I work generally with adults facing common human difficulties. We all go through rocky periods in our lives and therapy can help you smooth a way forward. Some examples of how therapy can help you move through difficulties include:
Understanding what might be causing problems and repetitive patterns.
Clarifying what direction you want to take in your life.
Exploring problems with intimate relationships or family members.
Exploring difficulties in relating to and accempting yourself
Managing emotions and thoughts more effectively
In particular, I have worked extensively with bereavement, domestic violence, trauma and adult survivors of childhood adversity. My doctoral thesis was on emotions in adult survivors of childhood abuse and I have worked in a hospice service for bereaved families and an agency for women in violent relationships. I am trained in EMDR (eye-movement desensitisation and reprocessing) a government-recommended treatment for trauma. I have also had specific training in working with couples.
In addition, over the duration of my career I have helped clients work through issues including (although not exhaustive):
Anxiety (including generalised anxiety disorder (GAD), Panic, Phobias)
Bereavement (including complex, traumatic and delayed grief)
Chronic fatigue syndrome/ME
Depression (including postnatal depression, seasonal affective disorder (SAD) and suicidal thoughts)
Eating disorders (including binge eating and bulimia)
Low self-confidence and esteem
Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD)
Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
Pregnancy and birth
Relationship issues (including couples in cross cultural relationships, family issues including in-laws, domestic violence, pre-nuptial counselling, separation and divorce, affairs and betrayals)
Work-related stress (including perfectionism, redundancy, harassment and bullying)
