Sometimes things in life can start to seem overwhelming; the useful strategies of the past may not be as helpful as they used to; we can find ourselves lost and unsure. This can often lead to added, despair, anxiety, and self-criticism. It can often seem hard to see a way out or to ask for help. You may need someone to listen without judgement and provide insights into understanding patterns in your life. You may also desire strategies to change your actions and the way that you think about things. The way to a fulfilling and valued life is available without a life-long commitment to therapy.

Many people experience emotional difficulties at some point in their lives, triggered by a particular event, or as a result of deeper unidentified issues. Talking to a psychodynamic therapist, in a safe and confidential environment, provides a unique opportunity to identify the themes and patterns of thought and behaviour that can generate emotional distress,. This can involve talking through past experiences and understanding how they impact you today. The relationship with the therapist is important, as it provides an opportunity to examine ways of thinking and relating in the here and now as well as developmental factors.

As an empathic therapist, I am comfortable working both with people in crisis or with longer term problems. Perhaps you feel it is time to look at your life in depth and to understand yourself better. Or you may simply wish to access support and to unburden your worries, in confidence. I am particularly interested in working with complex cases and those looking to question taboos. I have worked for nearly twenty years with individuals fostering a happier, healthier mindset and for six years in a solely psychotherapeutic capacity.  I work in university counselling and previously as a psychotherapist in the NHS as well as privately.

HAT Psychotherapy is a partnership of experienced therapists, providing high-quality remote therapy - either online, or on the telephone, as you prefer. We understand your time is precious and offer you support at times which best suit your needs. In addition, we enable you to "pay it forward": because for every session you have with us, we'll fund a session for someone who is unable to meet the cost of his/her own therapy and whose needs cannot be met by the NHS. We've come across and dealt with most issues, over the years, so, whatever it is which is concerning you, why not speak to us about it?

With a range of clinical skills including EMDR alongside a long-standing experience in working with adults suffering from a range of trauma-related psychological difficulties, I can help you overcome the complex and debilitating impact of trauma. If you have intense feelings of anxiety or fear; struggle with bereavement and loss or have complicated grief reactions, have symptoms of PTSD or have experienced early life trauma safely designed EMDR can be transformative. There is evidence that EMDR also helps prevent the development of PTSD if you have experienced a recent traumatic event or you are struggling with ongoing stress.

We can sometimes feel like we are struggling and can't see the way out. Everything seems to be going terribly wrong and you feel hopeless. I have worked with many clients with different types of anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties and trauma and living like this can be a truly overwhelming and exhausting ordeal. But this feeling, does not have to be for ever. It can change, sometimes all we need is a nudge and some tools to move to a better place.
