"We have to believe that we are more than the sum of our symptoms. When we settle for anything less, we limit our recovery, because we allow ourselves to be defined by what happened to us: the over-sensitisation of our neurobiology and the fragmentation of our sense of self. Recovery means that we connect the dots between all the different parts of ourselves: the different experiences, emotions, outlooks; the desires, and hopes and fears; and we become the person that we truly are, the whole that is greater than the sum of all its parts. I had to believe that I was more than a collection of symptoms, and forge forwards into the entirety of my being."

Do You Need Urgent Help?

If you are struggling at the moment, and need someone to talk to, please fill out the form below and I will get back to you as soon as I can.


During Covid-19 restrictions, I am continuing to offer therapy via Zoom video, which I can help introduce you to if you are unfamiliar using. When appropriate, I will resume meeting in-person.

Please get in touch if you’d value support.

During this challenging time I am offering a free initial 20 minute meeting for individuals over 18 years old.
