Areas of expertise

People seek therapy for a wide variety of reasons. I offer sessions to people age 18 and over. Below is a list of descriptions of difficulties that I commonly work with (please note, this list is not exhaustive):

  • Anxiety

  • Stress

  • Low mood

  • Depression 

  • Anger

  • Shame

  • Problems with self-esteem and self-confidence

  • Perfectionism

  • Self-criticism

  • Repeating unwanted patterns in life or relationships

  • Adjustment to changing or changed life circumstances

  • Work related difficulties such as 'burnout, changes in role, feeling like an imposter, loss of direction'

  • Study related difficulties

  • Feeling unfulfilled and dissatisfied with life

It may be that the problems you are experiencing are not listed here, or you are unsure of how to describe the difficulties. If you would like to explore this and whether I could help, then please do contact me.

I am unfortunately not usually able to begin therapy in private practice with people in the following circumstances.

If people:

  • Are at high risk of suicide 

  • Are self-harming

  • Have received a diagnosis of schizophrenia or are presenting with psychosis

  • Are experiencing difficulties with alcohol dependency or substance misuse

  • Have been diagnosed with an eating disorder

  • Are involved in ongoing legal proceedings

  • Are located outside of the UK 

It may be that in these circumstances seeking support from the NHS or from another practitioner or service specialising in these areas could be advantageous. 

Urgent help

I am regrettably not able to offer an emergency or crisis service. If you feel that you or someone else is at serious risk, or that you are experiencing a mental health emergency then you can:

  • Call 999 to contact the emergency services 

  • Attend the relevant emergency services department. 

There is also NHS advice available on how to seek urgent support on the NHS website:
