About Me

Having trained at Regent’s University in existential-phenomenological therapy I work chiefly in a phenomenological fashion within a relational framework.   ‘Phenomenon’ is what comes into the light, and ‘logos’ is word.  A pluralistic background means I can bring insights from other models such as cognitive-behavioural and psychodynamic.
 
I offer an initial assessment where we will look at the issues that bring you to therapy and decide whether you want to carry on to have sessions.  The terms and conditions are negotiated in advance.  If agreed we will have a dialogue in which we will explore your life as you experience it, the conflicts and dilemmas that have brought you to therapy, and through a process of clarification and reflection, look for a way forward.  An appreciation of existential thought and philosophy brings us away from looking at human problems as medical illnesses for which there is a medical cure. 

I work in a short-term and a long-term manner.
