About me and my therapy practice

Choosing a therapist can be a daunting process. I know - I've been through the process myself. Not knowing what to look for, if they'll be right for you or how they might help you. It's important to know that in many ways this process is the beginning of the therapeutic work - impulses, drives, aversions, likes and dislikes - all pulling you towards someone you feel will understand you. Someone that can help you.

This is one of many different things I may explore with you in our work together - looking at what brings you into relationships with people, what drives your behaviour, what thoughts you have day to day and what patterns are being played out. I explore the nuances of your world to help understand why it is you're feeling the way you do and through that process help you bring about change in your life.

Practice description

I work with adults and young people with a range of issues, including difficulties in relationships, stress, anxiety, depression, grief, concerns about gender identity or sexuality, body image concerns, as well as broader existential questions of purpose, meaning and finding where you fit in in this world.

The work is often open-ended and long-term, however, this is completely dependent on the challenges you are bringing and your appetite for longer-term personal exploration.

Sessions are £65 for 50 mins and I also have a limited number of reduced-rate spaces at £40 per 50-minute session for those that would otherwise find counselling prohibitively expensive and cannot access low and no-cost therapy services.

My first session

If you would like to go ahead with me or would like an initial session to see if I am the right therapist for you, please get in touch. Prior to the session, I will send you a short form to complete which will provide me with a sense of how you're feeling at the moment. I will provide you with a copy of the agreement between us, outlining what you can expect from me and what I can expect from you. This should be signed and returned prior to the first session.

About me and my therapy practice

I'm trained in a range of approaches, often referred to as an integrative therapist, and I therefore shape our work together to meet your needs. I'm informed by psychodynamic, humanistic, existential, gestalt and neuroscientific theories.

I'll focus on both the here and now as well as explore the past with you. I'll help you to address possible underlying causes of behaviour as we discuss patterns of behaviour being played out time and again.

Practice description

Everybody will experience not only the exhilaration of life, but also its inevitable darkness: disillusionment, aging, illness, isolation, loss, questions of identity, meaninglessness, painful choices, and death.

It can feel incredibly lonely in this darkness and incredibly liberating to be able to give this darkness a voice and share it with someone to bring it into the light. Unfortunately we are not always able to share our deepest secrets, fears and desires with those around us, and so we bottle them up without allowing for that vital exploration of those feelings.

Some find the prospect of therapy extremely daunting and others are excited by the idea. Wherever you find yourself on the spectrum of feelings towards therapy, my hope is that I can provide you with a safe, confidential and gently challenging space to explore the darkness you're experiencing currently.

I have a limited number of reduced rate spaces for my practice for those individuals that would otherwise find therapy prohibitively expensive.
