Psychotherapy and Counselling

Offering emotional support for anxiety, relationship difficulties, and trauma.

How I Work

I provide psychodynamically informed therapy - this means that I try to understand your early life experiences, including with your family, schooling and friendships, and how they may have impacted how you are living today.  We are often shaped by parents and caregivers, although we don't always see the link between 'then and now'.

Personalized Approach

I believe that each individual is unique and therefore I tailor our therapy sessions to meet your specific needs and goals. I use talking therapy, and where appropriate, I use EMDR.  EMDR is a proven, NHS-approved method of processing traumatic memories through a series of eye movements.

Safe and Confidential

I am particularly interested in working with men who are having difficulties in negotiating relationships, or who are finding life hard to deal with.  Men are often overlooked, or feel they cannot express feelings of sadness or vulnerability - yet we can feel anxious, sad and overwhelmed too.

Growing up gay can be a difficult experience, and being understood both as a teenager and as an adult isn't always easy.  With me, you will have that understanding. 

Whether you are straight, gay or bi, I can support you to process current difficulties in a way that keeps you stable in the present, while looking at your what's bothering you.
