I have worked in mental health for twenty years, both with individuals and groups, initially using an Existential approach which is an exploratory, philosophical therapeutic approach.
Over the years I have integrated a range of other modalities, primarily psychodynamic approaches and Mentalisation based therapy.
I have experience working in both organisations and the NHS, where I primarily worked with clients who have suffered very undermining experiences in childhood, which have had aprofound impact on their identity and how they see themselves, their ability to manage their emotions and interpersonal relationships. It is here that I specialised in working with trauma, complex needs and PTSD both with individuals and groups.
My work in private practice is more varied, and includes clients with a wide range of presenting concerns, including anxiety, depression, bereavement, addictions or those who have questions about life and relationships, their sexuality, parenting, or how to manage certain life transitions, such as a break-up, redundancy or significant life changes.
I work offering both short term and longer term, open ended therapy.
Choosing to invest in yourself is an important decision, I am able to offer a confidential space where I will value your time and equally invest in your future be it a road to recovery or an exploratory transition.
I hope our work together will give you the tools you need to progress in your future.
