For the last 20 years I have been supporting others who are struggling with emotional instability or mental health issues within The NHS, public, private and voluntary sectors undertaking therapeutic work face-to-face and on-line.

Emotional & Psychological Well-being
As a psychotherapeutic therapist I work in a holistic way looking at your past, present and future. .
In the main I work with the relational, psycho-spiritual and psychodynamic Connections Model . Which explores interrelationships to the four aspects of self (mind, emotion, body and soul). the relationship being central to theory. Connection to the four aspects creates harmonious balance in health and well-being but, disconnection leaves a fragmented loss of self leading to possible mental health issues. The Connections model then forms my choice, integrating different theory and techniques of The Person-Centred Approach (PCA), Gestalt, CBT and Transpersonal, which enables me to individually tailor treatment as we are all unique - (likewise any difficulties we encounter).
Counselling looks to target certain areas that are holding you back and often is a short focused piece of work unlike psychotherapy. This way of working is more in-depth and can take longer as it concentrates on difficult feelings or ingrained negative patterns of thoughts or behaviours. By looking at an individuals past, present and future as a team we join together on a path towards self-discovery, fulfilment and empowerment. You no longer have to be alone in this.
