Hello, and welcome to my profile. 


Choosing to engage in therapy, or choosing to re-engage in therapy with a new therapist, can be a daunting experience. However, it can also be a life changing one with benefits that may stay with you both inside, and outside the consultation room. I want to thank you then, for taking the time to look at my profile, and consider me as your new therapist. To make this process hopefully as smooth and comfortable as possible for you, I want to let you know the way in which I work, and the experience I come with and draw from in starting therapy together. 

About Me

My name is Christopher Cartner

I am a Psychologist specialising in trauma, sexual health, common mental health problems such as anxiety, depression and stress, Chemsex and LGBT+ affirmative therapy.

My view is that on some level everything makes sense. Meaning, everything we do, however painful or seemingly nonsensical this may be, has its roots in something from our developmental, earlier or experiential life, which has at some point served a purpose for us. Though, these processes and behaviours may lose their effectiveness over time.

If we were to work together, we could look at some of these processes, explore their origin, their benefits, their costs, and together examine whether you would like to keep these, or whether we can explore what can be done to start to let these go.
