Whatever the sadness, difficulty or trauma that brings us to look for counselling or psychotherapy, I believe we all already have the potential for self-healing. By talking about ourselves, explaining our actions to another person, we increase our self-understanding, enabling us to identify the possible origins and consequences of our behaviours. As an experienced psychotherapist, I am empathic and non-judgmental. I listen really carefully to what you say and also attend to your body language and what is unsaid. Over time, hopefully you will develop enough trust in the safety and security of our relationship to take your process of self-awareness to a deeper level, where you can choose to explore ways of transforming your behaviour, your thinking, your way of being with my support.
My original training was as a doctor in general practice, where I noticed that psychological distress underlay so much physical illness. Subsequently, I specialised in psychiatry including eating disorders, substance misuse and gender dysphoria. However, since I take a holistic approach to a persons’ problems, and am doubtful of the “quick fix” of medication, I initially began 2 years of a Jungian training but subsequently changed to a 4 year Person-Centred training in psychotherapy.
