I work with individuals, couples and groups. My areas of expertise include anxiety, depression, life transitions, parenting, work challenges and organisational dynamics. I have advanced specialist training in all aspects of relationship therapy and couples counselling.
I believe our life purpose is to become who we really are. We are innately creatures of pleasure, satisfaction, meaning and connectedness. We lose track of these core essentials through the hurts and difficulties of living in an imperfect world. Finding our way to live these natural basic truths is the journey of psychotherapy.
Through working on myself I am aware what a challenge it is to change limiting patterns and habits of a lifetime. I also know it is possible to do so, and I have years of dedicated training and experience that help me help others.
For almost twenty years I have been an executive coach and leadership consultant. In my first career I taught eleven to eighteen year olds and led a successful English department. I continue my teaching passion today as Programme Director of a powerful personal development programme at Cranfield School of Management. These interrelated experiences, my love of learning and my curiosity about people enrich my work as a Pesso Boyden therapist.
