Two peoplePeople have many different reasons for turning to therapy. Some feel overwhelmed by their problems and know they need to talk them through. Others may feel stuck, depressed, anxious, unhappy or ‘on the edge’, without being sure exactly why, and know they need support to tease out what is at the root of their distress.  Others may have suffered an event such as a bereavement or an accident, which has left them in distress and unable to function as well as they would wish.

The most common problems I come across are depression, anxieties, career problems, and couples & relationship issues. Whatever your reasons for reading this far, I’d say don’t sit with your problem and suffer for too long. The comment I hear most often from clients is that they wish they’d started sooner. We begin with an initial consultation or  ‘assessment’, followed by an agreed number of 50-minute sessions, usually at the same time each week, for as long as you want or need to continue
