About me and my therapy practice

As we face these uncertain times, we find ourselves coming up against many challenges that may be exacerbating our existing internal struggles. It feels more important than ever to find some sense of certainty and purpose in these difficult times. Self-isolating can bring on fear and anxiety, uncertainty around our livelihoods can trigger old and new coping strategies that may feel damaging to one's self.

Life is all about relationship in one form or another, how we relate to everything and everybody around us and of course, our relationship with ourselves. You may be struggling in personal relationships, spiralling addictions or self-sabotaging thoughts and behaviours. In therapy we explore the underlying issues and possible trauma, in order to create real and lasting positive change in your life.

We are looking to build on your self-worth and self-esteem, and to positively affect your belief systems so that you feel more engaged with the world around you. Clients often present with feelings of loneliness and not belonging; we look to gently transform these experiences in to having a greater sense of who you are and your place in the world.

Therapy helps us to develop self-compassion, to quieten our critical mind and to learn how to experience a calmer and more peaceful life.

I have been in practice for 8 years and hold a space that is safe, non-judgemental, empathetic and compassionate. Our work together is collaborative, helping you move forward towards positive change in your life, to gain a clearer sense of self and to have a handle on your mental health.

I have both a wide lived and professional experience, working with addiction, anxiety, childhood abuse, stress, burnout, loneliness, relationship issues and depression. I work with other gay men with issues around chemsex, sex, sexuality, shame and addiction.

My first session

Our first meeting will be an opportunity for you to share with me what you are struggling with and coming up against; from there we can explore how to work together. Don't worry if you feel that you can't quite explain what you're looking to address, as we can explore this together. 

I offer an optional 10 minute phone call, so that you can ask any questions and get a feel of how it is to work with me. 

If I'm unable to answer your call, please do leave a message and let me know when is a convenient time to call you back, at a time that you feel comfortable with privacy and confidentiality.
