Sometimes we need help to face certain problems, challenges or difficulties in life.
Psychotherapy is a talking therapy and a space to reflect. In therapy its possible to explore experiences and increase awareness of what’s going on for us, and our relationships with others - ultimately to live more satisfying lives, more fully in the present.
I‘m an integrative therapist with a doctorate in psychotherapy, and a broad training background in various other approaches (e.g. cognitive behavioural therapy, compassion focussed therapy, interpersonal psychotherapy).
I have extensive experience mostly in the NHS and private practice but also in the third sector.
I take an inclusive, non-pathologising view of gender and sexuality and recognise the broad range of gender, sexual, and relationship diversities (GSRD).
I describe myself as a relational therapist because I prioritise the therapy relationship and I recognise that relationships are so fundamental to us human beings.
Even though there are many different types of therapy, one of the most important things is that you feel comfortable to talk freely and openly about your experiences. Seasoned therapists draw on a range of theoretical and technical ideas depending on what you’ve said you want to get out of the work.
I integrate theoretical and technical ideas, recognising the importance of evidence-based practice as well as practice-based evidence.
