Individual Therapy

Psychology’s imperative demand of its clients is to mobilize their own resources and to heal themselves

through their own strengths – Nell

 

If we are not regularly deeply embarrassed by who we are, the journey to self-knowledge hasn’t begun. – Alain de Botton

 

The relationship between therapist and patient is not that of parent and child, or that of lovers or siblings… “But it can illustrate the essence of relationships. The light shed by a good relationship illuminates all relationships.”Anne Morrow Lindbergh

My work often involves helping people to navigate difficult life stages, such as relationship difficulties, becoming a parent, or the loss of a loved one. I have particular interest and experience in working with:

 

  • Womxn’s Mental Health

  • Navigating New Parenthood

  • Body/Image, Exercise and Eating Disorders

  • Anxiety Disorders

  • Depression

  • Grief and Bereavement

  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder

  • Parenting/Family Relationship Problems and Divorce

  • Relationship Difficulties

  • Sexual Problems

  • Work/Lifestyle Stressors

I believe that responsible clinicians should also acknowledge their areas of professional limitation. I therefore tend to refer clients who are struggling with active addictions, physically abusive interpersonal behaviours, and/or Antisocial Personality traits to colleagues who specialise in these areas.
