Psychotherapy is a process that lends itself to working with problems of a long rather than short term nature. Long term problems have their roots in the clients history, and unresolved issues from the past, with their origins often going back to early childhood. There will often be a need to explore the history in order to minimise the influence of the past on the present so enabling the client to move forward towards leading a healthier, happier and more hopeful life.

The problems of the past are often so severe that they can seriously affect the client’s mental health. Mental health is now being talked 

about much more openly than in the past . A recent report suggested that a significant proportion of the population in the UK will either be experiencing, or know somebody who is experiencing, a problem of mental health. An ever increasing number of people in the public eye are sharing their stories of suffering from a range of psychological conditions such as depression and anxiety. 

But, people who have been diagnosed with a mental health condition still have the potential to lead a healthier and more satisfying life. 

I will work with you to help you develop strategies that will work in conjunction with your medication. My experience it is that whatever comes from within you makes a significant difference to how you are able to live with your condition whatever it might be. I will help you develop the inner resolve that is required to make your life the best that it can still be.


Some examples of the problems my clients have faced are listed below. I have many more examples that I could offer you :

  • Long term depression
  • Chronic anxiety
  • Stress 
  • Living with schizophrenia
  • Recent diagnosis of bi-polar
  • Gambling addiction

‘My depression has largely gone. It has almost been entirely absent for several months. I cannot tell you what a wonderful gift that is’.

‘Coming to see you has made such a difference to my life. I am now living rather just existing from day by day. I have a sense of purpose. I have a future. I am beginning to feel that I have a life that is worth living’.
