How I can help you
I provide psychotherapy in Face-to-Face (in-person) settings in Chorlton in South Manchester, as well as online (email, live chat and video conference therapy).
For Face-to-Face (in-person) therapy I can offer flexibility in terms of timings of appointments, so that you can fit your regular therapy appointments around your lifestyle.
I offer short-term therapy (therapy for an agreed time period) or in open-ended therapy, with the aim of enabling exploration and the working through of difficulties. Do you want relief from symptoms such as anxiety or depression? Do you want help working through relationship difficulties? Perhaps you want to explore a sense or repeating patterns in your life or life not feeling quite right? Psychotherapy can help with all of these kinds of difficulty.
I am trained in Transactional Analysis Psychotherapy, and use a range of ideas from this model. These include ways of understanding how we become who we are, and how we grow and change during the life course. Transactional Analysis can also help in gaining relief from distressing symptoms such as anxiety and depression.
What to expect
I am trained and experienced in working with transactional analysis, and typically the therapy I offer will include looking at your current difficulties or problems as well as any past experiences which might have had an impact on these problems. So. looking at how the problem developed, how you respond in the ways you do, and how change might be helpful and in what ways. This is an approach that can be helpful for increasing understanding of repeating patterns, for working through difficult feelings (including anxiety and depression) and for examining how circumstances and situations develop.
In terms of my general approach I describe myself as both a humanistic and relational therapist. What this means is that I consider your difficulty as a 'whole person experience', affecting you in the here and now, as well as perhaps having origins in the past. It also means that the therapeutic relationship is seen as a significant agent and element for the therapy to be successful.
