The therapeutic process involved in psychotherapy is totally unique to you. It helps identify any problems or concerns you have and understand how they affect your life. Many of my clients not only resolve any immediate concerns they may have, but also learn useful, life-enhancing skills for dealing with future challenges and improving psychological health and wellbeing. Psychotherapy offers a supportive relationship in times of crisis. I can provide a range of approaches to help you change unhelpful feelings, thinking patterns or behaviours, develop a different outlook on life and lead a healthier lifestyle.

Before we arrange your first session, I’ll ask you for some details about what you want to achieve and how you’re feeling at the moment. Your first session will be an assessment. If I don’t feel online therapy is right for you, I’ll be honest and let you know. It may be that I will refer you to someone or something more suitable to meet your needs.
