About you

What brings people to psychotherapy?

I work with adults from many different backgrounds and experiencing a wide range of challenges and difficulties.  I work on a one-to-one, face-to-face basis (remote working during the pandemic).  I have a particular interest in helping people who are experiencing issues with:

Stress

Coping with the demands of modern lifestyles, developing emotional resilience.

Anxiety

Confusing, unhelpful and destructive, negative thinking patterns.  Feeling anxious, frightened or panic.

Depression

Feeling low, emotionally exhausted, broken and unable to cope. A general sense of dissatisfaction with life.

Loss and grief

Bereavement, mourning, relationship loss, redundancy.

Relationships

Communication problems, repeating negative patterns of behaviour, difficulties in sustaining a healthy, satisfying relationship, dealing with loss and loneliness, separation and divorce, family issues.

Low self-esteem

Low sense of self-worth, self-sabotage, repeating, self-limiting behaviours.

Lack of confidence

Always pleasing others, feeling overlooked, difficulties in asserting yourself.

Life-transitions

Leaving home or children leaving home, ‘quarter and mid-life crisis’, new relationship, career change, retirement, ageing.

Personal identity and life purpose

Confusion or doubts about personal identity and life purpose.

Work-related issues

Mental Health at Work:  Stress and burnout, difficult interpersonal relationships, dealing with office politics, bullying and harassment, work-life balance, career development.
