Why therapy?

If you are feeling anxious or overwhelmed, directionless, struggle with low self-esteem or self-critical thoughts, I can help.

I offer a confidential, non-judgmental space for you to bring whatever difficulty is present in your life right now. My approach is empathic and supportive and my aim is to help you with strategies to manage difficult thoughts and feelings. Together we will explore your relationship with yourself and others, and the underlying issues and patterns of behaviour that may be getting in the way of leading a richer, more rewarding life.

As an experienced therapist, I will work with you to utilise strategies to manage whatever brings you to seek therapy but I believe it is also important to understand and address the underlying issues in order to effect real change.

Regardless of what brings you to therapy – anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, work difficulties, issues with food – whatever it is, therapy can provide an opportunity to move beyond patterns and beliefs that get in the way of real change in order to bring about something new and something better.
