Having reached my website, you are probably looking for some help to resolve a problem, or to make deeper changes in how you see yourself, the quality of your life or how you relate to others. Sometimes this may be a feeling that things are "not quite right" or you are living in a way that no longer works for you. You might think that your reactions to events are self limiting, that you are not enjoying your relationships or have difficulty managing relationships in one or more areas of your life. Alternatively, you may recognise some of the problems listed above. These often involve heightened levels of stress or anxious thoughts and feelings, or deepening low modes and an experience of being deflated with low energy and negative thinking. If this sounds familiar then please get in touch for an initial meeting using the link on the right side of this page or my contact page.

"Shame feels like a solitary pain, and a chronic shame seems like a personal failing caused by ones own negative thinking and low self esteem. But in fact, shame in all forms is relational. Shame is the experience of self-in-relation when in relation is ruptured or disconnected, a chronic sense of self in disconnection becomes a profound sense of isolation, which in turn leads to feelings of despair and unworthiness."
Patricia A. DeYoung in chronic shame 2015


My Approach

Deciding to seek help from psychotherapy or counseling can feel like a daunting first step. My approach is to take time to hear what is troubling you and work with you to explore the behavioural patterns, thoughts, feelings and sensations associated with what you are experiencing. From these we can begin to understand the conscious and unconscious messages and beliefs that influence how you live your life.

The Paradoxical Theory of Change
"...that change occurs when one becomes what he is, not when he tries to become what he is not. Change does not take place through a coercive attempt by the individual or by another person to change him, but it does take place if one takes the time and effort to be what he is...." Arnold Beisser, M.D.


Often what we experience as problems or troubles result from what has happened to us either earlier in life, recently or both. I think we deal with events and circumstances in the best way we can at the time. However, sometimes these old beliefs we form about ourselves, others and ways of coping may no longer be useful for how we want to live now. We hold these beliefs outside of our awareness or unconsciously and over time they become deeply embedded. As a consequence it can be difficult to make changes by ourselves. " its like the eye trying to see its self" This is where having a safe place to explore and be supported with a qualified experienced psychotherapist can help.

I will support you in exploring your beliefs, deciding what changes you want to make and help you find ways to put these into action. For example, this might mean being supported in developing a better relationship with yourself which then enables you to build better relationships with others
