How I Can Help

Deciding you need support can be a difficult but important first step. Apprehension, fear and uncertainty are all common emotions people describe prior to attending their first appointment but nearly always people after their first session will describe relief and optimism that they are doing something positive to help.

I provide clients with a confidential space to work together to explore, understand and eventually work through the difficulties a client is facing in his or her life. Therapy might focus on distinct problems in the here-and-now (for example relationship problems, work stress or a phobia) or be an exploration of issues that are more deep rooted in the client’s past and are still impacting on his/her current life.

There are a range of terms you may have come across such as counselling, psychotherapy, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) used. It can be thought of as a ‘treatment’ for a particular problem such as obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), depression, anxiety and panic attacks or as a space for personal development to improve one’s quality of life.

There are numerous forms of therapy available and once an individual has decided that they may benefit from the help and support of a professional it can be a minefield trying to decide which would be the most appropriate or useful. Counselling, psychotherapy and cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) can be broadly thought of as ‘talking therapies’. As A Counselling Psychologist I have been trained to work in a number of different ways meaning that when we first meet I can help you to decide the best way to approach your problems.
