About me and my therapy practice

Reasons for having Counselling

You might be struggling with your mood – stress, anxiety, fight and flight, overwhelmed.

​You tend to focus on others, and their needs, to the detriment of your own - in your relationships and career.

​Does this lead to confusion, anger, guilt and the need to withdraw?

​It might feel like you’re in a vicious cycle.

​There is a way out.

My approach:

​A solution-focused approach, embedded in well-established therapies – CBT, Psychodynamic therapy and EMDR.

I encourage having clear goals and collaboration for better outcomes.

I specialised in brief therapy, focusing on a particular issue.

When to have therapy?

​Asking for help can be daunting and you might question whether it’s worth the investment of your time and energy as you seem to be managing your everyday life.

Maybe, if you’re really honest with yourself, it feels like going through the motions and not living.

​Imagine one day, looking back at your life – what would your Wise Self advise you to do now?

Practice description

What to expect when entering Counselling

When distressed, we lose the capacity to assess accurately our situation and have a sense of direction. 

I will teach you simple techniques to feel calmer and more grounded.

We will discuss your main goals and how to achieve them.

There is also the opportunity to look at your life journey and identify unhelpful patterns that keep repeating but you do not know how to change them.

Challenge deep-seated beliefs that are blocking you from living a more satisfying and meaningful life.
