Helping individuals, couples, families, young people, children
Whether you are looking for help for yourself, for a family member or
for a friend - welcome!
Here to help you
I work with people of all ages, including individuals, couples, families, young people and also children. As an experienced psychotherapist and counsellor I am familiar with working with people with a range of problems and concerns. I list some of these here.
The concerns you face may, for example, be to do with the loss of a loved one; relationship difficulties or break-up; struggling with anxiety or feeling depressed; work pressures; low self-confidence and insecurity; family problems; how you think and feel about yourself; painful and traumatic experiences.
Also supporting people facing longer-term mental health problems
I also work to support individuals and their families with what might be considered longer-term mental health problems, such as 'psychosis' - Please see "mental health recovery". Although distinct, the ethos of my work has some common ground with the Soteria and Open Dialogue projects. I offer support for people who wish to be less reliant on (or have decided to work towards coming off) mental health drugs.
There is no shame in asking for help
With the pace and pressures of modern-day living it is understandable that we will at times feel disheartened, depressed, stressed, overwhelmed, fearful, or unsure of our place or purpose in life - and some may even feel suicidal. So, whatever your concerns, I hope you feel able to make contact. For those not local to me, I do sessions by video call (e.g. Skype) also.
A little about the sessions
This is an opportunity for you to talk about whatever matters to you: there's no
right or wrong way to do this. Here you can think without being rushed, share
what concerns you, and also consider with me practical solutions to the dilemmas and problems that you face.
