* Right Brain Answer (a more emotionally visceral response)
I love listening to people talking from their heart and soul. I have also experienced my own heart and soul being listened to on many occasions, which is a truly wonderful experience. I hope everyone can experience this in their lives. When we connect with someone on this level our natural self emerges and the answers that we need arrive spontaneously from the dynamic of the intimate relationship.
* Left Brain Answer (a more logical scientific response)
I am a UKCP accredited attachment-based psychotherapist with 12 years experience and I’m a qualified physics teacher, with ten years experience. I have a passion for working with people who want to learn about their own worlds, both outer and inner worlds. We need others to understand ourselves. As Einstein said , ‘no problem can be solved from the mind that created it.’
Research on the best psychotherapists has revealed that being humane and interested in people is a major characteristic needed for the best outcome for clients.

Most people would have no problem seeking professional help for a broken bone, but would be less likely to look for help when they have an emotional problem.
How long will I need counselling or therapy for?
This varies and is up to you. I would recommend at least 4 sessions to start with to explore all the basics tools that you need to help yourself with your emotions so that you can continue to 'self- therapy' without a therapist. Some people like to look at themselves deeply and decide on therapy for several months. It is important for us together to always check that you are growing emotionally whilst in therapy. The importance of a therapist is to teach you how to allow your natural growth. The therapist is just a catalyst to foster your independence and then interdependence so that you can live life to it's full potential.
Will therapy help me?
I have a belief that therapy can help anyone. Of course the match between the therapist and the client is very important. After the first session we will decide together if we feel that a working relationship can be established.
