About me and my therapy practice

I am one of only a handful of IFS trained therapists in the UK. If you are experiencing extremes in the way you behave, think or feel, Internal Family Systems would be a good choice of therapy. Extreme behaviours and emotions can be a sign of inner conflict; they are an indication that the different parts or aspects of your character have contrasting views about how you should go about living your life. A course of IFS therapy can help the different aspects of your character out of their extreme positions and guide them towards a more harmonious collaboration, characterised by reduced symptoms and an improved sense of wellbeing. Or you might have inkling there is unfinished business relating to an adverse life experience, such as trauma, bereavement, neglect, exploitation or abuse, or to an issue concerning the way other people related to you when you were growing up. In such circumstances, the IFS model supports you to release negative self-beliefs and troublesome burdens, some of which you may have been carrying for a long time. IFS can be helpful in situations where you might be feeling a reduced sense of Self. For example, you might feel you have lost the vital spark at the core of your being that energises and motivates you to deal with life’s ups and downs. I'm in a peaceful setting a short walk from the City centre and train station, there is parking and local bus routes. I can arrange to see clients needing wheelchair access at other venues in the City.
