My core purpose is to increase my clients’ emotional and behavioural mastery of the challenges of change. Change is an unplanned, unexpected event whose impact upon us, our families and our lives is momentous. It may seem to us that the event has shattered our identity and impaired our sense of self-hood and continuity. We may feel as if we no longer recognise ourselves as the person that we were before the change-event occurred.

We are all able to agree that our physical health is variable, but it may be much harder to admit that our psychological health is in constant flux. All too often, we find ourselves buying into the idea of the "stiff upper lip": that "mental health issues" affect only other people - and "weak people", at that! It can be very daunting, therefore, to recognise that we need help and then to take steps to find a professional who will help things improve. I understand those concerns, because I've been there: and I also have experience of the positive effects of psychotherapy - from both sides of the consulting-room!
