Psychological therapy for adults (18 years plus)
I am experienced in working with psychological issues ranging from mild-moderate through to severe and longstanding. I have supported individuals with wide ranging psychological difficulties whilst working in a variety of settings including NHS Community Mental Health, NHS Primary care, charities (CRUSE Bereavement , Dorset Rape Crisis), Student Well-being (Winchester University), Primary School (Coopers Lane), and private practice (Christchurch Natural Health, Dr Rosalind Vesey Psychology Services).
I list below some of the difficulties I work with and you are welcome to contact me to discuss your specific needs if they are not covered below
Grief, bereavement and loss
Anxiety (social, health, general, OCD, panic attacks, phobias, trauma)
Excessive worry and preoccupation with the future
Depression and low mood
Low self-confidence and self worth
Impact of abuse (emotional, physical, sexual)
Early life experiences
Lack of clarity and understanding of self
Navigating life changes (e.g, divorce, retirement, new baby, relocating, illness)
Understanding the meaning of your life
Traumatic life experiences
Relationship with food
Living with medically unexplained symptoms
Physical symptoms relating to psychological distress (for example IBS and other digestive disorders, headaches, tinnitus, insomnia, pain, chronic fatigue, tight chest, palpitations etc and many others)
This is not a comprehensive list and if you are unsure whether I can help you please feel free to message me.
I am unable to offer support if you are in acute crisis and require safety from harm so in this case you may need to get NHS team management via your GP or A&E.
