Special areas of expertise

I am highly experienced in working with depression, all types of anxiety, OCD, trauma, substance misuse, trichotillomania and other bodily focused repetitive behaviours, trust issues, personality issues, fear, and anything else you can bring to therapy.

I work with people from all backgrounds and ethnicities and have experience in working with people on the autistic spectrum, those with learning difficulties, transgendered people, and long-term health conditions.

I can offer short or longer-term work and online therapy.

Our Practice

When we meet, we will spend the first session discussing any questions you may have about therapy, how I work, what brought you to see me, and what you think is going to be helpful to you.

You are the expert on yourself an only you can decide what might work for you. We will form a plan together, perhaps over the course of two to three sessions, of how we can proceed, and what we collaboratively believe is going on for you.

You will find my practice is based on a humanistic, integrative, pluralistic blending of possibilities from several frameworks, including CBT, Gestalt, Compassion Focused Therapy, ideas from psychodynamic practice, with a person-centred, humanistic core.
