I offer a confidential therapeutic relationship, in a safe and purposeful space and the length of this work is based on your curiosity and needs. In a shorter term relationship, I might work with a personal sense of self, which involves exploring how we make meaning about our life experience. We can focus on our sense of what might be hindering us. In a longer term therapeutic relationship, I work in a more psychodynamic way. This tradition involves exploring some less conscious processes that might affect us and how we tend to defend against these. And we consider how early familiar patterns of ways of relating inform the way we continue to relate to relate with others. My position is always to listen to your experience and to support you in your personal journey towards an increased sense of wellbeing and self-empowerment.

Examples of challenges clients have shared with me have been around coping with stress, anxiety or painful feelings, needing support around significant life transitions (including loss of someone, job, home), finding it hard to understand who they are, or their purpose, difficulties in personal or professional relationships, going through academic-related worries, hurting from complex childhood experiences. Your own life journey is always unique and I work with your individual experience.

Searching for a therapist who feels right for you is important. When this is an unfamiliar experience it can feel uneasy to contact and meet that therapist. As a fully-qualified and experienced counsellor, I am sensitive to this. I can empathically and without judgement support you through this from the moment you get in touch with me.
