In our work together I might ask you about your early life relationships. This is because I often incorporate an Attachment-based approach to my work, which means that I pay particular attention to the client’s early relationships with their caregivers. Our difficulties very often stem from these connections with our parents, our family and our experiences at school. These very relationships often shape how we feel, how we think and how we behave in our here-and-now relationships and in general in our adult life.

You may want to focus on understanding how you relate to others, but it is also important for us to explore how you relate to yourself. Whatever difficulties you are experiencing, we can explore them together and find a way forward that suits you.

The way I work is integrative which means I am able to draw from different therapeutic approaches such as humanistic, psychodynamic, relational, existential, behavioural and body psychotherapy depending on the individual’s needs. I also offer mindfulness-based cognitive therapy in my work with clients who are affected by intrusive thoughts and rumination, especially when these dominate their days and lives. By using different therapeutic skills I am able to tailor my approach to each situation that is brought up by the client during our sessions.

In addition to my regular clients I also work with trainee counsellors, qualified therapists and mental health practitioners.
