I am an experienced UKCP registered psychotherapist working with people from diverse backgrounds who come to see me because they feel anxious, depressed, have relationship problems or have a general sense of unease and feel that life is meaningless or joyless. Some people feel stuck and find themselves in the same place, repeating the same patterns, despite their efforts to change things. Other people come because they want to get to know themselves more deeply and experience life more fully.
I offer a safe therapeutic relationship that seeks to understand you as a unique person. Within this therapeutic relationship, we can explore and begin to understand why you may feel the way you are, why things don’t seem to be working for you, and what things you want to change. The therapy does not involve giving you a set of instructions or prescriptions for how you should live your life, nor will I try to fit you into a category. Instead, it focuses on developing a deeper understanding of yourself, leading to a better ability to creatively manage the demands and risks of life, develop better relationships and reduce ‘symptoms’.
