Stressful events / Trauma

A clear, life-threatening event can upset people long afterwards. Innocent, stressful events, esp. when young and vulnerable can upset people too, long into adulthood. They shape core beliefs, as if to say “I’m not safe”, “I don’t matter”. You won't believe how quickly we can resolve this.

The Swearing Psychologist

I swear. A lot. We relax, ‘tell it like it is’. What we both want is the truth, not the prettied up version, finding the academic words. They don’t have the same emotional ring as fucked up, or bullshit or whatever. (If you don’t want the swearing, that’s ok too.)

Online and Face2face

When choosing a psychologist, the ‘fit’ is most important – working with someone that ‘you believe’ can help you, and/or that you quickly feel comfortable with. You can always speak with me prior to the first appointment to work this out. Its important that you begin with some confidence.
