About me

Having worked in both in the NHS and private practice for many years, I have a lot of experience working with adults struggling with various mental health problems, relationship issues and coping with stressful situations.

In particular I have an interest in helping people who have experienced trauma and might be struggling with the consequences of this such as depression, anxiety, relationship problems, grief/loss, phobias and... really common is how these difficult experiences can impact our relationship with ourself.

Rather than use one particular approach to therapy, I use an integrative approach by making use of a variety of theories and techniques, which I tailor to the individual and their circumstances. Therefore a key part of therapy with me is coming to a good understanding of you as a whole person including strengths and resources and building these alongside working on the struggles.

If you are interested in finding out if I might be able to help, and we could be a good therapeutic fit, please contact me and we can discuss further.
