About therapy

Therapy can help you feel less alone with your distress and can assist you in getting to the root of what is going on. By exploring your thoughts, feelings and experiences in the context of a safe and confidential relationship, you can expand your awareness and understanding of yourself and others.

Part of this means looking at how experiences and relationships from earlier in your life are affecting things now. And part of this means learning to be with your present-day experience in a different way – becoming more mindful and curious about your emotions, your mind and your body.

Having been in therapy myself, I know first-hand that the process and effects can be profound. Ultimately, therapy is about really getting to know yourself and, through this, gaining more freedom, fulfilment and self-acceptance.

​I work with people who come to therapy looking for an open-ended exploration of themselves, without a clear "problem" in mind. I also work with people experiencing a range of specific issues, including:

  • Anxiety

  • Depression

  • Stress

  • Chronic physical pain & somatic symptoms (read more about my work with this here)

  • Trauma and PTSD

  • Relationship difficulties

  • Bereavements

  • Difficulties in childhood

  • Abuse 

  • Low self-esteem

  • Loneliness 

  • Oppression and discrimination e.g. racism, sexism, classism, homophobia, biphobia, transphobia, ableism, disablism

  • Exploring your relationship to sex and/or working on specific sexual difficulties 

  • Exploring your sexuality

  • Exploring your gender – including gender dysphoria and transition

  • Addictions, phobias and obsessions

  • Self-harm

  • Eating disorders
