About me and my therapy practice

I am a fully qualified psychotherapist and research psychologist. Working in an integrative way, means that my training enables me to draw upon a number of different theories and approaches (i.e., Humanistic (client/person-centered), Transactional Analysis, Attachment, Psychoanalytical, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Gestalt). Trained to work with the arts, in a therapeutic manner as an Art Therapist, means that this way of working can also be integrated into the work that is undertaken with clients.


My work with clients can take several forms depending on the issues that an individual is currently dealing with. In the main I work with adults to overcome a wide range of issues including anxiety, panic attacks, depression, transition difficulties, self-esteem, anger, stress, gender, relationship, work-related problems, bereavement and loss. 


Therapy sessions often focus upon helping individuals to develop new, more adaptive, coping strategies to replace those which are not currently life-enhancing, and: have thus led to the current problems. 


Coming to therapy provides an opportunity for stepping outside of the script you may find yourself stuck in, and contemplating other, more adaptive approaches to living your life. I can work with clients to help them gain new, alternative perspectives and coping strategies, towards an end goal of living the life you once imagined for yourself.  

Equally, sometimes, people come into therapy with no over-arching problems or issues, rather simply a wish to be able to think out loud and receive some feedback, in a safe and non-judgmental environment. Basically, the reasons for coming into therapy are as varied and unique as the individuals themselves
