How can I help you?

If you're experiencing any kind of challenge in life, therapy can help.

Family relationships


Work based stress / dynamics


Depression, bipolar, psychosis & anxiety




Who is therapy for?


Sessions for adults exploring needs at different life stages from exploring your place in the world, work troubles, relationships, mood, emotional difficulties.


Sessions for women exploring how hormones interact with our emotions, navigating the challenging world of fertility issues and relationship problems.


We don’t choose our family and relationships can often be challenging to make sense of and navigate through. I work with families exploring how they support each other in difficult times, how to work best as a team, reflecting on the past when it feels helpful to do so and focusing on the present and future relationships.


Historically men haven’t sought therapy for their problems but thankfully that is changing. Therapy can be important particularly when it feels hard to talk to anyone about one’s emotions, challenges in work and relationships and trauma in one’s past.
