About me and my therapy practice

At the heart of the therapy and coaching I offer is Carl Roger’s Person Centred Therapeutic way of being. I will listen to you and reflect back what seem to be the most important words, feelings and images, you will be encouraged to help me ‘reflect back’ more exactly your experience. Together we will work to understand what it is at the edge of your experience which is connected to your difficulties. We will work together to uncover what lies just out of sight and hold it at the right distance so all of it is less overwhelming. In Person Centred Therapy it is understood that the client is the expert, no-one knows you as well as you know yourself, my role is that of a guide, helper, assistant, a midwife to your process. The relationship we build is the healing ingredient, as often in the past relationships have been the source of difficulties. In the therapeutic relationship we understand each other as completely as possible, just as we seek to understand the parts of ourselves and how our experiences fit together. As a Focusing Oriented Therapist I use my own ‘felt sense’ to help you to use yours to reflect not only on your feelings but how your body experiences your feelings; maybe your anxiety is accompanied by a twist in your stomach, your depression with a heaviness around the shoulders, grief with a pain in the heart, your lack of ease with a wobbly feeling in the background. I understand trauma as a Post Traumatic Stress Response and understand our triggers and in doing so uncover new patterns of behaviour. Knowing that our response of anxiety, withdrawal, depression, addiction and so on are the result of our best efforts to help ourselves, we can offer ourselves compassion. This transforms the way we relate to the ongoing repercussions of traumatic experiences and historical legacy of systemic trauma, without ever excusing them.
