About me and my therapy practice

Working integratively means I draw upon different forms of therapy, including Humanistic, Existential and Psychodynamic; tailoring the work to the individual, adapting each form appropriately for the situation. This is all underpinned by a wholehearted, compassionate approach.

I provide a safe, confidential, and non-judgmental space to explore what may be contributing to your current difficulties, offering an environment for you to express anger or need without the risk of retribution. With frequent contact with this empathetic relationship, we can start to build a model for safe, healthy relationships. 

I offer short-term and long-term therapy, and if we agree to work together, we can decide the best way forward for you.

 

Practice description

Counselling can relieve mental or emotional distress by helping us recognise inner conflicts and issues of which we are unaware. When faced with difficulty, children instinctively form psychological defences that help them adapt to their environment and reduce anxiety. In adulthood, the adaptions that were once effective in avoiding pain can negatively impact our relationships in the here and now.

Part of the therapeutic process is bringing unconscious feelings into awareness so we can understand ourselves and our relationship with the world around us, making us better equipped to face life’s challenges and gain emotional resilience and maturity.

My first session

Our first session is a chance for me to get to know you and to understand your needs and expectations of therapy, I use an assessment form to assist with this.

I will set some time aside for us to discuss our agreement and answer any queries that you may have. I will ask you to sign the agreement to show that you understand its contents. 

I offer both short-term and long-term therapy, and if we agree to work together, we can decide the best way forward for you.
