I work privately Wednesdays and Thursdays. All sessions are held online.
About me and my therapy practice
Life can be crap at times and you might be feeling stuck and finding it hard to find your way out. You might be feeling anxious, depressed or struggling with self-esteem having lost belief in yourself. This can be due to things happening around you, big life changes, challenges and trauma experienced the past, or current relationship difficulties. Together we can start to make sense of what is going on for you.
The work I do looks to understand unhelpful thinking and behavioural patterns developed in the past and how they are impacting you in the here and now. When we make sense of the past, we can make sustainable changes today.
I work with teenagers and adults of all genders. I have specific interest in working with issues relating to self-image, and shame and guilt.
I am an integrative CBT therapist, and use other modalities, such as Schema, Compassion Focused and Polyvagal theory where appropriate. Together we'll tailor an approach helpful for you in meeting your therapy goals.
I offer a space of connection, sometimes it is calm and quiet, other times it is real human discussion with warts and all.
My first session
First sessions tend to be different to the rest of our time together. I often have lots of questions to ask, for us to start to build a picture of what is bringing you to therapy, what is keeping the hardship going and what historical issues might be playing out in the here and now.
I will also, always ask you to identify generic goals you have for therapy. Sometimes we might want to get really specific and other times a general direction is enough. What ever you prefer.
