About me and my therapy practice

The introjects of other people and our environment can close us down so we become blocked and we cannot thrive to become our self and what the world expects us to be in order to fit. So, for me I think therapy is about helping my clients understand what is a real and a false self, helping them to understand who they are, and to understand where those introjected values are, helping them to understand those conditions of worth that have been blocking their history. And if they can get to grips with the feelings behind all of that then they can start clearing some of those blockages.

Every human being works for me pretty much the same. So, I work to help clients understand how those past emotions and memories can impact their today, understand how they can begin to deal with some of those memories, some of those emotions that are impacting their here and now, understand what belongs to them which they need to take responsibility for and understand what belongs to everyone else that they are carrying. And if they can begin to understand that what they can begin to do is give a vocabulary to their emotional experiencing that they have never been able to do before. If they can do that things begin to clear up, things begin to change.

I am absolutely convinced that if I offer a space to clients where I can genuinely be non-judgemental, empathetic and congruent then people will begin to experience something that will begin to unlock their life. Come for a free informal chat where you can assess me, not that I am going to assess you and hear how I work and if that fits you, then make an appointment for a proper session.
