About me and my therapy practice

You may be feeling anxious or depressed, lonely or confused, and not sure of where to turn. I am a qualified Integrative Psychotherapist and can help you with where you are at.

It can be daunting looking for a therapist, and you have taken a brave step in starting your journey; to making a change; recover and to heal from the challenges you have been facing. I work holistically with people, and believe that everyone is unique and therefore being integrative enables me to work individually with you and tailor support dependant on what it is that you are bringing/needing from me within therapy.

My interest is in the developmental-relational needs of the other. I use multiple approaches; object relations, TA, and self psychology, to create understanding of both internal/external barriers, both conscious and becoming aware of the unconscious, to enable the opportunity of making satisfying changes in relationship with self/others. This is achieved within a therapeutic relationship; with myself. I use both my theoretical expertise alongside my intuitive self, to support you with your transition to becoming a healthier version of yourself.

I offer support to those experiencing a range of difficulties which may be distressing/preventing someone to move forward and live a healthy life. I aim to work through your distresses with you, build your self-esteem and empower you to flourish in your life. I offer a warm, friendly, genuine approach and a safe, confidential space for us to sit together and take our time to work through things. Together we can explore your feelings to understand yourself/others better, and find new ways of coping, and relieve those troubling emotions you have been feeling.

Located in central Preston, Lancs. Free parking, and flexible apts avail. More information can be found about me/my services on my website. I looking forward to hearing from you
