About me and my therapy practice
My objective is to facilitate you to gain a deeper understanding of the difficulties you are experiencing. In my experience and having worked with many presenting issues and different people one thing that I have observed in my practice it’s the very important need to feel connected to others but also to our own self.
We human are very complex and our emotions sometimes can be difficult and complicated to experience. Experiencing challenging and overwhelming emotions can be very difficult and the struggle sometimes can feel unbearable.
Our early life experiences can create a narrative and belief of the world we live in and the relationship we have with others. Through a safe therapeutic relationship that I offer these experiences can be explored and can allow you to gain a better understanding of yourself.
This may give you a sense of more control of the future choices you make. The most important relationship that you need to develop and nourish is the relationship with yourself. We can feel sometimes lost and stuck at various times of our lives or because some event or experience and we can lose trust in ourselves and others and our abilities and sense of agency.
We can be in relationship where our needs are not met or where we feel we are not connected or understood and communicating our feelings or experience may be very challenging or unsafe.
My own challenges made me an experienced therapist.
My experiences of challenges in my early childhood and adolescence made me the therapist I am today supporting people to better understand themselves and give them the opportunities to explore their experiences and concerns in a safe and confidential space that is also accompanied with empathy confidentiality and non-judgment.
Areas of expertise:
Generalised Anxiety Disorder
Alcohol and other Substances Abuse
My first session
What to expect from our initial meeting
In my initial meeting we will explore needs and concerns. You will also have the opportunity to ask any questions you may have. In this initial consultation we will have the chance to get each other and, by the end, we will decide if it is appropriate to work together. If we do decide to work together my suggestion is to work for 6 sessions with a session to review and to explore if it is necessary to continue. This is of course all explored in the safety of a confidential space.
Key words used in my counselling practice– Emphatic- Understanding- Supportive- Challenging, and most of all ethical and confidential. In the years I have worked with people I have learned great strategies and can offer you many different tips. You will then have the choice and opportunity to use them. I take my work seriously however in the time we work together there will be opportunity to also smile.
