About me and my therapy practice

I believe therapy can offer a safe space for self-discovery that provides you with an opportunity to creatively discover how you want to live. I am particularly inclined to listen to how an individual describes their world, as I believe each person experiences life in a unique way that can rarely be communicated to someone else.

As a psychotherapist, I have worked in settings with clients from the most varied backgrounds, who came to therapy for many reasons, including depression, the breakdown of a relationship, grieving, general anxiety and anxiety about specific topics such as their relationships, careers and health. As much as family and friends may want to help their loved ones in such a situation, it can be challenging as it can put undue stress on their relationship. The fee for individuals is £70.

For couples:

My experience working with couples has included the following: emotional and physical intimacy difficulties, separation/divorce - including couples with children, infidelity, grieving and excessive use of anger.

I can facilitate a dialogue when communication has broken down, with the aim of re-establishing a common ground to resolve the issue. I appreciate how difficult it may be to open up to a third person, and I will endeavour to make this process as comfortable as possible by checking in with both of you throughout our sessions. The fee for couples is £120.

Feel free to contact me with any questions you may have about my work or to book an appointment.
