About me and my therapy practice

MY WORK COVERS; family & childhood, health, body aches & pains, eating, addiction, depression, anxiety, stress, trauma, PTSD, Complex PTSD, attachment, relationships, codependency.

INDIVIDUAL WORK; My focus with individuals is based in Transactional Analysis (TA) Psychotherapy, which for me is a really accessible form of therapy & one that made total sense to me when I started personal therapy. I also believe that all experiences & emotions are stored in the body, so often I invite clients to notice what’s happening in their bodies & how their body is responding to the situation or thought. I am a ‘why’ person & believe you need to go backwards to understand & acknowledge in order to go forwards. I enjoy helping clients be curious, join the dots, peel back the layers, gain awareness & to have a different experience in life.

COUPLES WORK; The work I do with clients is based around Imago Couples Therapy. Imago is the latin for ‘image’ & is the term used for the unconscious image we hold for our potential partner, the ‘unconscious image of familiar love.’ Imago was introduced by Harville Hendrix & helps couples understand why they were attracted to each other, teaches them about the stages of a relationship & helps them understand how they got in to difficulty. It provides knowledge & tools to have a different & better relationship, improved communication & an understanding of each other’s feelings & childhood wounds.

WHAT I AM NOT; If you are looking for a ‘quick 'fix’ or purely coping mechanisms, I may not be right for you & my approach might be too in-depth & I might ask you too many questions. I may also not be right for you if you are just looking to come for one session, if you are not wanting to enquire & find out ‘why’ or to consider links with past experiences & what was modelled or not modelled to you in childhood.
