ABOUT

  1. How I work
    We all have times in our lives when seemingly overwhelming difficulties like depression, anxiety or stress. Sometimes it feels like we're struggling in a relationship and don't know why. At times like this it can be beneficial to enlist the help of a trained professional, who will listen and try to understand without judgement. I can provide a space where we can work together to help you understand your particular situation, looking at things that happened in your past that influence how you manage things in the present. Understanding these things can help you manage your life more effectively now and in the future. We can meet for either a set number of sessions (6 to 12) or for as long as required (open ended), each session lasting 50 minutes at the same time each week.
