Personal Statement

I’m an integrative psychological therapist, meaning I can work in a number of different ways with you, depending on your needs. For example, some people like to work in a way that helps them to challenge unhelpful thoughts and behaviours (CBT), or others prefer less structure with space to process how they feel (person centred).

I have really varied therapeutic experiences and have worked in various universities with young people, specialist sexual trauma services within the NHS, GP surgeries,  general psychiatric settings and various employee assistance programmes. I have experience in working with people at lots of different stages in their life. I can work with you in both longer term or shorter term.

For me, the starting point for therapy is the therapeutic relationship,  I can offer you a safe, non judgmental and empathic confidential space for you to begin to unpack whatever it is you want to work on. 

Therapy can give you the space to begin to connect to painful feelings and safely process them, and can also give you the space to vocalise how you are feeling. Therapy can assist in helping you to feel more equipped to make any changes you'd like to make in your life.In the first session we will spend some time talking about what has brought you to therapy, and perhaps about what you'd like to gain from sessions, and if you've any goals.
