This may be your first time seeking the help, therapy, counselling, or professional psychological input. You may not know what form of that you are seeking, only that you need for things to be different. You may recognise some of your experiences in the image, and how heavy and confusing it can all feel with conflicting advice, ‘online diagnosis’, self blame, and sifting through the various types of therapy that are available.

I have been in practice for 18 years and am a Senior Member of the British Psychological Society’s Register of Psychologists Specialising in Psychotherapy. I combine psychological research and theory with counselling and psychotherapeutic schools of thought around personality formation, to understand how and why life’s issues manifest in a unique way in any individual.

This may be as emotional turmoil, sabotaging behaviour, mood variations, thought ruminations and distortions, mental health diagnosis and clinical manifestations. The list of how issues present are endless. I tailor my approach to individual needs and circumstances to understand these manifestations together and most importantly to understand what change and wellness means to you.

The decision to reach out for psychological therapy is an important one. It takes courage to consider this. It’s also an investment of your hope, which I take very seriously. You must have a sense that you’ll be met by a person with professionalism, knowledge, skill, commitment, integrity, and consistency in what they do. I welcome inquiries either by email or talking on the phone, if you feel any further clarification may help bring you closer to finding the therapy that is a fit for you.
