I provide a safe and welcoming therapeutic space for you to explore any of the issues that bring you to therapy.
I am an experienced Psychotherapist, and have been providing therapy for over fifteen years in a variety of settings. I originally trained as a Psychologist, and have completed further training in mindfulness-based psychotherapy.
Psychotherapy can help people to develop a better relationship with themselves, others, and with life experiences. it can help people to make positive changes, and to develop a kind acceptance for what cannot be changed.
My approach is a blend of Psychodynamic therapy with mindfulness.
Psychodynamic Psychotherapy recognises how our early relationship experiences and the ways we have needed to cope in childhood and adolescence, may be affecting us today.
Mindfulness strengthens our ability to see clearly, and to live in the here and now, with compassion. This simply means we practice taking a pause from our thinking minds, and pay some attention to what is happening in the present moment.
This is a collaborative and an exploratory therapy, where we are curious together about what you bring to the sessions, and practice looking inwards to understand this better. It is a depth therapy rather than a solution focused approach.
Who can benefit from this approach?
I work with people who experience anxiety, depression, anger, shame or guilt, relationship difficulties, low self-esteem, grief, and issues around sense of self or identity.
My way of working is also trauma-informed, providing safety and tools for those who have experienced trauma or emotional neglect in childhood or adulthood.
What to expect
The therapy is shaped around your own individual needs, but here are some things you could expect from us working together:
