About me and my therapy practice
I am a qualified Counsellor and Psychotherapist, using Transactional Analysis (TA). I provide a confidential, comfortable environment, offering face-to-face counselling and psychotherapeutic support to individuals and to couples.
My focus is upon helping clients to gain personal insight and understanding of their difficulties, working with them in how to move forward, and facilitating their growth, change and transformation.
I have worked with a wide range of client concerns, including: depression/feeling low, bereavment and loss, low self-esteem, stress and anxiety, work-related issues, anger, self-harm, suicidal thoughts and feelings, sexuality-related issues, and relationship problems, especially around communication difficulties.
My particular interests are in helping people who have suffered trauma, having worked with men and women from a range of backgrounds,who have undergone mental, physical, and sexual abuse, and working with couples - around communication and relationship issues.
I use a Relational Approach, using the unique therapeutic relationship between me and each client, to help identify what is working well, and and what patterns of thinking,feeling and behaviour are perhaps casuing pain and distress, and need changing. Our therapeutic relationship is also the means by which this change can be facilitated.
I find that TA offers a valuable 'psychological toolkit' with which to help clients better understand their own thinking, feeling and behavour, and that of others. It also provides models and ways of how to start bringing about some form of personal change for themselves, and/or their interactions with others.
