Is stress the cornerstone of your life? Perhaps you are struggling with a relationship or with your own coping mechanisms. Or you may be looking for new parenting techniques to manage your child's behaviour or anxiety. I help children to build social competencies and relationships. I also work with families to get through a difficult experience or loss or change unhelpful family patterns.

Have you been entertaining the idea of therapy for some time, or is this an impulse search? Have you asked yourself questions such as: “Why me?”, “Who am I?”, “How did I get here?”, “Is this the rest of my life?”, "Is this really happening to me", "Why does this always happen to me?", “How do I get where I want to be?” Have you or others have labelled yourself as "down", "depressed", "anxious" or "stressed"? Are you worried about feeling a certain way, or not living the life you were meant to live? Do you carry on your shoulders more than you bargained for and feel you can't share with anyone? I am here for you.

Much of my work is with depression, anxiety, phobias, OCD, panic, relationships and trauma.
Hi, I hope your search for a therapist is going well. It can be a difficult process, but it is important to find a therapist who feels right for you. The relationship with your therapist is, on average, more helpful than their training and experience. Person-centred therapy is a relationship. It is not dependent on medical diagnoses, yet can help with all conditions. It is as effective as other leading therapies, but uniquely it puts the client at the centre of the process. There is no 'you should do this'. The questions, and the answers, will come from within during our conversations.

Obsessive-Compulsive (OCD) Counsellors

How long does OCD treatment take?

Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is often treated on a weekly or twice-weekly schedule, depending on symptom severity and the client’s preferences. Some clients may start to see a noticeable improvement in symptoms in as little as six weeks, but it’s also possible, especially in more severe cases, for treatment to take several months to a year before significant progress is made.

What happens if OCD is not treated?

Some people with OCD, especially those with mild symptoms, may find that they are able to adapt reasonably well to life with the condition, even if their symptoms never resolve completely. However, many people, particularly those whose symptoms are severe at the outset, find that their obsessions and compulsions grow more intrusive with time, making it harder to maintain relationships, hold down a job, or navigate the world successfully.

Are there medications for OCD?

Medication can be used to treat OCD. The class of drugs most often prescribed are selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors, or SSRIs, which include fluvoxamine, fluoxetine, and sertraline, among others. In cases of treatment-resistant OCD, other classes of medication, such as tricyclic antidepressants or atypical antipsychotics, may be prescribed. Medication is frequently used in conjunction with therapy.

Can OCD come back after treatment?

Yes. Major life transitions, periods of stress, or other factors can cause symptoms to return or, if they were never fully eradicated, to ramp back up in intensity. For some, these relapses are brief and do not require additional treatment; identifying specific triggers and practicing the skills learned in therapy can help speed their course. For others, returning to therapy for a brief period can help address the underlying stress and strengthen coping mechanisms.
