About me and my therapy practice

You may be feeling anxious or depressed, lonely or confused, and not sure of where to turn. These feelings may be negatively impacting on your behaviours, life, and your relationship with yourself/others. I am a fully qualified Integrative Psychotherapist and can help you with acknowledging, understanding and accepting your thoughts behaviours and emotions, and working through how to change these to enable you to progress and feel fulfilled within your life.

I 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. Therefore I incorporate different approaches to understand your internal life script, your attachment and personality style, and your relational developmental needs to support you in making satisfying changes in relationship with self/others. I believe that a healthy therapeutic relationship is essential to enable change for individuals and therefore alongside my theoretical knowledge I use my intuitive self to support you with your transition to becoming a healthier version of yourself, holding in mind your goals and best interests.

My aim is to listen to and understand your needs and 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 in a safe, confidential space for us to take our time to work through your challenges and try new ways of coping, relieving those troubling emotions.

I am located in central Preston, Lancs. Due to Covid19 restrictions all sessions are online:video currently. When restrictions lifted I do have free parking available at practice. I looking forward to hearing from you
