My approach to therapy

We all need a little help at times as being human is difficult! My approach to therapy is to give you what you need at this time in your life and is informed by my training as a clinical psychologist. We can think together about how I can best support you to overcome your fears and live a better life, and I always tailor my approach to your individual preferences and needs. Training as a clinical psychologist has given me the advantage of being able to draw on a variety of approaches to therapy that can help people make changes that make a real difference, such as:

- Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
- Solution Focused Therapy (SFT)
- Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
- Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT)

I also have a diploma in online counselling, and I am passionate about working as an online therapist. I very much enjoy seeing the benefits of working with people via video, instant messaging and email.


Welcome. ABOUTME

About me

One of the reasons I am so passionate about what I do is that I know that therapy can make a difference. It really can change your life! I spent so much of my life thinking that I was worthless and a failure, in addition to being paralysed by fear. I lived to please others, constantly striving for perfection to feel loved and worthwhile, whilst a critical voice inside my head told me constantly that I was not good enough. I put on a brave face to others, worried that if they knew how I really felt they would think less of me, think I was weak. I got to the point where I felt so fed up, stuck and trapped that I knew something had to change. I wanted more out of life.

Acceptance and commitment therapy, mindfulness and self-compassion have helped me to change my life. To recognise that I am human, and being human is tough – there’s no manual! That life can be hard and why on earth wouldn’t I feel rubbish at times?! That being human means experiencing both pleasant and unpleasant emotions – and it’s not a sign of weakness to experience the unpleasant, uncomfortable ones. It’s ok not to be ok. I’m now able to allow that fear, anger and sadness to be there and listen to what it’s telling me, and to use that to guide me towards what I need. I’ve learned to connect with what truly matters to me, deep in my heart, and to use that to discover who I want to be, and what I want to do in life.

I have let go of always striving to be perfect, and of always trying to prove myself to others and seeking their approval. I have embraced my relationship with myself and learned that I am enough. Just as I am. I have nothing to prove. I am me and that’s ok. Doing this allows me to be present in my own life and to enjoy all that I choose to have in it. To be free. To find a good balance between doing all the things that enrich my life and make it meaningful - doing the work I love, being with nature, practising yoga, going on adventures and spending time with family and friends whom I love dearly.


What I offer

I currently offer therapy in the UK supporting people aged 18 and over via video, instant messaging or email. Please see the How it works page of this website for more information on the different options for therapy.

As an online therapist, the service I offer is unlikely to be suitable to meet your needs if you are in crisis or feeling suicidal. I would recommend that you discuss your situation with your GP, access face to face support and consider using other resources, such as the Samaritans. Their national freephone number is 116 123, you can email [email protected] or attend a local branch. Please also see the Feeling in crisis page of this website.
