Psychologist, DCounsPsych, CPsychol
I work using a variety of therapy models, including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and person-centred approaches. We will work together to form a safe space in which we can explore your issues and try to help you find a way out of your current difficulties. I view ourselves as constant works-in-progress and understand that sometimes we become stuck in life and unable to find ways forwards. We will work together to discover which approach or approaches best suit you in order to help you become unstuck from your current situation.
Welcome and thank you for looking at my profile. Whether you are feeling depressed or anxious, stuck or confused, I can help you to have a better understanding of yourself so you can begin to consider and perhaps make different choices. In my approach we explore your past and present relationships with people to have a better understanding of what is affecting you. I provide a safe and confidential space where you can talk about your problems. I can help you to gain a different perspective on yourself, which in turn can help you to arrive at your own decisions and conclusions with more clarity and confidence.
Psychologist, PhD, HCPC - Clin. Psych.
I am a thoughtful practitioner with over 30 years of experience. I help adults experiencing emotional distress and mental health difficulties. This might include issues with low mood, anxiety and obsessional thinking, trauma, concerns about self image, identity and relationships. I am integrative and use CBT, narrative and psychodynamic approaches. I am also a qualified in dynamic interpersonal therapy (DIT). I adapt my therapeutic approach to your circumstances and am trained and experienced in working with psychological complexity and at depth if this is what you want and need.
I am an integrative therapist which means I draw on various theories and practices of counselling and psychotherapy as and when they might be useful to you. Perhaps you are struggling with anxiety, depression or a lack of direction in your life. Perhaps you are starting to question some assumptions about yourself and how you have fallen into being as you are. We all, at some point, lose sight of who we are, begin to question our life choices and ask ourselves how we got here. This questioning can be the start of something new and invigorating.

Psychologist, HCPC - Couns. Psych.
Because your history, personality, and circumstances are yours alone, you need a tailored approach to therapy. That said, all clients arrive for their first appointment for more or less the same reasons. You're struggling, and it's painful, and change feels so necessary and yet so impossible. You've tried to fix things, but nothing has worked, or it's not worked for long. You're tired of feeling like this, don't like it when you react like this, don't want to feel at war with life, or work, or other people, or your own mind anymore. You're out of ideas and want help to find a better way.

I provide a safe, gentle and non judgemental space to talk. As an integrative counsellor, I accept that as individuals we are all unique and have different needs when seeking therapy and support.

Is online therapy a good option?

To find a therapist who provides telehealth services to clients in your area, click “Online Therapy” on the directory homepage and search by your city or town or your postcode.
What’s the difference between a psychologist, a therapist, and a counsellor?
Therapists, psychologists, and counsellors are all licensed mental health professionals. In many countries, psychologists have earned a doctoral degree. The terms “therapist” and “counsellor” are used somewhat interchangeably, but generally therapists offer longer-term, mental health care, while counsellors offer shorter-term care that may focus on one domain, such as marriage, career, or academic challenges.
What type of therapist is right for me?
Clients should consider factors such as insurance coverage and their primary reason(s) for seeking therapy to determine the type of professional best suited to their needs. Someone struggling with mental health challenges such as depression or anxiety, for example, may wish to seek out a clinical psychologist or therapist, while someone navigating career obstacles or marital upheaval may benefit from seeing a counsellor who can offer short-term, targeted support.
Is everyone in the Psychology Today Therapy Directory a licensed therapist?
The Psychology Today directory lists providers who offer legitimate mental health services to the public, including psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, and counselors. Many have been licensed by the country where they practice; providers whose license or primary credential has been verified by Psychology Today are signified by a “Verified” symbol. Some clinicians or organizations provide services for which their state or country does not offer licenses, such as pastoral counselling. They may be selectively included without the “Verified” seal.
What type of therapy is right for me?
The type of therapy best suited to a particular individual depends on several factors, including their primary reason for seeking therapy, their preferred timeline (some therapy types last for a set number of sessions, while others are open-ended), and their personality and preferences—some may prefer a more structured approach. For many individuals, multiple types of therapy could provide a good fit.
Is online therapy cheaper than in-person therapy?
Many therapists charge the same amount for online therapy as they do for in-person therapy—though clients may still find this cost-effective if it cuts down on their transportation costs. Health insurance plans often offer equivalent coverage for online and in-person therapy; indeed, in many places, they are legally required to do so. Text-based or on-demand therapy apps may be cheaper than traditional one-on-one psychotherapy; however, the practice may be less effective and is not likely to be covered by insurance.
