Life begins on the other side of despair” Jean-Paul Sartre.

I believe each of us is unique with the potential for growth and development and can move forward in our own way. Your motivation to change and our client therapist relationship provides a space for healing.

Practice description

I am a humanistic-existential pscyhotherapist integrating interventions including cognitive behavioural therapy [CBT], schema therapy, dialectical behaviour therapy [DBT], transactional analysis [TA], psychodynamic, person-centred, gestalt, transpersonal and mindfulness based approaches. 

Offering a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space where you can share and explore present and past experiences, express thoughts and feelings gaining personal awareness, enjoy a better quality of life, robust mental health, improved well-being and positive relationships with friends, parents, siblings, children and work.

“Life begins on the other side of despair" Jean-Paul Sartre.

I believe each of us is unique with the potential for growth and development in order to become assertive and move forward in our own way. Your motivation to change and our client-therapist relationship provides the relational space for healing.

My first session

How do I begin therapy?

If you wish to begin therapy, the first courageous step is to make contact and arrange a time that we can talk through your concerns. This one hour "Assessment Appointment" is a starting point for the process. Assessment is not clinical in the same way as attending a GP or hospital, neither is it interrogative, intrusive or invasive. 

The space provided is simply to understand your history leading up to choosing to seek help and provides a platform for us to decide how best we might work together going forwards. We will cover confidentiality [NB Notes are not stored online. Notes are handwritten, stored and securely archived] and you will receive a clear overview of the options available discovering and clarifying the therapeutic process. 

If we choose to continue, review takes place approximately every six weeks.
