I offer individual counselling/psychotherapy to children, young people and adults with a wide range of psychological issues. I also work with couples and i have a special interest in cross-cultural couples. I integrate elements of different counselling theories and approaches, which allows me to tailor the help and support I can give you to your own personal needs.
I use an integrative approach to therapy, which means that I draw from approaches such as Psychodynamic and Humanistic theories, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Systemic Therapy with individuals and Mindfulness.
I can help you to make sense of your thoughts, feelings and emotions, which can enable you to gain greater self-awareness, insight and understanding of yourself and your life. You might explore underlying causes of distress, identify unhelpful patterns of behaviour and consider ways of facilitating choice or change.
Issues I work with
I work with people from all walks of life and have experience in helping with issues such as:
- anxiety & stress
- relationship problems
- difficulties at work and with studies
- low self-esteem, lack of confidence & negative self-image
- children-related issues
- adjustments to life changes and transitions
- dependency and addiction
- personality disorders
- eating disorders
- cultural adjustments
- abuse (physical, sexual, emotional)
- learning difficulties
- young people’s issues
- Asperger syndrome and high functioning autism
If for some reason I am unable to help you with your issues or we realise that counselling and psychotherapy is not the best way forward, I will be able to direct you to someone who can help or signpost you to some local organisations which you might find helpful.
