About me and my therapy practice
It takes a great deal of courage to acknowledge we may need some assistance, especially with our mental health.
In our most trying moments, the prospect of exploring our emotions can feel overwhelming and scary. If you are considering seeking help, know that facing our vunerability is often half the battle and desiring a better future is (regardless of how small) a hopeful place.
In my work, I am respectful of each person's process in therapy and work closely to ensure you feel a deep sense of being understood, believed in and hold the hope for your future.
In working with me, you will find an empathic, trustworthy, competent and sensitive psychotherapist who wants to see you succeed and will maintain a hopeful view for your future.
We are currently living in a very anxious time. Many of us (youth & adults) are suffering from increased anxiety, isolation, fear for the future, depression, grief/loss, relationship struggles, increased stress at home and at work, unemployment and so on. I am here to offer empathy & support, provide skills to utilise in your everyday experience that will help you to manage your struggles more effectively.
I believe strongly in the need to de-stigmatizing mental illness and mental health challenges and advocate for my clients at all times.
My psychological background is thorough and I work from a psychodynamic perspective, utilising various tools from an array of theories to best suit your needs.
I am a psychotherapist in private practice based in Portishead.
I work with youngsters, adults and families and offer a comfortable space for you to explore the challenges you face.
My first session
At our first initial meeting we will use the opportunity to get to know each other and see if we would work well together. You are ultimately in the drivers seat and we will work at your pace.
Some background information will be helpful in learning more about you and what you hope to gain in therapy and this will come about as we explore your needs and goals.
