I am a fully qualified counselling therapist registered with The National Counselling Society ( NCS) I offer short and long term psychotherapy to adults and young people on an individual basis. I work with individuals suffering from difficulties including depression, anxiety, anger, low self-esteem, adverse childhood experiences, relational difficulties past and present, work related issues, substance abuse, as well as other problems..

The decision to seek therapy is often not a simple one but once taken it marks a commitment to care for yourself that may then be fostered in our work together until you are able to meet your dilemmas or troubles with more understanding, the aim of our work together is to develop a deeper insight into your patterns and problems which often play out either in relationships or in self defeating behaviours- a Freudian concept known as ' the compulsion to repeat'.

I also specialise in Mental health assessment and the delivery of brief focused CBT interventions if you prefer to work in the here and now with a future focused goal orientated approach, this is heavily guided by NICE guidance.

My personal interest is working with unconscious processes and the concepts underpinning the psychoanalytic appoach.
