Working together is at the heart of psychotherapy. For me this is about listening to you, learning about what you think and feel; learning about your life, both ‘back then’ and now. I am interested in and want to understand how you see yourself and how you interact with others. I listen with no pre-judgements but with an honest and sincere wish to enable you to find a better way of living your life.
As a qualified psychotherapist specialising in eating disorders and having worked with a range of psychological challenges for many years I believe that moving away from your illness is possible.
I view the therapeutic work as one that opens your world to new possibilities. It is about achieving a stronger sense of who you are, of being more resilient, knowing what you want from life and new ways of understanding your relational experiences.
Therapy offers you a time and place that belongs solely to you. Whatever your ‘symptoms’ you are unique through your own life-history. The most important factor for change sits in our relationship. It is a place for you to test out new ways of being and relating that do not have to replicate the past; where trust, respect and being seen and heard can be experienced. I hope that we can work together.
