Transactional Analysis Psychotherapist, individuals and couples.

Approach and background

If you are feeling low, anxious or stuck and unable to change things yourself, or repeating difficult or destructive patterns of behaviour, working with and talking with someone not involved in your life can really help. If you are struggling to cope with how life is at the moment or with something from the past, then getting support from me is the first step to feeling supported and heard and we can look at how we can work together to help you make changes in behaviour, relationships, communication and ways of thinking and processing what you are facing. Your emotional and mental well-being matters, and you don’t have to struggle alone.

Together we can explore whatever is causing you pain, anxiety, distress or difficulty. I offer a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space to explore things together. I am specialised in Transactional Analysis Psychotherapy but work in an integrative and relational way to fit your individual aims for therapy.
