Looking after our psychological health is an important task. At times we all need some sort of outside support to help manage our well-being. Engaging with a professional for this can seem like a daunting prospect. However, it can be a powerful and healing experience. Psychological therapy has been shown to be helpful in resolving a range of personal and psychological difficulties in a safe and supportive space.
Therapy can offer us the space to understand and explore our difficulties and to make sense of them in the light of our unique life experiences and relationships. It can help us find new ways of dealing with problems, break negative patterns and give us ways to cope in healthier and more effective ways. We may also find we can integrate and feel more free from unresolved trauma and grief. Ultimately, therapy can help us better understand and consciously respond to our thoughts, feelings and actions, which can lead to a more balanced and peaceful state of being and an improved quality of life.

Training & Consultation
I have previously taught on the Institute of Psychiatry’s doctoral training programme and have consulted on a range of psychological and therapeutic topics to teams and organisations within Social Services and the NHS. I have also taught workshops on areas such as self-esteem, mindfulness and self-development.
Please contact me to discuss how I may be able to assist your team or organisation.
I have close links with colleagues in the local area also offering psychological therapy so if I don’t feel that I can offer you what you need at this time, I may be able to direct you to someone else who can help.
