About

You might be coming to therapy because there is a specific situation or issue, that is causing you distress, and leaving you feeling conflicted, or overwhelmed. Or you might come to therapy because you have a sense that your life isn't working out the way that you'd hoped, perhaps there is something missing that you can't put your finger on or put words to. These difficulties could be linked to the way that you see yourself or to patterns in relationships that stop you getting what you want from life. Many difficulties stem not from feelings themselves, but the way that we've learned to manage those feelings or the way we think about those feelings. Therapy provides a safe space to think together about the issues that you face. It is very much a two-way relationship, in which we work together to understand what the underlying difficulties are. We all have a story inside our heads about who we are and who the world is and that story affects how we interpret what is happening in the here and now. Understanding this story can help you to react to the present moment more creatively and with more of a sense of choice.
I have worked as clinical lead in a range of settings and have experience in working with many different issues, symptoms and psychiatric disorders. This experience enables me to help you to get to the heart of your difficulties and to help you to understand the underlying cause. Most of us would change if we could and therapy can help to understand the things that we're not aware of that stop us from living life more fully and feeling better about ourselves.
The thought of seeing a therapist can feel quite daunting. I am here to help and support you with every step of the journey. The first step is usually for us to have a talk over the phone and this is a chance for you to ask any questions that you might have. The next step is for us to meet for an initial session. This is an opportunity to talk through what you're hoping to get from therapy and to explore how it could help you. It is important that you feel that I am the right person for you and so you're welcome to go away and think about things before deciding to work together.
