Are you looking for a safe space to explore sensitive issues? Are you struggling with depression, anxiety, panic attacks or the effects of past trauma?

Hello, I am a family therapist, trained to work with individuals, couples and families. When significant stress arises it can have an adverse impact on our identity and relationships. It can cause distress, uncertainty and dilemmas. Communication can be difficult, making decisions and building trust challenging. It is at these vulnerable times that a family therapist can offer a safe, non judgmental, supportive space to think things through and rebuild meaningful connections. I offer a relationship based therapy that helps people understand themselves better as well as the people they care about.

I believe that we can all be impacted by the things we live through, and it is courageous to try and understand ourselves, our relationships and our experiences more through therapy. I am a registered Clinical Psychologist and I have worked within the NHS for over 10 years. I have worked to support people with depression, anxiety, trauma, physical health difficulties, neuropsychological difficulties and more. I have trained in a range of modalities, such as CBT, Compassion Focussed Therapy, Systemic Therapy and Narrative Therapy. This enables me to integrate different approaches to suit the person I’m working with.

Right now, as you read this, you are likely not in a good place. You may be feeling distressed and hopeless or overwhelmed. This may have been going on for a long time and you may have tried to cope in different ways - but it's no longer working? You have tried talking to friends and family but that isn't working either? Maybe there are things that happened a long time ago in your childhood and this is still affecting you today - therapy can be a place to begin to look at all of this and can be the start of beginning to feel better and with improving self-esteem.

I believe therapy should be all about providing a conducive space where you can talk about yourself and your world, without fear of being judged, and at the same time, you are provided with the opportunity to learn how to make changes to improve your emotional wellbeing. If there's anything you should know about me, it's the fact that I'm ALWAYS on your side. We're on the same team and I'll help you fight the fight together. My job is to help you navigate and overcome some of the most difficult experiences you have had in your life. And I see it as a privilege that I get to be a part of your journey in finding growth.

Does your child challenge you? Not in the ways that others might think... Somehow their behaviour is just... different! But in ways that only you understand. Perhaps your child runs away, doesn't listen, spits, shouts, smears or has frequent "meltdowns". Or perhaps you suspect your child has a condition like Autism or ADHD- maybe they were recently diagnosed. No matter what is underlying your child's challenging behaviour, as parent myself, I want to help you reduce the behaviours so that your child can achieve their full potential!

I have found counselling extremely helpful for myself, when I was studying to become a therapist in the early 2000s, when I qualified, I thought that being a Black male with a lot of life experience, along with the counselling skills I had learnt, I could be of great use of taking people from point A-B in their lives, so far so good I have been able to help many people to find what they were looking for, or what they had lost. This as given myself great rewards in feeling useful to society.

I have worked within fostering and adoption, Couple and family Counselling, Bereavement and Youth Counselling. My experience comes from having worked within a variety of family and child settings, a counselling service for young people, a hospice as a bereavement counsellor, and supporting couples in their relationships. I work with families who foster and the secondary trauma that they can also experience. Although I have been trained in the psychodynamic approach, I work using other models to best suit and help individuals explore and become aware of blocks in their lives, working towards making changes.

Thank you for stopping by. Seeking help can be challenging; there is the worry if the therapist is the right person for you. If you are strong enough to take a look at what is troubling you, or what may come up as you start to think about things beyond the immediate problem. I offer a space where you can take time to unpack what you have held on to for a while. Or what you may have been surprised by recently. Perhaps your dealing with something that has simply left you feeling overwhelmed? In any case, it may come as no surprise to you, but as you read you have made a start; maybe we can see where this opportunity may lead.

I am an integrative psychotherapist, specialising in working with adults (18 years+) with eating disorders and body image problems, as well as with adults with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), often owing to current or historical abuse. I have been in private practice since 2006, and work with individuals, couples and with groups. Aside from these specialisms, I also work with people troubled by all manner of other psychological problems (e.g. depression, anxiety, bereavement, relationship problems, OCD, identity problems, etc.), and I welcome whatever issues a client chooses to bring to therapy.
