About me and my therapy practice

If you have decided you’re ready to get some help, to talk to someone or make some changes, I offer an open, genuine space where you can share what has been bothering you. I’m here to understand what is going on for you, not judge you or tell you what you ought to do. I’m here to listen and help you find a tailored solution that works.

I bring my 10 years experience in therapy, working with individuals experiencing distress or hurdles on their path. I offer a range of approaches to help you overcome the problem. Over time, you will notice the changes you want in your life.

Anyone who feels they have a difficulty as follows, is welcome to get in touch with me: 

  • An event that has been difficult to forget, perhaps you notice feeling anxious or stressed if you're reminded of it (stress, trauma or PTSD) 
  • Some kind of life change that you would like space to talk through;
  • A recent loss, such as a relationship ending, or a bereavement;
  • Recovering from bullying and abuse;
  • Work related stress or challenges;
  • Troubles with confidence or low self esteem;
  • Experiencing anxiety, panic, obsessive thinking, social anxiety or phobias;
  • Premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD). 

Please contact me if you have any questions, or to arrange a consultation.

My first session

In the first session

I share important points about therapy for you to be aware of, such as confidentiality and we can discuss your reason for attending therapy. We agree frequency of meetings. Generally in the first few sessions I will offer you space to talk through your problem so we are clear on our focus together.

Once we have a shared understanding of what the problem is, I will work with you to achieve your goals.

Before we end therapy we can complete a wellbeing plan for you to take away and consolidate what has been useful.
