About me and my therapy practice
As a specialist relationship therapist I work with individuals, couples and family groups to make sense of relationship and sexual difficulties and then to make the changes that will turn things around.
More than any technique or theory, it is the quality of the relationship between a client and therapist that's the most important factor in achieving a successful outcome and it is this relationship that I place at the heart of my practice.
Helping clients to be curious about themselves - in other words being able to reflect on themselves and their circumstances with a sense of neutrality and non-judgement in a safe and supportive environment - is the key to success.
With me, clients come to distinguish the very personal barriers that have been in the way of having the life and relationships they want and what it will take to achieve their goals. Seeing these limitations for what they are, allows real, lasting and transformative change to happen naturally and with ease.
My training and experience is extensive. With high-level academic (Masters Level - MA & MSc) and rigorous practical training as a specialist relationship therapist, and a background in general counselling, social research and personal development coaching, I draw on a range of ideas and disciplines to support each client to find a way of working that best suits them. The 'integrative' approach I use incorporates psychodynamic, systemic, existential and other therapeutic ideas, as well as life-coaching techniques and facilitated exercises in sessions when they may be useful.
I am available for face-to-face sessions in private premises in Branksome Park, Poole. I also offer a Skype service to clients and specifically to single people looking for love nationwide via my virtual practice www.belovecurious.com
