You might be here because you’ve been feeling stressed, in pain, and overwhelmed by life; or perhaps you've been feeling lost, stuck, or unhappy. When things are out of balance, you may find yourself struggling with sleep, headaches, and other bodily pains, or feeling weighed down by anxiety, low mood, or frustration that gets in the way of the things that are important to you. Sometimes struggles have been present or building up for some time (and may or may not be related to past or early life trauma). Or it may be that recent life events are affecting your emotional and physical wellbeing.

Seeking therapy is often not an easy decision. Some may have very clear goals of what they would like to work on, whilst others may feel like there is too much to unpick and they don't know where to start. You may worry that it is a Pandora's Box situation and that therapy will open everything up. Many of my clients are experiencing health issues (such as irritable bowel syndrome, inflammatory bowel disease, chronic pelvic pain or interstitial cystitis) that are disrupting their life and making it harder to cope with demands and find enjoyment. Others come to me because of trauma, chronic stress, overwhelm & loss of identity.

I have a particular interest in physical health conditions such as chronic pain and CFS.
I know how difficult it is to find a therapist you can trust for help with your emotional and psychological difficulties. Sometimes our suffering is concealed from friends, family or colleagues because we are good at hiding it but deep inside, we are left feeling far from happy, fulfilled or content. At other times our difficulties are more noticeable. I am passionate about helping people live better lives. I help them discover what matters to them, what type of person they want to be and how they would like to behave. Once their values are clarified I help them make sustainable changes towards the things that are important to them.

My main specialties include body image, eating disorders, chronic pain, depression, psychosomatic problems, grief and loss.
Being a human is difficult. Each and every one of us, at some point in our lives, find ourselves stuck. We realise that this is not the life we planned for, that we are not the people we wanted to be and we are not moving any closer to it. My work focuses on helping people settle into those stuck moments, change their relationship with the uncomfortable thoughts and feelings, and to take steps toward the life that they want. I strongly believe that psychotherapy is not only a place to overcome certain difficulties, but also an opportunity for individuals to get to know themselves better and live a meaningful life.

I coined the term "empathic-mentalisation" to highlight therapist’s skilful ability to connect with his client in a way that would allow the therapist to not just hear and understand (at a cognitive level) patients’ vulnerabilities but instead to allow himself to feel his client’s pain in a way which will help the client.
Sarah is a successful paralegal in the City who struggled with shameful feelings and self-disgust most of her life. Typically as Christmas was approaching and lots of parties invitations started to arrive on her desk, she would surrender into procrastination and self-criticism, in order to avoid a situation she felt likely to fail, supported by an exaggerated set of predictions about social embarrassment or other social disasters. Sarah struggles to improve her confidence and esteem - in spite of a successful academic and professional life. Her efforts are genuine but exhausting and she often is trapped by episodes of depression.
