What is Psychotherapy?
The aim of psychotherapy is to provide a setting for you to take stock of yourself and your situation in life. Often people come to psychotherapy because of they want to feel better – psychotherapy can help the way you feel, and it can also help you become more like the person you would like to be. Common issues include:
What sort of psychotherapy is best for me?
The two schools of psychotherapy that I find most useful are existential psychotherapy and cognitive behavioural psychotherapy (CBT). Existential Psychotherapy provides for a more open-ended taking stock of oneself. Cognitive-Behavioural Psychotherapy focuses sharply on helping deal with emotional difficulties such as anxiety, depression and low self-esteem. My own work draws on both schools – I aim to combine the sort of open, reflective environment that is the strength of existential psychotherapy with the methods and techniques that make CBT one of the most effective psychotherapies.
What are your qualifications?
I am a UKCP accredited psychotherapist. I trained originally at the School of Psychotherapy, Regents College in 1989 –1994. I have been in private practice for over ten years and am the author of Wise Therapy in which I describe my way of working.

By becoming aware of your thoughts, and substituting realistic thoughts for unrealistic ones, you can overcome emotional difficulties such as depression, anxiety as well as low self-esteem and relationship issues.
