Taking the first step to approaching therapy can be really difficult. Finding help might have been on your mind for a while or perhaps suddenly something has stopped working and you are looking for a way to explore your current, past or future situations. Whatever has brought you here, I want to encourage you that you are making a healthy decision for yourself.
I work in an integrative way which means that I use a variety of theoretical approaches to suit my clients. Usually this involves talking therapy but depending on your personal interests we can incorporate more creative approaches if this might help you to explore more freely. Expressing oneself verbally is not easy for everybody. I believe that the therapeutic relationship can provide a healing and explorative experience for a client as they can examine how they are in a safe space with another. I work with a broad range of issues such as depression, anxiety, self esteem, disordered eating, grief and loss, trauma, suicidal thoughts and ideation, relationships, anger, sexual abuse, sleep, addiction, parenting, trauma and self harm.
I adhere to the UKCP and BACP ethical framework, meaning that I value each of my clients as a unique person, taking in to account diversity, equality and inclusion and protecting their confidentiality and privacy.
