About me and my therapy practice
I work online and face to face helping people to improve the relationship with themselves and those around them.
So, if you have found me here, then you may be experiencing some of the following things:
- You are overwhelmed with anxiety, rage, anger or depression
- Your relationships are strained or breaking down
- You have lost someone
- You cannot voice what you need
- You cannot find your way
- You have an inner voice that is really mean
So you may need some help to understand these things, to begin to make sense of your thoughts, feelings and behaviours, other people and even the world. We have relationships to everything, including ourselves, and relationships are vital to our mental and emotional wellbeing. We form relationships (attachments) from birth and this is necessary for both survival and development. But sometimes our attachments are less than secure and as we go through life we may be confused as to why:
- Relationships keep ending the same way
- Why we keep feeling the same old feelings
- Why we engage in behaviours that are harmful
- Why we keep telling ourselves that we are not good enough or believe everything is our fault
- Why we feel that we cannot get close to people
Well, this is where I can help because I believe if we are fully connected to ourselves and who we are then everything else begins to fall into place. Relationships become more intimate, fulfilling and stronger. We have the courage to ditch relationships that are not good for us. Emotions become more manageable, harmful behaviours lessen, we feel lighter, happier and able to make good decisions.
Sometimes it may be very difficult to talk to family and friends about all of this because we fear judgement or that we are a burden, or maybe we just don't want to. So please check out my website because you can be your fully autonomous, authentic self instead of the adapted, constricted self that you always thought you had to be in order to be in a relationship or to survive in the world…
My core training is to Foundation Degree Level and is considered integrative, which means I have studied a variety of counselling theories, psychology and science based modules.
I have worked in bereavement, with people who feel lost, with relationship difficulties, anxiety, depression, anger and rage. I work with counselling students
Continued professional development (CPD) is something that I am passionate about and I take up various training courses throughout the year, which either adds to or builds on my existing knowledge. Other courses Internal Family Systems (Informed), bereavement training, Transactional Analysis, Post Graduate Course in Compassionate Inquiry Approach (Gabor Mate). I am Trauma trained and hold a Level 5 qualification in Attachment Based Psychotherapy.
My first session
Our first session will be slightly longer than subsequent sessions to allow for information that I will need to take from you and for you to ask any questions about me or the way I practice. After this there will be plenty of time for us to begin talking about what has brought you to counselling.
It is normal to feel anxious about beginning counselling, however, clients report that they quickly feel at ease with me and the way that I work, valuing the open dialogue, the compassion and knowledge.
