About me and my therapy practiceI offer the supportive space in which to think about the issues that may be adversely impacting on your life and why you are feeling as you do. With this increased understanding of yourself, comes the opportunity to change how you respond to life in a way that really helps you to get your needs met.
Before becoming a therapist, I had a couple of other lives, starting work as a lawyer, before moving onto a successful career in documentary television. The same curiosity about the human condition that underpinned my life in TV, is the same curiosity that led me to psychotherapy. I think that my own professional background puts me in a unique position to understand the pressures that people can experience when trying to deal with challenging personal issues while also holding their head above water in demanding work environments.
My philosophical leaning is from the Humanistic school. It's an optimistic and empowering philosophy that says we are not helpless to change things, even if we think the die has been cast. It may help you in your search for a therapist to know that, in the end, whatever the skill set or experience of the therapist, all the evidence shows that the key to change lies in the therapeutic relationship. In other words, if you don't feel comfortable with your therapist, if you don't feel like they "get you", then therapy is very unlikely to be effective, so it's important that you find the right person for you (even if it's not me).
