I offer a friendly, empathetic and personal service working individually with clients to explore their issues and difficulties. I have worked with people from diverse backgrounds, with a wide range of difficulties. Therapy provides a secure and confidential space to talk about what is troubling you, enabling you to explore your issues in whichever way suits you.
As integrative therapist I have experience of working in different modalities, humanistic, existential and psychodynamic, the focus, however, remains on you and the issues you wish to bring.
I offer a space to explore meanings and make connections, to enable understanding, this in itself can promote change, sometimes deep intrapersonal change and learning. I offer short term or fixed contracts or longer more open ended therapy for more complex issues.
My experience includes working with anxiety, depression, relationship/interrelation, identity and gender based issues. Anger, Bullying, Divorce/Separation, Loneliness, Self-Esteem, Phobias, Redundancy and unemployment, Sexual Identity, gender Dysphoria, shame and Guilt.
This includes working with issues associated with Abuse, Trauma, loss, bereavement, marital issues, work related stress and life transitions. I also work with people who have spectrum (ASD) and related conditions.
Part of my training was with the NHS Youth Counsellor (Surrey and Borders Partnership NHS Foundation Trust) working with young people and adolescents. Other experience includes working with people who have problems around the use of drugs, alcohol and related issues.
