Personal Statement

I have experience helping people with anxiety, stress, depression and low mood, bereavement, life transition, psychological aspects of migraine and other chronic pain issues, sexuality and other identity issues and relationship difficulties. I also have experience of helping people explore and work through more general concerns to do with a sense of discomfort, 'just not feeling right' and a sense of recurring life patterns or themes. 

 

The main models of therapy underpinning my work as a psychotherapist are Transactional Analysis and Relational Psychotherapy. Transactional Analysis looks at how we become who we are, and how we grow and change during the course of life. Relational Psychotherapy is an approach which believes in the centrality of the therapeutic relationship as the significant agent for change and successful therapy.
