About me and my therapy practice

By exploring and discussing whatever feel relevant to you, we can pick up on common themes which may be having an impact.  This can bring healing, clarity and lead to choice.

I work with the person-centred approach as a foundation to all sessions and draw on experience of transacional-analysis and relational theories mainly to produce an eclectic style to suit the individual. 

I have almost 10 years experience of working with a wide range of people including those and their families effected by sexual abuse in childhood, sexual exploitation, domestic abuse, bullying at work, anxiety, de-personalisation effects of social media, difficult relationships, adoption, acceptance of change, how to make decisions, and coping with loss (to name a small selection).

I work face-to-face in my small studio or through Skype, Zoom or Microsoft Teams.

Practice description
