Seeing The World Through Your Eyes
One of the great problems of human beings is that we’re far too good at keeping going. We’re experts at surrendering to the demands of the external world, living up to what is expected of us and getting on with the priorities as others around us define them.

Services I Provide
I work with people aged 18 years and over from many different social, economic, ethnic and cultural backgrounds. I genuinely value building safe and secure relationships with clients. This is everything in terms of therapy.
My intention is to be with you, while we both explore what is going on for you. This is without judgement or expectation. It is about noticing and reflecting. It is about being on your side. I listen carefully and aim to see the world through your eyes. I accept you for the person you are, not the person you feel you need to be.
In experiencing this, it may be possible to look at the things you have been turning away from. These are the things that may have been quietly, or loudly, asking for your attention. They may currently feel too painful, sorrowful, embarrassing, or shameful to look at on your own.
Part of our work together is about developing greater self-understanding. Through support and challenge, we work reciprocally to create moments of clarity, enhancing your relationship with yourself. This is about learning to give yourself the kindness and compassion you would unhesitatingly offer a valued friend.
If you would like to work with me, we will arrange a time for an Initial Consultation appointment which lasts approximately 50 minutes. During this session, I will take a background history and ask some questions so that I can begin to understand what has led you to reach out for support at this point in time. I will also talk you through our working agreement and answer any questions you may have. At this point, if I feel there is another therapist who is more aligned to meet your therapeutic needs, I will provide an appropriate referral.
Depending on what has brought you to therapy, we will agree a number of appointments, usually on a weekly basis. At regular intervals, we will review how you feel therapy is working for you and adapt timescales and approaches accordingly.
