About me and my therapy practice

Perhaps you find yourself here because you're not feeling like yourself anymore. You may be feeling lost, stuck, overwhelmed or heavy. Maybe you're sick and tired of feeling sick and tired, or find there is little joy in life. We can often experience issues in life that result in us feeling anxious, trapped, depressed or fearful. 

You might already have an idea what started these feelings. An event in your life such as a bereavement or trauma that you can't seem to move forward from, something that is now holding you back. For some people these feelings become so painful they find their own ways to handle them. This might be avoiding situations, addictions, over eating or for some people they may be expressed in the body in the form of illness. You may recognise these things yourself. 

Using a variety of therapeutic approaches I work with you to find a way through what you are experiencing. You may have already tried other things to help you through. Many clients have tried exercise, diets or talking therapies as a way of managing before coming to see me, some have tried nothing at all. I specialise in working with health issues and medically unexplained symptoms- those things that are felt in your body that don't seem to get any better no matter what you try. 

I'm an integrative relational therapist and I believe that no matter how deep the issue or how long you have struggled, it is possible to heal from it. Often things seemingly long forgotten from childhood can be influencing us now. We’ll work together to explore what is going on for you and what this may be rooted in. Our work together will help you to identify what you need and you will be supported to learn more about yourself and how to manage the difficulties you face. 

I work from a beautiful, newly refurbished therapy room in Saltaire and offer flexible appointment times with some evening and weekend availability.
