About me and my therapy practice
My work is "integrative" which means I combine two theories together whilst working with my clients.
The Psychodynamic theory means looking into the past and identifying patterns of behaviour and triggers for these patterns. Sometimes these patterns keep on repeating themselves and can then cause us anxiety, stress, overwhelm and depression. They can also lead to more serious mental health problems and as such its good to find them and pull them out like weeds.
This Psychodynamic work is always underpinned by the person centred theory that clients need. This includes lots of empathy, and unconditional positive regard to make the client feel like they can really express themselves and become the person they want to become. I believe this is possible for all of us given the right space and a therapist who is truly authentic.

How are YOU feeling?
Have things become too much for you just recently? Are you struggling to cope? Do you find yourself trapped in a loop of negative thinking? Maybe anxiety has become difficult to manage or you feel like you are crashing into a depression?
You’ll be pleased to know that it will pass. The way we engage with the world and our patterns of relating to one another can be changed which can make us happier and calmer. With my help you might find you can start to move into a new phase of your life. Free of the suffering, the negative patterns and any anxiety or depression that you think may be creeping up on you.
It has been proven that the relationship between the therapist and the client can greatly improve the awareness of the client's relationship with others outside of the therapy space.. The work we can do together could change your life.
Things can get better and you have made the first step by thinking of counselling and I applaud you for that.
I offer Therapeutic counselling for lots of people. Some of the issues that I work with are stress, anxiety, depression, isolation, relationship problems, moving house, work issues and many more life problems that interrupt our ability to live a free and happy life. I work online via Skype or FaceTime, you choose.

My first session
The first session is assessment based so I will most likely writing down lots of key bits of information from my client.
Its important to know the date of birth, family history, medications, what experience the client has with counselling, credentials and then some time spent on the presenting issues.
Its this session that gives us both an idea of what working together will look and feel like going forward.
