That is why I provide a safe, confidential, and non-judgemental space to support the challenges you might be encountering. Whether you're experiencing depression, anxiety, the complexities of relationships, the effects of past trauma, the weight of grief, or simply seeking to develop a deeper self-understanding and purpose, my approach is tailored to your unique needs.

Hello, it can take tremendous courage to begin counselling. To help, I provide a safe, warm, caring, non-judgemental space where you can explore your current life situation. I am a qualified Psychosynthesis counsellor and member of the BACP. Psychosynthesis is an integrative and transpersonal approach to therapy which views clients as more than the issues they bring to the therapy room. It's an approach which includes the spiritual dimension of life. As a practitioner of Psychosynthesis, I aim to connect clients with their authenticity and what they feel is intrinsically true for them while exploring the issues brought to therapy.

I offer a 15-minute complimentary phone call to establish your reasons for coming to therapy. I like to work with your therapeutic goal in mind and every 4-6 weeks we will have a review to ensure that therapy is fulfilling the therapeutic goal. Sharing your thoughts and feelings with a therapist can help you in making sense of challenging experiences and support you in personal growth and self-awareness. I like to work with Intergenerational patterns in mind and I am interested in the messages we receive from the body looking at somatic exercises and breath work supporting you in releasing tension, stress and anxiety.

I am a psychoanalytic psychotherapist working with adults and couples. My clients usually seek help for specific reasons such as panic attacks, physical pain or discomfort without apparent medical reason, phobic anxieties or problems with eating, sleeping or sexuality. At other times help is sought because of more general underlying feelings of depression or anxiety, difficulties in concentrating, dissatisfaction in work or inability to form satisfactory relationships.

Each person is unique and distinctive and therefore one approach may not fit them all. I place the client-therapist relationship at the heart of an effective therapeutic process providing an honest and non-judgmental stance where your feelings can be expressed and contained in a safe and confidential setting. You might want to make sense of the past and explore how it can sometimes be reconstructed in the present or you might seek to get back in touch with your real self through acceptance and a better mind-body connection.

Do you want to talk to someone impartial about your difficulties? If you feel stuck in your life, psychoanalytic psychotherapy will help you to bring about change. I believe everyone should be listened to especially when experiencing emotional distress. I have experience working with people dealing with depression, anxiety, various forms of trauma, as well as broader questions around identity, sexuality and relationship issues. I am interested in a reflective approach to the meaning of life in addition to questions around human suffering, drawing on many years of studying philosophy and psychoanalysis.

It is hard when you're not feeling at your best - whether it be a low mood, feeling vulnerable, anxious, or lonely - to even get through the day, never mind having a good one. Maybe you're not getting enough support, or even the right kind of support form your friends and loved ones. Talking to a counsellor is different, as it offers an alternative environment to everyday life - free from judgement - and experience being accepted and understood. Under such conditions, when enough trust is built, we will hopefully be able to explore your material and work through whatever is getting in the way, while increasing your self-awareness.

Are you feeling helpless, hopeless, frustrated with life, others or your self? Does life feel like too much at times? Do you find yourself wondering what is the point? Are you anxious? worrying about things that have yet to happen. Dealing with difficult feelings can feel overwhelming and may seem as if you have nowhere to turn or no way out. Deciding to see a counsellor can be a scary thought, thinking about discussing, with a stranger, private and sensitive subjects or even things that may feel shaming. However, making the decision to start therapy can be the first step to empowering yourself to make changes in your life.
