I have a master’s qualification in psychotherapy from the University of Brighton. I am a member of the UKCP and University of Psychotherapy and Counselling Association (UPCA).
I work with adults and young people (aged 18+) on a short or long-term basis. I work with ‘the individual’, and with the many unique and intertwining issues that may make up your experiences of living in the world.
In short-term counselling the focus is often on the resolution of a particular issue or problem that you may be encountering. Longer term psychotherapy may enable a deeper exploration of your personal patterns of relating to yourself, others, and the world. You decide how long you wish to continue therapy for, and we can talk about it together, reviewing as we go.
“Much of what we call personality is not a fixed set of traits, only coping mechanisms a person acquired in childhood” – by Dr Gabor Mate
Therapy enables an opportunity to make sense of, and integrate, your experiences. It is also a safe place should you wish to experiment with, and perhaps release, that which no longer serves you. This will be done collaboratively and at your pace.
“What I am really saying is that you don’t need to do anything, because if you see yourself in the correct way, you are all as much extraordinary phenomenon of nature as trees, clouds, the patterns in running water, the flickering of fire, the arrangement of the stars, and the form of a galaxy. You are all just like that, and there is nothing wrong with you at all.” – by Alan Watts
