About me and my therapy practice

Hello. I am a qualified and experienced practitioner offering Counselling and Psychotherapy. I work with people to identify problem areas in their life and to resolve emotional distress/discomfort through understanding and positive change.

In my work I provide a safe and supportive environment to help people achieve a greater degree of personal autonomy, increase spontaneity and intimacy with themselves and others, and I will gently challenge old paradigms to allow people to explore a more fulfilling life going forward.

On a shorter term we can work to focus on a particular area or issue and in longer-term work we can do more in-depth psychotherapeutic work to explore and understand certain patterns and ways of being in your life that may need changing or revising in some way.

What is best for you is something we can discuss together in our first meeting.

Session Days and Times

I can offer daytime and limited evening appointments in Washington (RH20).

My Approach

My style is based in Transactional Analysis which is one of the most widely recognised modalities of psychotherapy aimed at promoting personal growth and change. It is a theory of personality and communication that helps us to understand who we are and how we came to be the person we are.

If there are certain unhealthy ways of behaving, thinking or feeling in your life, together we will look at exploring those further to see what it is you may want to update how you do things, see things or feel about particular issues. The focus in sessions is you and what you would like to gain from therapy and for this reason, therapy is tailored to your needs and presenting issues.
