6 Years Experience

I am an experienced counsellor and psychotherapist working with a variety of psychological issues such as anxiety and depression, relationship problems, addictions and other obsessive compulsive behaviours. I work empathically and sympathetically and will also invite you to challenge your belief systems and self-image. I am trained psychodynamically and so will look for patterns of behaviour and their roots. I will help you to identify links in your current situation to past experiences and relationships.
I have a particular interest in working with relationship issues; often there are clear patterns which are repeated in relationships, some of which can be destructive and unhelpful. I am of the belief that these patterns can be identified and altered by attending therapy, often leading to more fulfilling relationships.
I have a history of working with addiction both as a one-to-one psychotherapist and a group therapist. This experience means that I am well qualified to work with clients who suspect they may have addictive tendencies but are unsure how to address this issue.
