Individual therapy

Everyone experiences difficult times in their lives; you may have difficult relationships with your parent(s) or partner, going through a divorce, or find yourself depressed, anxious or feeling stuck in your life, without really understanding why.

Psychotherapy and counselling allow us to explore our thoughts and feelings in a safe space. Through a deeper awareness of our thoughts, emotions and responses to situations, we can gain greater control in our life. 

I have undertaken extensive training in the field of mental health, in addition to many years of NHS experience; this places me well to understand and diagnose the underlying issues which my clients face.

During the initial meeting, I discuss with my client what they hope to gain from counselling and psychotherapy; I work together with my clients to find the approach most suitable for them, and work towards a plan of action.

In my clinical practice, I primarily draw upon psychoanalytic and systemic theories, both as therapeutic approaches, and as frameworks through which human development and relationships can be understood. I am also trained in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT).

However, I believe that there is no “one-size-fits-all” approach to psychotherapist; therefore, I integrate these modalities of practice depending on the needs and goals of my clients.
