There are times when we all struggle with life, finding ourselves overwhelmed by difficult thoughts and feelings. Looking for a therapist to help you is taking an important first step in addressing your problems. Through working together to understand the underlying causes of your distress, you can begin to live with greater ease and happiness.
Depression, anxiety, panic attacks, addictions and obsessions are symptoms caused by deep conflicts within us. My approach to therapy is to help you develop a story that makes sense of your experience. Through understanding the root causes of your distress, you find that your symptoms diminish and you gain insight into how and why they occurred. This process also gives you the knowledge, skills and practical tools to deal more effectively with difficulties if they arise in the future.
I have over 20 years experience in working as a therapist. I draw from a holistic model of psychological therapies which sees you as the expert and our relationship as central to the healing process. I will treat you with compassion, empathy and respect. I work with you to help you feel more in control of your life and to increase your overall sense of wellbeing.
I work with individuals and couples.
