I am an experienced and fully accredited psychotherapist working with a wide range of issues which include anxiety and depression, low self-esteem, relationship or work difficulties, bullying, anger management, bereavement and parenting skills. I have been working with individuals since 2003 and my style is supportive and conversational, with a view to establishing a good relationship with the client.
A qualified and experienced therapist who in addition to managing their own client workload, works with new clients completing the pre-counselling assessment and ensuring the best possible match for the client and a suitable therapist. The lead therapist maintains oversight of the team’s caseload and supports individual therapists in issues arising from work with their clients.
Taking the step to come to therapy for the first time can seem daunting, but I strive to ensure that my clients feel at ease and that they are well supported in whatever they bring. Really, we are just having an exploratory conversation in which I help you to find out more about yourself, why you think and behave as you do, and what options are available to you in order to move forward. Alternatively, you may being going through a particularly difficult time for which you need some comfort and support while you move through it.
The loss of a loved one or the end of the a relationship can be a particularly emotional time, for example, and so I would help my client in their processing of the grief and help them accept their loss so that they can move on. Or maybe you are in stuck in an unhappy relationship, in which case we may spend time looking at the dynamics of the relationship and how we may affect a change in order to achieve a satisfying outcome.
