Therapy

I work with adults of all ages and backgrounds and with young people who are old enough to benefit from talking therapy (this depends very much on the individual and will be assessed at initial contact).

I have experience with many issues including:

  • anxiety, stress, phobias, panic, obsessive behaviour (OCD)
  • depression, low self-esteem, lack of confidence
  • anger problems
  • self-harm, suicidal thoughts
  • reactions to traumatic events, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
  • sexual, physical and emotional abuse and neglect in childhood and adult life
  • loss and bereavement
  • health problems
  • Asperger Syndrome
  • problematic patterns of relating to others
  • difficulties with intimate partner, family and other interpersonal relationships
  • studying, workplace and career difficulties and lack of motivation
  • difficulties adjusting to life changes
  • sexual and gender identity issues
  • social and cultural alienation and general identity issues
  • spirituality and faith issues
  • lack of meaning or purpose in life

 

Some difficulties are not easy to put into words and do not have an obvious ‘label’, in which case I help people clarify their concerns before discussing how we might address them. I am very experienced in dealing with complex issues and work with a number of clients in long term therapy.

If you would like to discuss coming to see me for an initial no-obligation session to discuss your needs please contact me using the details on the Contact page.
