You may have been considering therapy for a while but are hesitating or perhaps you've had previous experience and need something more. You feel something is not right but it is hard to think about or put into words? Living with high levels of anxiety, shame or fear for a prolonged period, can negatively affect the way we perceive ourselves and others. So with a compassionate approach, I work with most psychological difficulties, and have a special interest in anxiety and low mood, problematic family relationships, parenting and bereavement.

My approach is Person Centred, which means working with you to understand the root cause of your difficulties. These can often lie in past experiences and may be out of awareness. Together we will explore your thoughts, feelings and behaviours to help increase your understanding of yourself. Insight can lead to change.

I have also undergone therapy so I know it can be difficult to take the first step in finding help and be confident that you have found the right therapist. I therefore suggest a one-off session so that together we can make an informed decision about continuing.
