How I can help you
Sometimes life can be hard and it feels as though we have no one to talk to. You deserve to have the space to talk about what's bothering you and together, we can think about this and help to bring about some resolution or change.
Some of the people I see come with a current issues such as a recent bereavement, break-up, addiction or job loss. Some come with a past issue which they want to explore or learn to cope with, such as childhood abuse and neglect or a difficult event which has left a lasting mark. I am particularly experienced in working with individuals who suffer from depression and anxiety.
I use the Psychodynamic approach which highlights the importance of considering how the happenings in our past can affect our current life and also, the impact our past can have on our life choices and the way we behave. It gives you the chance to reflect on events, yourself and also your relationships with others.
Working through your problems in this way will help you to cope with the present and also equip you with the strength to cope if things get difficult in the future. I am open and empathetic and am ready to make contact with you. I'm glad you have taken the time to consider working with me.
What to expect
As well as internet sessions, I can also offer face to face sessions in person either at my practice address, can offer home visits for those unable to leave their home or for those who would like the convenience of this.
Clients leave the work feeling more confident and settled, less anxious and more robust, better able to cope with life's difficulties which can often get thrown our way. I will always make time to be available for the individuals who approach me for help. My approach works best when we have a session at least once a week as regular contact means ongoing support to help you cope.
I have worked in the social care sector for years, working alongside the local authority as the manger of a domiciliary care organisation therefore, have significant experience of working with individuals who have a variety of mental health conditions, disabilities and alcohol and drug misuse.
I am experienced in exploring issues surrounding diversity and difference including race, sexuality and gender.
