About me and my therapy practice
I believe that therapy is as individual and unique as the client attending. Therapy can only be meaningful and transformative if it fits into the context of one's own self-identity, values and beliefs.
To this end I offer an integrative approach that draws from the three modalities in which I am experienced: person-centred, psychodynamic and cognitive behavioural therapies. By utilising discreet aspects of each we work together to identify patterns and how our life experiences and relationships growing up contributed to their development. We consider how useful these patterns are in your present day life and which aspects might be helpful to change and adapt. Using the core beliefs of person-centred therapy we identify goals that will contribute to developing a healthier view of yourself, changing relationship patterns and behaviours, and living an authentic and fulfilling life. This might be done through developing self awareness, setting short and long term goals, and practicing skills.
It is important that you always feel in control of your process and that it is meaningful and beneficial to you. This includes consideration and respect for your culture, religion and self-identity.
An essential element of this will be the relationship you are able to build with your therapist. My therapeutic approach is collaborative and aims to empower you with the self-awareness, knowledge and skills to make the decisions and changes that are important and useful to you.

My first session
During our first session I may take some information from you. Privacy and confidentiality is of utmost importance and you will be handed a copy of our Privacy & Confidentiality Statement.
We will consider your reasons for coming to therapy, what your hopes and goals are and how we can achieve these together. Together we will agree on a therapeutic plan, time period and fee rate.
It is important that this assessment session is meaningful to you and offers answers and clarification to any questions or concerns you might have.
