About me and my therapy practice

How I work includes the understanding that unhelpful thoughts patterns can have a powerful effect on us. They shape our emotional states, behaviours and moods.

By becoming more familiar with our habitual, automatic and unhelpful thinking patterns we can change the processes that lead us into downward spirals of low mood and anxiety or the repeating conflict in our personal and professional relationships.


Practice description

My intention is to engage you in a dialogue were you can tell me in your own words, what it is exactly you feel needs to change, and what those changes might look like.

At a pace that's right for you, I will help you develop perspective on your habitual, automatic and unhelpful behaviours. This provides a greater sense of clarity and manageability.

I'll support you in developiing alternative, more skilful stratergies that can free you from the tyranny of the old, familiar and automatic paterrns. With greater freedom you are more likely to successfully realise the changes your seeking.
