About me and my therapy practice
I am an experienced, open-minded and non-judgmental therapist with over 20-years experience working in mental health. I firmly believe in the positive impact weekly psychotherapy can have upon your life. It is hugely beneficial for anyone suffering from anxiety, low mood, relationship difficulties, depression, poor self-esteem or other problems in living.
I see psychotherapy as a conversation about the challenges of living, aimed at understanding our inner lives, and how patterns of relating in early life can impact our present; perhaps leading to unhelpful ways of relating towards ourselves and others.
Psychotherapy is invaluable, enabling you to discover who you are and why you interact with people in the way that you do. It can help to gain insight into self-limiting patterns and open up new ways of thinking, and bring about change and personal growth.
It can address discontent and unhappiness in your life as a journey towards personal growth.
I welcome any enquiries in absolute confidence, we can discuss how psychotherapy might help you, and perhaps arrange an initial consultation to consider how well we might be matched to engage with a rewarding psychotherapeutic relationship.
