About me and my therapy practice
I believe that the quality of the therapeutic relationship, which I see as a collaborative one, plays a crucial factor in the healing process. Although my training has incorporated Psychodynamic Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Trauma (EMDR) Therapy and Humanistic Psychotherapy, I have chosen to focus my way of working primarily on person-centred therapy, which is part of the humanistic approach, and accords most closely with my own philosophy. I also combine different therapeutic tools and approaches to fit the needs of the individual client.
In my work I have helped people improve their emotional well-being and overcome a broad range of difficulties related to: depression, anxiety and panick attacks, bereavement and loss, self-esteem and confidence issues, anger, stress, trauma, as well as relationship related issues. I offer individual and couples counselling.
I work with individuals and couples going through significant life changes e.g. relationship issues, job loss, career change, life-threatening illness, bereavement, mid-life crisis, which result in feelings of isolation, insecurity, desperation and depression. I also have experience of working with sexual abuse, trauma, anger management, anxiety and panic attacks, self-esteem and confidence issues. I have worked for many years with different social and cultural client groups.
My first session
Before making the first appointment I recommend that we have a brief telephone conversation to discuss what you need help with. Following this we will arrange an assessment appointment where I will gather further information about what you have been experiencing and relevant information about your life. Depending on the issues, we can agree how many sessions you might need. Online and telephone sessions are also available.
If I cannot answer your call it is safe to leave a messages and if you wish me to call you back please leave your name, phone number and a convenient time. Similarly, I will always respond to emails as soon as I can.
