As an integrative therapist, I work from a base of person centred therapy but add to that acceptance and commitment therapy, compassion focussed therapy and strengths based positive therapy.
So, you may have reached the point where you are ready to make a change. You may be looking to understand yourself in a deeper way and break free of the patterns of the past. You might be sick of that chest gripping fear of anxiety, or carrying around those weighty chains of depression and you are looking to make that first step towards an easier way of living. There may be trauma from the past that is shadowing your life or you may be struggling with difficult emotions such as anger or grief. Let's take the next step together.

We all have times when we find it hard to cope. Counselling can help you understand why you think, feel and act like you do. It can help you develop positive strategies to get what you want out of life. How we think, feel and behave is part of being human. Problems can arise when we get 'stuck' in negative thought patterns; when our feelings are persistently overwhelming; when our behaviour is self-destructive and doesn't result in us getting what we need; when we worry about the future, dwell on the past and find it hard to live in the present. I believe the most important relationship we have is the relationship with ourself.

Unhelpful thoughts and uncomfortable feelings are part of being human. Sometimes however, we can get stuck in a painful vicious cycle by reacting in unhelpful ways. This doesn’t mean we’re broken. If you’d like to learn new ways of responding to these thoughts and feelings then maybe I can help. I have a lot of experience assessing and treating a wide range of problems using CBT. I use a range of Acceptance & Commitment Therapy and mindfulness tools to enhance and compliment traditional CBT. I find this approach extremely effective in helping people to recognise and break unhelpful patterns, overcome problems and prevent relapse.

You would have the opportunity to do so with me through the use of therapies such as Schema Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Compassion Focused Therapy.
I am a Clinical Psychologist with over 20 years experience, training and working, in the field of psychology and mental health. I specialise in providing psychological therapy online through video chat, telephone, email and instant messaging. As human beings we experience a wide array of emotions and often many struggles. None of us are meant to go through this alone and sometimes we need extra help in the form of therapy. As a fellow human being, I understand this journey. As a therapist, I feel honoured to be able to guide others during difficult parts of their life, whilst providing a space for them to be heard and understood.

Depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties, illness, bereavement, self-esteem, gender and sexuality, queer identity, life-changes, are just some of the reasons why you may want to try psychotherapy.

With my brother diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia nearly 30 years ago, I have personal experience of the family sacrifices and struggles related to the pain and stigma of mental illness. Having since, committing my life to the improvement of people’s emotional fitness and mental resilience, with support from organisations such as SANE and MIND, my own journey has allowed me to discover the true benefits of therapy first-hand. Personal therapy is proving invaluable for people to manage certain difficult or crisis situations in their lives and so transform their problems into major opportunities for personal growth.

I work with people who are feeling stuck and looking for help to move forward. This could be around difficulty dealing with emotions, self-destructive behaviours, self-criticism or feelings of not being good enough. It could be being held back in life by anxiety, distressing thoughts or compulsive behaviours. It could involve uncertainty around questions of self-identity, relationships or life direction, or just a sense that things aren’t right. Whether these issues are recent or more long-standing, change for the better is possible and therapy can help.

Counselling/ Psychotherapy: Effective counselling reduces confusion, allowing you to make effective decisions leading to positive changes in your attitude, behaviours & overall well-being. The ultimate aim of counselling is to enable you to make your own choices, reach your own decisions & go forward with a greater sense of clarity & self-management. Hypnotherapy & mindfulness can be introduced as a type of complementary therapy in which hypnosis is used to create a state of focused attention and increased suggestibility during which positive suggestions are made to rid you of emotional blockage. Mindfulness keeps us focused
