Having worked in couple therapy for many years, my main observation is the loss of connection most people feel to their partners. Sometimes, this disconnection may play out as, a general feeling of discontent, or constant arguments, maybe there will be a loss of desire. whatever the issue it can only be fixed by agreeing to reconnect. I believe that couples can make a choice to reconnect. My goal is to take couple on a journey from where they are to reconnection. Finding a level of emotional intimacy that will transcend any present and future challenges to the couple relationship.

We all confront struggles at some stage in our lives, and overcoming these can feel like a challenge. There may be challenges with our internal world, in our relationships, or we may experience a significant life event that means we start to feel ‘stuck’. This can lead to feeling a lack of self-confidence and to feelings of self-doubt. I understand that taking that first step to talk to someone can be difficult, and thus I create a safe space that encourages you to feel supported and heard. I believe in the importance of working alongside you as part of a journey to increased self-development and overall improved well-being.

I am a fully accredited Cognitive Behavioural Therapist with the BABCP.My skills, interests and experience are primarily in eating disorders, depression and anxiety disorders. It is not unusual to feel lost and stuck in your illness, and it can feel anxiety provoking and frightening when initially asking for help. You may feel conflicted about letting go of your illness as you may find it helps and protects you at times - this is not uncommon - and we will spend some time at the start of therapy understanding what is keeping you stuck and working through some of these conflicting feelings in order to decide together the best ways to

Whether you are struggling with emotions, relationships or physiological symptoms of anxiety or depression I can offer a safe space to explore these. You may be struggling to understand why things are so difficult, and may be very critical of yourself, thinking you should be coping better. You might have experienced a traumatic event, or always felt that you don't quite fit in, blaming yourself. You will probably want to improve your life, feel better and return to some previous enjoyable activities. You might want to re-think your values and life goals to shift your future focus to something more rewarding.

Sometimes we struggle with things in our lives that we don't feel we can (or want to) talk to those closest to us about. Sometimes we feel lost, ashamed or want to gain more insight into something. This is where seeing a therapist can help you.

I never set out to work with a specific kind of person, however, around 70% of my clients tend to be women aged between 30 and 45. They worry, feel stressed and not good enough. They often find themselves saying 'what if' all the time having lost their zest for life without any knowledge of why! It might be triggered by past traumatic events, the challenges of juggling life, family or work. These feelings might be a new, unexplained experience or they may have been around for decades. Does this sound like you? Even if this doesn't, you may be like the other 30% of people I work with, and you matter too!

One way to think about looking after your mental health is like servicing a car. You need the right specialist to identify and treat specific problems to get back on the road safely. I am an experienced, part-time lead clinical psychologist in an early intervention psychosis team. You will get a rich understanding of how your problems developed and effective strategies to treat them. I work with anxiety disorders (social, OCD, panic, GAD), PTSD, and depression. I target factors (e.g. fear of failure or the unknown) that fuel multiple issues. These issues can be fuelled across a lifetime by what you say to yourself and do.

I specialise in anxiety, depression, work-related stress, relationship issues, cultural issues, and living with illness. We all face times when we feel confused, stuck or unsure about what to do. During these difficult or uncertain times, talking to someone who listens yet has distance from the issue, can really help. Asking for support is not a sign of weakness. It takes courage to focus on ourselves and the situation so that we can find solutions, make changes and move forwards. I offer compassionate, non-judgmental, confidential yet proactive therapy in a safe and supportive space. I work in the evenings and weekends.

To adapt to you and your situation I integrate various practices, including CBT, ACT , existential, and systemic models.
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.

My main approaches include CBT, Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT), Acceptance Commitment Therapy ( ACT ), Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT) and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR).
As a registered clinical psychologist I have a passion for working with a wide range of emotional and behavioural difficulties, such as fear, anxiety, poor self-esteem, low mood, depression, panic attacks, bereavement, stress, difficulties in adjusting to life events and interpersonal difficulties. I know that deciding to seek help can be difficult, yet living with emotional difficulties can be even more challenging and draining. I want to empower you to find new ways of coping and being. This can mean learning new coping strategies, relating differently to your thoughts and emotions, and being more connected to others.
