Experience and Skills
I guess you are reading this because something is not right in your life or you want to change in some way. It may be that you feel depressed or anxious or stressed, or that relationships with others are problematic. Maybe work is difficult or you are unhappy within yourself. Perhaps you want your life to go in a different direction and to achieve your potential.
It is not always easy to work through matters like these on your own, but therapy can make a lot of difference. I appreciate how reaching out for help is a big step and can be daunting.
The idea of therapy is to help you to find a way to be in a better place, and my role as a therapist is to help and guide and support you. I will give you space to be yourself without judgement and where you can be heard with compassion and respect. We can work to make sense of your thoughts and feelings and improve your ways of coping. I will use my skills to facilitate your journey.
My experience includes working with a wide range of adults of differing ages, genders and backgrounds and with issues including trauma and present-day challenges including relationships with others, workplace issues, depression, anxiety, stress, low self-esteem, addictions and eating disorders.
The most important thing about starting therapy is to find a therapist you feel able to work with. I would welcome an opportunity to talk with you and to see if we can find a way forward that works for you, either on the phone or by meeting. It will give you an opportunity to ask questions. You can then make a choice on what you do next.
I am an Integrative Psychotherapist qualified with a Masters degree. Integrative means that I adapt the therapy approach to you and your situation, (every person and every situation is unique), and I place a high emphasis on how we work together, the relationship.
I am a registered member of UKCP (UK Council for Psychotherapy).
My standard fee is £50 a session; however that is not affordable for everyone, so please talk to me and I will try to offer a rate to match your circumstances.
