About me and my therapy practiceA successful therapeutic relationship is established with skill and experience. Empathy, understanding and acceptance are the catalyst for change and personal growth. Individuals know what is best or good for them; it is inherent in all of us. Sometimes, we lose sight of this and begin to think and feel in a negative or irrational way. We lose our ability to resolve our own, personal issues and cease to live in a positive and productive way. We begin to make poor choices and decisions. We can feel depressed, anxious, trapped, confused, isolated, empty and lost. My aim within the therapeutic relationship is to help you realize your potential, make better choices and find meaning and purpose within your life. You can learn how to manage negative and distressful thought patterns and behaviors. I provide a non-judgmental, pressure free space where you can explore your thoughts and feelings. You can develop a clearer understanding of who you are, find a resolve to your internal conflict and live a more positive life. I'm here to help you explore, understand and manage your difficulties. I have worked within the Third Sector for many years, the Primary Care Trust (NHS) Connexions, schools, GP's surgeries and in private practice. The training and experience I have gained over the years has given me knowledge and understanding of an integrated range of theories, techniques and applications that have enhanced my skills.
