If you are experiencing difficulties relating to stress, anxiety, depression, self-esteem or trauma, you may wish to have a confidential space where you can explore these issues and find a way forward.
You may be feeling alone, helpless, stuck and/or disconnected from those around you. I will work collaboratively with you, to see your distress within the context of your life, offering a therapeutic approach best suited to you.
Together we can build on your strengths, skills and resources and help you to feel more empowered.
Therapy provides a space to step back and look at what’s happening in your life, gain a new perspective, and learn healthy ways to cope and respond to challenges. I am committed to working together at your own pace, providing a warm and safe environment to understand what is bothering you or causing you distress.
I work in an integrative manner, and utilise a variety of models including: Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT); Person-Centred Therapy; Solution focussed therapy; Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT); Schema Therapy; Gestalt Therapy; Compassion Focussed Therapy. I adapt the work to your specific needs and the difficulties you bring to therapy.
