I work with a wide range of people some of whom are keen to step into the unknown world of therapy, others who are curious about what change might look and feel like, some who have a sense of reluctance or resistance to change but know something needs to shift in their lives, as well as seasoned therapy veterans looking for a fresh perspective.
LIFE IS HARD. If logical thinking could solve the confusion and distress that comes with it then I certainly wouldn’t be typing this now and you wouldn't be reading it- emotions can sometimes inexplicably take over and leave us feeling at a loss as to what to do or how to help ourselves. If you would like to understand this better and overcome these difficulties then the integrated range of therapy approaches I offer can help. Understanding and then breaking unhelpful cycles which impact how you think, feel and behave and processing difficult experiences from the past which crop up in the present are essential for your well-being.

I have worked for several years emotionally supporting Transgender clients. I have observed that many trans identifying people experience a huge amount of rejection from society, and more painfully, from within their families. I feel that the problem is not likely to be that they are trans, but other peoples attitudes. I have worked extensively with men who identify as "transvestites" or "crossdressers". I have noticed that questions over sexuality are common. I will work with you to find the answers you seek. Whether that’s "Am I Gay or Straight?", "Am I Trans or Cisgender?" or "Does it Really Matter?"

They can be your best friend and your worst enemy at the same time. Eating disorders are primarily coping mechanisms that develop to help you survive. My work has five focuses: Assessment. Stabilisation: We can stabilise anything that feels out of control so that you can focus on recovery. Foundations for Recovery: the building blocks of recovery. Underlying causes: resolving the original cause(s) of your eating disorder. Relapse prevention: helping you to stay healthy.

Are you feeling confused, lost, scared, overwhelmed by your thoughts and emotions? Many people experience the same. Psychotherapy can help you to understand what lies beneath these emotions and support you in bringing balance to your life. I am a psychotherapist with a wide range of experience working with clients (children, adolescents and adults) in various places. In particular, I have worked in-depth with complex trauma, attachment problems, clients who are in abusive relationships with their partners or family and problems related to the body; I use body techniques to help clients to self-regulate states of panic/anxiety.

Psychotherapy can help you with such difficulties as: relationship problems, life transitions, depression, anxiety, identity confusion, and anger. People who engage in individual therapy often speak of improvements in the quality of their relationships, increased confidence and a growing ability to take risks and make changes in their lives. Problems in partner relationships can be complex and sometimes destructive and limiting, with roots in childhood difficulties. Couples therapy seeks to understand the underlying issues and conflicts, resolve difficulties and find an agreed way forward.

Humanistically recognising the needs of an individual ,we see how trauma can be held at a very deep level. Working from the story of an individuals early negative & positive childhood experiences and using Integrative therapy in a number of ways to help the process of getting to one's core beliefs, helps to create a safe space for them to explore and release old patterns. This happens by building a trust with the client to allow their vulnerability to come through. Then, looking at the blocks or defences, via counselling and body Psychotherapy, a unique holistic approach to wellbeing, allows the journey back to health.

Life can be stressful and full of uncertainty, so as a Counselling Psychologist I will use a variety of theories from my years of training and beyond to treat you as a whole person who is more than just their struggles, insecurities and pain. Therapy can help you deeply explore your past or give you tools to cope better in the present. It can allow someone else to understand you so that eventually you can understand yourself. I am a relatable and down to earth person and my aim is to make you feel safe, listened to, valued and understood so that you can build self-awareness, self-compassion and self-acceptance.
