About me and my therapy practice

I offer short term and long term counselling and Psychotherapy with individuals or groups. I've worked as a counsellor since 2001 in various settings, alongside 15 years experience as a State Registered Occupational Therapist (NHS) in Mental Health and community teams. You may be experiencing pain or a crisis or have felt stuck, anxious or depressed for some time. You may have past or present relationship issues you need to talk about and explore. My core approach is psychodynamic which means we will explore and think about how the past may be affecting the present. My aim is to get to the roots of ongoing issues, to try to make sense of them and work through the feelings involved. Through the therapeutic relationship you can be helped to come to terms with conflicts and difficulties, discover new insights, and increase your understanding, self acceptance and life satisfaction. I aim to balance support and challenge in a way that helps you move forward with your life.
