About me and my therapy practice

A warm welcome

Whether the problem is your life circumstances, relationships, your past, or it feels like it’s something about you, if you’re suffering and struggling, I can help you. Perhaps everything you've tried so far to improve things hasn't helped in the way you'd hoped, and you’ve run out of ideas. Perhaps you haven’t had the caring environment to work through your problems, or the people you turned to haven’t given you what you needed. If this is you, take heart – over the past eight years I have worked with people from many different walks of life, helping them to live happier, more fulfilled lives.

Whatever the nature of your problems, my aim is for you to arrive on a path that is less full of suffering and dysfunction. In a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space we will explore your memories, beliefs, assumptions, feelings, body sensations and style of relating. I will assist you to develop the inner resources you need to move forward.

When you take your therapeutic journey with me, I will walk the path of exploration, healing and growth with you, whatever we find on the way and wherever it takes us. I will stay the course with you, always holding your best interests in mind. 


The type of therapy I offer: my approach can be described as Integrative-Relational-Developmental.

Integrative means...that I draw on various therapeutic approaches and psychological research to enable me to respond flexibly to your therapeutic needs and serve your best interests.

Relational means...that I provide a therapeutic relationship that supports your healing and growth. I offer you both the opportunity to risk being yourself with me - and to discover who you can be when you feel truly accepted for who you are.

Developmental means...that I take a special interest in your early life experiences. Applying a developmental focus can bring profound, lasting change.
