I have over 20 years of experience and training as a psychological therapist. This brings a wealth of skills and expertise. I work in a collaborative way with my clients, and I see the client ultimately as the expert on themselves.

I see my work as helping clients to discover/rediscover their own inner expertise and unique individual potential that has often been lost under unprocessed and multi-layered experiences of stressful and traumatic events, and related default ‘threat brained survival responses’ both in adulthood and childhood. These events can become locked and frozen within the whole individual system, causing issues such as low self-esteem, negative self-image, lack of confidence and related default (often unconscious) responses become habitual. This can often result in a vicious cycle of unhelpful thoughts, distressing feelings, and unmanageable behaviours that people often feel powerless to change.

I help clients to make links to, and re process, the original events, change their relationship with themselves, and develop healthier ways of responding and being in the here and now.

Seeking psychological therapy can be a daunting and an anxiety provoking process. However please be reassured that you are not alone. Statistics show that 1 in 4 people will experience some kind of mental health problem in the course of a year, and the World Health Organisation predicted in 2009, that within 20 years more people will be affected by depression than any other health problem.
