About me and my therapy practice
You are probably more interested in what I might help you with than what I do. Many of the clients I see are trying to work out how to get over trauma of some kind, often from their childhoods. This could be sexual abuse, domestic violence or lack of care, or some combination of those. These can still affect you in adulthood, causing worries about how you behave with your own children and who you trust, and can affect your physical health in a range of ways including lack of sleep, digestive problems and fibromyalgia.
Trauma and stress in adulthood can affect us too, and I have experience of helping with job worries, bereavement, money problems and changes in life direction. Clients have talked about issues like whether they are drinking too much, have a difficult relationship with food, take drugs, or get relief from cutting, and I can help you look at how these things help you manage and what else you could do to reduce anxiety.
I have helped people whose work brings them into contact with scary or high pressure situations, particularly if you aren't encouraged to admit to your boss how that can make you feel.
Once you've taken the huge step of wanting to talk to someone, we can see if we get along and whether we could work together. We can plan how to do it and what tools you might need to help you. I am person-centred so we go at your pace and with what you want to explore.
I also use a technique called 'focusing' which helps clients listen to themselves more clearly - we can try that if you think it might help you.
Give me a ring or email me if you would like to know more and ask questions. If it would help to visit and check out whether it feels safe enough to work together then just let me know.
