About me and my therapy practice

Are you struggling with feelings around self-esteem, anxiety, depression or stress? Are you trying to make sense of life and your place in it? Do you feel stuck in a difficult relationship or situation? Do you have life-limiting issues, or regrets for a life lived differently from the one you had imagined? It may sound cliché, but personal therapy is a journey. The road is often bumpy and sometimes feels hard – there is no point in pretending that counselling provides a magic wand. But you are not alone. As your counsellor I will take the journey alongside you every step of the way, until you are ready to take your own path.

My approach to counselling sits within an existentialist philosophy but I rarely work within only one mode. We build our work together by building our relationship together, and so therapy is always a unique experience. With me you will find a safe space where you can say anything without being judged, and feel anything without being wrong.

Practice description

I offer individual counselling therapy for adolescents, adults and older adults. My approach is mainly philosophical; we work on how we feel in the present, and consider what we want and need to do in order to shape our future.

However, I never work with only one approach; we build our work together by building our relationship together, and so therapy is always a unique experience. Sessions can continue for several weeks or many months.
