Types of Problems

My work involves enabling people to either safely address and resolve their emotional difficulties or be able to accept and manage them more effectively. The following are examples of presenting problems which I often see in my practice:

Anxiety

Phobias

Post-traumatic stress disorder

Complex post-traumatic stress disorder

Obsessive compulsive disorder

Bipolar disorder

Psychosis

Depression

Low self-esteem

Stress

Grief and bereavement

Dependency/addiction

Poor coping

Relationship issues

Chronic pain

This is not an exhaustive list of the types of problems with which I am able to help. You are invited to call me for a free fifteen minute conversation during which we can discuss your difficulties and options for therapy.

I am unable to offer a service to people whose difficulties are currently being managed by the NHS mental health services where a specialist team of professionals is involved. However, I should be able to offer a service in cases where there is just one other mental health professional involved in the person’s care.

I do not provide a crisis or emergency service. People in need of urgent help ( e.g. who are at immediate risk of harm to themselves) need to access the Accident and Emergency Department or an emergency G.P. appointment.

The Samaritans provides a confidential 24/7 service to people who are feeling suicidal. They can be contacted on 116 123 and https://www.samaritans.org

Out of hours urgent medical advice can be obtained from the NHS 111 service.
