About

For 20 years I have trained in and practiced several effective self development and psychotherapeutic approaches, all of which support healing and change. I have worked within the NHS with adults with high levels of mental and emotional difficulties as well as more recently with families, children and adolescents with low to moderate difficulties in anxiety, low mood and behaviour difficulties. My work ranges from a long term psychodynamic approach to short term trauma based EMDR. Both will increase your awareness of how past experience can create unhelpful patterns in our present. Both can transform in a gentle and safe way.
I will normally advise an initial 6 sessions - this often proves sufficient for relatively simple issues. For others, the six sessions offers an introduction to counselling/ therapy, and enables us to assess your needs. At the end of the 6 weeks, we can review the work we've undertaken and decide whether further and more specific work would be beneficial.
We are all different. Some of us need to take our time to slowly explore what has led us to seek support. For others it is clear, from the start what the difficulty is and we want to 'get on with it'. Which ever is true for you I offer a safe space to build your trust in me the practitioner, and crucially trust in your own innate ability to heal.
