About me and my therapy practice
Choosing the right therapist is such an important first step. For such personal and important work you need to find someone you feel you can trust, work closely with and of course, talk with. I am humbled by clients opening up their private inner-worlds to me and it is a privilege that I will always honour and treat with great care and respect.
It is equally important that the therapist you choose to work with has undertaken professional accredited training, and is registered with the relevant professional bodies. I am a qualified and registered Psychotherapeutic Counsellor with further post-graduate training in Integrative Psychotherapy.
How I work.
My job is to meet you where you are at right now and relate to you on a very human level. It's about you being heard and understood then together finding a way forward. It's about using simple, down-to-earth language moving at your pace and with endless patience.
My core belief is that the therapeutic relationship is central to the healing process in therapy. I give every client my genuine interest and endeavour to create an open, friendly, calm, compassionate and non-judgmental environment to work in.
My working style is based around "integrative practice" where the treatment methods are always tailored to suit the client’s unique needs and learning / exploring preferences. Counselling is definitely not "one size fits all". No single approach is necessarily flexible enough to be helpful to all.
I am keen to offer mindfulness, breathing and imagery work as part of therapy. Therapeutically, I find mindfulness techniques particularly effective when working with anxiety, panic, emotional difficulties and even pain management. Mindfulness practice can also be something that a client can continue long after ending therapy increasing autonomy, empowerment and ongoing wellbeing.
