About me and my therapy practice

My approach is down-to-earth. I offer a style of therapy developed as I completed my training as a therapist, one that continues to develope with ongoing training and one that delivers warmth, real interest with compassion and enough challenge to keep the mind stimulated and supported. It is essential that your objectives are met. After all, it's your time and your money.

Counselling and Psychotherapy are sometimes called talking therapies, and therefore most of the time the therapy sessions will feel like a good conversation with the normal questions, responses and stories but with the added benefit of good listening. Each session is personalised to match your explicit and implicit needs.

Our sense of identity and self-worth often rests on the strength of our relationships and we may despair when they fail. Our ways of relating are learned at a young age in the family in which we grew up and we can become stuck in unhealthy habits that restrict our lives.

Under pressure we often revert to familiar patterns. Self-respect and liking oneself are the most important ingredients for any good relationship. Therapy can offer the chance to examine our patterns of interacting with those around us to allow us to lead healthier and happier lives.
