I am an experienced Psychotherapist, Life Coach and Clinical Supervisor who specialises in Anxiety, Depression, sexual issues, addictions, relationship problems and work related stress.
You may be seeking therapy because you are going through a very difficult time in your life, you may be feeling confused about a situation or you may be struggling to make sense of things.
Whatever the difficulty you are going through, Psychotherapy can really help you to make sense of what is happening in your life and what to do about it. It is usual that you may have concerns about what to expect if you have never had therapy before. I work in a way that provides a therapeutic experience that is specifically tailored to you and your needs, which means I may incorporate one or more different modes of therapy to give you the best experience possible.
If you feel you want to focus more on goal oriented outcomes then maybe you would rather participate in life / executive coaching, which focuses on specific aims and objectives, with accountability at the core of the work. Whether therapy or coaching I work in a supportive, confidential, non-judgmental and empathetic way assisting you to negotiate the process from beginning to end so that you can move forward in living your life to its fullest.
Please feel free to contact me for an initial meeting where we can explore your current issues, gather some historical information and at the end of the meeting I am able to give you an informal diagnosis of what I think the core issues are and what is the best way to work through them.
