My approach

Making the decision to approach therapy is a positive step. Talking with friends and family is invaluable, but sometimes outside professional help can help you to gain a greater understanding in finding the resources to make those changes. It can also lead to self-discovery and self-awareness to live a more fulfilling life and to have more meaningful relationships. You may be deciding to seek therapy because you are feeling low or in distress, or confused with painful feelings that you do not understand, but you may also be coming from a place of curiosity.

I work in a collaborative way with every person to meet them at their point in their life’s journey. ‘Together we explore’ what you are experiencing – how you feel, what you think, what you think others’ expectations are of who you are, what your attitudes are and how your values may be challenged. So in our work together, you can see yourself more clearly, enabling you to grow.

I am a person-centred therapist and work with you at your pace: seeing you as the vessel, and therapy as the journey to help you unravel your narrative. With my passion I will help you explore and understand yourself in both the past and present. We may explore early childhood experience, cultural beliefs, gender restrains or present-day difficulties and how they shape your patterns of relating and your sense of self.

I work with a range of issues including anxiety, panic attacks, relationships, generational differences, divorce and separation, bullying, career, bereavement, depression, lack of confidence and low self-esteem, redundancy, gender identity, work-related stresses and parenting issues. No matter your challenge, I will work with you as an individual in helping you to explore, grow and express to find your true self.

Thank you for taking the time to find out about me. I hope to have the opportunity to learn about you. I offer a free telephone consultation giving us the opportunity to hear and listen to each other, before you make the final decision.
