Psychotherapy and Counselling

Talking can be a deeply healing experience


Therapy and counselling can facilitate your journey to living with the freedom to experience joy, intimacy, spontaneity, and awareness.

Therapy offers you a neutral space in which you can be deeply heard. A place for you, where you and your experiences are valued and validated.

While I know a lot of things about psychotherapy and how humans’ function in the world, I don’t know you, and so we’ll work together to understand what you want from therapy.

We are all unique and I welcome clients in a respectful and open-minded way, providing a robust and confidential space in which to work.


Whether you think you can or you think you can't. You are right.

Henry Ford


How long will therapy last?

Life is busy. With ever growing expectations balancing relationships, family, work and responsibilities can be challenging.

Therapy can help you to feel more grounded, confident and competent in the way you want to live your life.  I believe each of us deserves to live freely with confidence, enabling us to live a fulfilling and purposeful life.

Working together short term can help you get some clarity and look at effective strategies. Identifying more options and possibilities can support you to approach your life with renewed awareness. You may be dealing with a loss or something that's weighing on you, from the past or present, and want to talk things through. I think of short term as around 6-18 sessions.

My aim will be to facilitate a space where you can gain more insight. By appreciating how your behaviours directly influence your life choices, you'll have more flexibility in how you move forward.

Psychotherapy also supports the desire to explore your deeper experiences and gain insight into how the past affects the present. Your old habits of thinking and feeling have a direct impact on how you behave, and often keeps you stuck in the same old repeated patterns. Change takes time and commitment to explore, identify, accept, and integrate the change you desire. For those interested in gaining a deeper appreciation, acceptance, and change, it is usual for me to work therapeutically with you between 6 months and 3 years (...and often much longer).

A healthy part of good therapy is to review what you want from your therapy along the way to make sure you're getting what you want from your investment. 

How will we work together?

As a Certified Transactional Analyst I use TA, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and BrainSpotting (BSP). These models integrate well offer an easily accessible framework that enables us to make sense of here-and-now problems and understand how your habits affect your decisions and choices. Some habits are behavioural, others are internalised into your thinking, emotional and relational landscape.

For relationship problems, I use Imago Relationship Therapy for individuals and couples. Imago is a way of being in relationship with others that celebrates the joy of connection. It has many practical everyday tools for talking about whatever gets in the way of your enjoyment and contentment. I'm a Certified Imago Relationship Therapist and Imago workshop co-presenter. 

Bringing a mind and body approach to therapy encourages the use of your somatic experiences. Your body gives you all sorts of signs and signals that you may not be attuned to yet. On the flip side, you may find yourself overwhelmed and unable to think clearly. Somatic mindfulness is particularly useful for depression, stress and anxiety, and for a sense of balance and wellbeing. Being mindful means you can stay grounded as you move through the therapy process.

Central to the therapeutic process is the unique relationship which develops between you and me. Together we create an empathetic, energising, and reflective environment which supports you in exploring your values, offering you the space to decide what you want and which direction you want to take.
