About me and my therapy practice

I practise Relational-Integrative therapy, which means that I offer a blend of the three main approaches: psychodynamic, humanistic and cognitive-behavioural therapy and can therefore tailor my approach to what you need.

I offer both brief therapy, as well as open-ended long term therapy.  

Although on this site I am required to tick specific  issues that I work with, I normally work with whatever life issues you bring.
