About me and my therapy practice
I recognise how seeking psychotherapy and counselling can feel daunting. I offer you a place of support to express yourself, and to explore where you are, what works for you and what needs to change. I intend to meet you as you are in the moment, with empathy and without judgement and look to understand what it like to live your life.
I believe that growing awareness enables greater understanding and an opportunity for a different experience. I seek to bring awareness to all aspects of your experience and so as well as cognitive thought and emotional feeling, I look at somatic experiencing to expand awareness further and allow for understanding and the possibility for change to happen in the present.
Relationships mirror back to you all the things that you cannot see on your own, so in developing a strong therapeutic relationship at your pace we can establish safety to explore what brought you to therapy.
I offer both long-term depth psychotherapy and shorter-term counselling for adults on a weekly basis. I offer face to face appointments in Blakedown Worcs DY10, and Stourbridge DY8.
I offer short term focused and longer term in depth psychotherapy and counselling for a wide range of issues. These include generalised anxiety, depression, social anxiety, feeling sad, panic attacks, trauma, difficulties with relationship, stress, bereavement, childhood trauma and abuse, addiction, lack of confidence, poor self-esteem, and loss of direction.
My approach, is relational-developmental acknowledging the important role of personal relationships both in early development and in the present on how we see ourselves and experience life. We focus on establishing a therapeutic relationship to explore whatever it is that you might be struggling with, and the unique history and set of circumstances which you bring, and how this is affecting you in the present. Through this growing awareness we can better understand the difficulties and find new ways of coping and dealing with them. I integrate a number of approaches such as attachment theory, object relations, TA, Gestalt, and psychodynamic, within a relational-developmental context.
I am committed to working within a confidential, supportive and non-judgemental environment which facilitates a respectful and creative therapeutic relationship supporting growth and change.
