About me and my therapy practice

Hello,

Do you sometimes feel that life seems too much or too difficult? Do you feel that your life has lost its meaning? Or can you find yourself worrying that you’re not good enough?

We can often feel as though we’re alone, scared, and that there’s nothing we can do. And that’s actually very common. People can hide their problems from others because they fear what will happen if they were to admit this to anyone else. But we all have problems, and we can all work towards solving them.

And this is how therapy can help.

Therapy offers you a safe space to talk about the issues you might be struggling with. It’s an opportunity to talk to someone without judgment or shame. By talking to another person therapy helps you make sense of what’s going on and to look at what you would like to change in your life.

I am an Existential therapist which is a type of therapy that aims to try and understand your situation as best as possible so you can feel heard and understood, and to examine your anxieties and difficulties to help you make the best choices you can to face the difficulties life throws at us.

I work in Dorset and have many years of experience working as a volunteer and in private practice with clients dealing with depression, anxiety, trauma, stress, childhood abuse, and dissociation. I believe that therapy should be accessible and affordable, so please ask about my concession rates if needed.

If you are interested then please call and we can set up a no-obligation introductory session to talk about your concerns and what you’re looking for from therapy.

Practice description

I am currently working online and over the telephone due to the Covid outbreak.
