I work with both children and adults (with families), who are experiencing mental health difficulties, such as anxiety and depression. I also have a keen interest in working with those who have experienced complex / relational trauma with or without self-harming/suicidal behaviour.
I also work with couples experiencing difficulties in their relationship and work towards understanding the emotional conflicts, that result in the relationship being strained or likely to end without support.
There is no one size fits all therapeutic approach and so I place importance on developing a shared understanding of what the core emotional issues are that impact you.
The type of therapies I deliver are essentially about emotional experiencing within the therapeutic space to work through your difficulties, mainly relating to emotional distress and/or trauma. The main therapies I deliver are include Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, Intensive Short Term Dynamic Psychotherapy (ISTDP), Mentalisation Based Therapy (MBT) & EMDR / DBT.
It's never easy to start a journey of therapy, but if youâ€™re looking to work on understanding and making sense of your difficulties, I place great importance on our relationship so that you can benefit, in order to get the best outcomes and continue with life.
