About Therapy

People come to therapy for all sorts of reasons. The list below is by no means exhaustive but it aims to provide you with a sense of some of the issues and challenges I work with most frequently.

  • Health Anxiety

  • Chronic Illness

  • Low Self-Esteem 

  • Parenting Issues

  • PTSD

  • Relationships and Dating

  • Work and Career


Do you notice yourself overthinking your interactions with friends and family? Worrying and catastrophising about the future? Or ruminating on how people perceive you at work? Anxiety can often creep in and it can be really challenging to both experience and to know what to do with it. If anxiety is something that you experience then therapy can really help with looking at what might be triggering it, as well as exploring techniques to help soothe and manage the symptoms.


As well as being a source of contentment and joy, any type of relationship can also be a source of challenge and difficulty. Whether you are navigating conflict with your partner, feeling insecure within a friendship, or perhaps navigating a complicated relationship within your family - therapy can be transformative in helping to explore and ease these issues. We can work to understand the complexities and nuance of the difficulty and seek to find ways of moving forward in a way that works for you.


Sometimes the workplace can bring all sorts of issues to the fore; a difficult colleague, an ongoing sense of pressure and stress, periods of overwhelm and burn out, or feeling dissatisfied and unmotivated with the place you’re in. You may be unsure of how to advocate for yourself at work or how to manage the anger you feel towards a colleague. Work issues can often be a motivation for starting therapy which can help untangle some of the difficulties that can emerge at work


There can often be an ambivalence about reflecting on our childhoods, sometimes there is a worry about ‘dragging something back up’ from the past or upsetting people within the family, or maybe a question about ‘does it actually matter?’ The early experiences we have within our families are formative and can set up our patterns of relating to others which can often influence us presently in ways we aren’t even consciously aware of. One of the aims of therapy is to bring the unconscious into our conscious awareness which may help with identifying unhelpful repeating patterns and give us some more choice over how we behave.
