At times, life can feel incredibly challenging and it's ok to ask for support with whatever you're experiencing. My role as a therapist is to provide an environment in which you can work through those challenges at a pace that works for you. Some difficulties have roots in the past and feel complex and difficult to untangle without professional help. Some challenges are more firmly in the here and now, but you might be struggling to make sense of what's going on. I'm here to support you through that and find meaningful ways forward.
I prefer my clients to set their own agenda for their therapy, which means you will be in the driving seat the whole time.
Do you live with almost permanent feelings of tension, anxiousness, fear, low mood, overwhelm, or irritability? Sometimes we experience distressing things in life that, without us realising, leave an imprint on our bodies and emotions. This can be something severe, like a one-off traumatic incident, or a chronically traumatic childhood. Less 'traumatic' experiences can also have a similar impact on the body and our emotions. Often because of the lack of support we receive when they happen. Examples might be our parents divorcing when we were young, being sacked unexpectedly, someone close to us dying or witnessing a death. EMDR is a type of therapy that processes and desensitizes difficult experiences and trauma, so that they become less overwhelming and feel more manageable. Find out more ..
Most corporate roles offer training and development opportunities. Sometimes, however, we find we have persistent difficulties at work, and the training or mentoring doesn't quite hit the mark. Sometimes, the problem lies more deeply within us, and coaching can help to shine a light on what is really going on.
Sometimes, the problem lies within our environment. We might be experiencing discrimination, harassment, a toxic work culture or burn-out, but assuming that we're 'just not good enough'. This is particularly common for women and people from minority groups within the workplace.
I bring together my psychotherapeutic and coaching skills to enable a full and deep exploration of your experiences of yourself and others at work, so that you can develop your self-awareness, find new ways of working with others, make the right decisions for you, and see yourself and your potential differently.
