My Approach Is Flexible

My approach is flexible, some individuals are seeking appointments in order to process a particular issue; i.e. bereavement or anger management, others might want trauma-based therapy, or longer term psychotherapy for depression or to work through the impact of, for example childhood issues.

I offer an integrative approach to psychotherapy, which include Hypnotherapy/Psychotherapy for low self-esteem, anxiety-related conditions and phobias. EMDR for trauma-based issues/disorders like PTSD. Mnemodynamics, Psychodynamic Therapy, helping individuals to process their experience and understand their, deep-rooted feelings in order to resolve them, or the cognitive therapies i.e. REBT (Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy) which are based on the way you think, feel and the way you behave as a result. These therapies recognise that it is possible to change, our thoughts, feelings or behaviour to overcome specific problems.

Mind, Body & Spirit

I believe mind body and spirit are all part of the same system and a change in one can bring a change in the other, therefore healing and Reiki healing is also part of how I work.

I am passionate about psychotherapy, and believe strongly in its capacity to heal and help people work through painful, traumatic and troubling life events. I am committed to promoting positive mental health and emotional well-being; something that I feel is often over looked.

My aim is to provide safe, ethical and professional psychotherapy, creating an opportunity for you to work through difficult issues in a safe, non-judgemental and confidential environment.

I am mindful people have busy lives and can find it difficult to access services in working hours, therefore I offer daytime and evening appointments to help suit your needs.
