About me and my therapy practice
I really believe in talking therapy, and it is a huge privilege for me to listen to the people who choose to share with me.
I am trained as an integrative therapist, but in reality, my approach is tailored to who I am working with - the relationship between therapist and client is absolutely vital. There is lots of research that backs up the notion that how the client feels about their therapist, and the relationship they build between them is magic element, and the key to therapeutic change.
I have worked in private practice and agency settings, and have completed specialist training for bereavement. I have undertaken couples' training too.
I offer a warm, safe, entirely judgement free space. From personal experience as a client myself, and now as a therapist, I know this space can be useful as we try to unpick some of our more complex feelings around ourselves, our feelings and our relationships with others. Sometimes, even when we are well resourced and backed up in our lives, we can use a neutral space and time to be actively listened to.
Clients often report they have an increased sense of clarity, and focus - sometimes it feels that there is power and vindication to be had by just saying things out loud to someone who is interested, invested and actively listening to you.
