About me and my therapy practice
I believe that in a therapeutic relationship that is sincere, warm, genuine and without judgement people will naturally develop their capacity for self-love and self-acceptance.
All too often we are surrounded by harsh critics whose love and approval we sometimes seek. This can lead us to lose touch with who we really are and the life we want to live. It is sometimes this recognition that is the starting point for seeking help in trying to untangle the confusion between our true selves and what others seem to want us to be.
Sometimes we are shaken to the core when it feels like everything is changing and we have lost our sense of safety and of belonging. Our intimate and family relationships break down, our adult children leave home, we retire or lose our jobs, or someone we love dies and we are bereft. Or we suddenly find ourselves at home with young children and the familiar anchors of our identity have shifted and we lose a sense of ourselves.
I believe that psychotherapy offers the possibility to explore our authentic thoughts and feelings and to consider the impact on our lives of events that are happening right now or happened long ago when we were young and defenceless.
I use an Integrative approach to therapy and believe that we all have our own unique potential to live an authentic, creative and meaningful life. Gaining an understanding of how we have been shaped by all of our experiences can help us to better understand our current difficulties and restore our faith in our own perceptions and feelings.
