About me and my therapy practice
I am a person-centred, Integrative psychotherapist working face to face in Chorlton, Manchester and online via zoom.
My commitment in therapy is:
- to adapt to your specific needs and questions
- to treat you with compassion
-to accept you unconditionally
-to be authentic in my relationship with you
-to work to empower you in achieving your therapeutic goals
My aim as a therapist is to safely hold a space for you to explore issues which may be troubling you and to support you in your process of realising your full potential.
I work in a person-centred, integrative, inclusive and relational way.
What this means is that:
-As a Person-Centred therapist I place the needs, wishes and beliefs of you, the client, at the centre of our therapeutic work together and work with where you are at at the present time
-As an Integrative therapist I am trained in a variety of psychotherapeutic approaches which address different ‘layers’ or aspects of experience. I draw on these approaches flexibly, as appropriate to the needs of you, the client
-As an Inclusive Therapist- I strive work in an LGBT+ affirmative, accessible and intersectional way
-As a Relational therapist, rather than seeing you, the client, as an Island, I strive to understand the relationship dynamics and social contexts in your life
I offer a free, no obligation 30-minute 'taster' session. This is an opportunity for you to ask any questions and for both of us to get a sense of how we work together.
Feel free to get in touch with any questions!
Due to Covid 19 I will be working online only until there are strong indicators that face to face work will be safe. I usually work both online and face to face in South Manchester.
