We all face difficult times throughout our lives and sometimes we feel stuck. Seeking help is a good indication of wanting to improve. Working together we will look for ways to overcome the obstacles and find emotional balance again. In therapy, I use an integrative approach, which involves the use of a variety of methods in my practice. These include person-centered, solution-focused brief therapy, and cognitive behavioral therapy, among other approaches.

TLDR - I mostly work with people dealing with anxiety, depression, and/or OCD stuff/intrusive thoughts, to better understand what's happening and find ways to improve things. I continue to learn to better support the people I work with, particularly around gender, sexuality and relationship diversity, and neurodiversity.

I offer a safe and facilitative space for you to think about what you need in order to feel better. An important part of that process is the relationship we develop and I will be with you each step of the way. I will listen, empathise, wonder with you, as well as laugh, cry, and get angry. Life is incredibly difficult at times. We could most likely all benefit from a space where we can share ourselves, our thoughts and feelings, and be shown acceptance. More than that, be shown care and understanding of what we are going through. If you feel that you would benefit from that kind of space, then please get in touch.

Therapy is about understanding, developing and changing. I am a clinical psychologist with many years experience of working with adults. I assist people to identify what the core issues are, understand how these have arisen, and then develop skills and tools to make the changes they want to make. I work with people with anxiety and anxiety disorders, low mood, low self-esteem, low confidence and those living with the effects of traumatic experiences. I also offer comprehensive assessments for those who have yet to fully understand what is happening for them, to help move them on in their lives.

Sometimes we find ourselves struggling with issues that are too difficult or confusing to talk about with people we know. At these times, talking confidentially to someone and really feeling heard can be the first step towards changes that we cannot make alone. I offer a safe and supportive space, working alongside you to explore your concerns and feelings at your pace. I believe that being seen and accepted within a genuine, therapeutic relationship can be transformative, enabling a deeper understanding and self-acceptance to move forward.

The protective power of arts in health and mental health has been with us for millennia and today is evidence based. Daily life's emotional demands often go unnoticed and coping with anger, fear and sadness is socially accepted to happen in silence. Nourishing and protecting our mental health can get easily neglected. Although family and friends can play a wonderful supportive role in times of need they may not be enough in times of crisis. Making the choice to look after our mental health is our first step to personal growth. Making art is creative and fun. Being part of a supportive and safe group is therapeutic.
