There are times when we struggle to function, when we face emotional challenges and life issues can feel overwhelming. Often we can get through this alone but there are times when we can benefit through the support of psychotherapy or counselling. You might be faced with stress, trauma, mood disorder, addictions, family issues or breakdown, bereavement or issues in your relationship. Difficulties in childhood may be causing emotional pain right now. Maybe there has been past abuse, bullying, domestic violence or repeating patterns that you simply can’t make sense of.

I never thought I would need therapy. My relationship with my wife was great. I was the managing director of a successful company. Then life got tough and we found ourselves in crisis. Going to couple therapy together saved our marriage! We’ve been back to therapy many times to keep our relationship on course. What I learned from our couple therapy and my years of one-to-one psychotherapy transformed my marriage and my life. The results of the therapy impressed me so much I decided to change career. I wanted to offer the valuable insights and knowledge I had learned to other individuals and couples in distress.

I view therapy as a unique form of conversation. It may begin tentatively, or it may begin with overwhelming feelings. People seek therapy for many reasons, and sometimes those reasons change during the course of therapy. You might initially need support in the midst of a crisis; sometimes a long-standing issue has reached a point where you feel you can’t carry on as things are; or you might come purely because you would like to discover more about yourself.

Whether you are seeking short term counselling, or longer term psychotherapy, together we can explore whatever may be troubling you. Perhaps you are in need of a sympathetic person to talk to, someone who will listen without judgement to any difficulties you are experiencing in your life or relationships. You may be suffering from low self-esteem, or unexplained panic attacks. I will work with you in the way that suits you best.
