I Work With Individuals, Couples & Groups

Individual Therapy

Therapy is unique journey we undertake to gain a deeper awareness of who we are and why we struggle. As we explore and understand we find that we can let go of some things, and other things – somehow we experience them differently.

Couples Therapy

My approach to couples therapy is influenced by the work of Dr Sue Johnson, who identified that at the root of most conflict is the distress of losing a safe connection with our partner. At these times we tend to get stuck in destructive patterns of relating.

Group Therapy

Joining a therapy group can be a really effective way of exploring with others the ways that we relate in groups and perhaps finding new ways to build trust, to connect, to express ourselves openly.

My Approach & Values

Every therapy journey is unique. The direction of your own therapy will unfold as we explore together and the work evolves.

My approach as a therapist is underpinned by a rigorous training in Transactional Analysis Psychotherapy. This body of theory provides tools which can powerfully illuminate the nature of our struggles. Many clients find that having a framework for understanding the root of their difficulties can in itself bring relief and help to normalise their experience.

At a certain point in their therapy many of the people I’ve worked with look back and find it hard to believe how far they’ve come. Their experience of themselves and the world around them is profoundly different. It’s not as though all of life’s problems have gone away, but somehow there is a deep sense of acceptance, of peace, that wasn’t apparent before.

These are some words that I would associate with my experiences of therapy work at different times: softness, depth, incisiveness, courage, acceptance, compassion, commitment, sensitivity, challenge, trust.

“Let difficulty transform you. And it will. In my experience, we just need help in learning how not to run away.”
