Thinking about Therapy/Counselling/Psychotherapy?
Welcome to my website.
Are you experiencing difficulties in your personal and professional life?
Have you been considering seeking help through talking therapy?
Have you held off doing so waiting for the right time?
Maybe that time is now... a good enough time to begin a journey of transformation through therapeutic endeavour.
Are you interested in exploring your thoughts and feelings to develop insight into your state of mind and relationship with others?
To work on unhelpful ways of relating with yourself and with others that leave you feeling depleted, distressed, confused, frustrated and a lot of other types of feelings?
Do you want to effect lasting positive change in your inner world and external life?
Then counselling/therapy/psychotherapy could be helpful in supporting you with this process.
Maybe now is the time to give it a go or to have an initial session to explore the possibility of giving it a go. Complex difficulties can take some time to work through. It just depends on your needs.
It is still possible during the corona-19 lockdown/restrictions to have face to face sessions or via remote video contact such as FaceTime, Whats App, Whereby.com, Zoom or telephone call.
There are different types of counselling/psychotherapy approaches. I am a qualified and registered psychodynamic psychotherapist. I have a diverse interest in mental health difficulties and conditions. I work with adults and older teenagers on an open-ended basis or for an agreed time period.
I have a background in mental health nursing having trained and worked in the NHS since 1991. I continue to work part-time in the NHS and have a part-time private psychotherapy practice.
In the mid 1990s I began psychotherapy training and clinical practice alongside my nursing career working both in in-patient and community services with adults and with children & young people and their families. I began my career in Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire. I have been a practising psychotherapist in South East Cornwall since 2005. I am committed to providing psychotherapy/talking therapy in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental way.
I am experienced in helping clients with a wide range of mental health difficulties including depression, low mood, anxiety, trauma, personality difficulties, emotional instability, trauma, sexual abuse, eating disorders, stress, relationship difficulties, family/parent and marital/couple work, transitions, bereavement, older age, obsessions, psychosomatic symptoms, panic attacks.
I also offer clinical supervision to doctors, psychotherapists, therapists, psychologists, nurses and allied healthcare workers in the private and public sector.
