Psychotherapy can help at times when we feel isolated or experiencing a major life change, such as:
- relationship issues
- panic disorder
- Issues of sexuality and gender can be discussed in an open and honest way
- family issues can be explored without tension, guilt or recrimination.
Psychotherapy should feel supportive but also challenging - how else will your life take on a different course? Working together we will identify your negative thinking patterns and work on solutions that can open your life to new possibilities.
At the first session we can explore your situation, how you are feeling and your expectations of therapy - there is no obligation on you to commit to further sessions nor any commitment required to a minimum number of sessions.
I accept cash or debit/credit cards at the end of each session.
Off-street parking is available at Wimbledon.
My Training, qualifications & experience:
My training is integrative which means that I draw upon a range of different therapeutic models but is essentially humanistic and existential. This means that I value your subjective experience and in our sessions the work will be tailored to your individual needs.
