About me and my therapy practice
I recognise that at times life can be hard and in those times it can be difficult to make positive decisions that help us to move forward. Sometimes we may hit a crisis point or just get fed up with the same ways of thinking, feeling or behaving but feel that we are unable to move forward on our own.
Working with a therapist and sharing these difficulties can give you the opportunity to discuss and explore thoughts, feelings and behaviours and find ways to change and grow. I am a strong believer in the healing nature of the therapist/client relationship and believe that the way we relate in everyday life will eventually be brought into the therapy room. This can give us the opportunity to explore your ways of relating as well as the options available to you if you wish to change.
I believe that as individuals we all have the ability to decide what is right for us - therapy is not about me telling you what to do but about us exploring together what is best for you. Everyone is unique and so it is important for me to get to know you, so we can find out what is best for you. I believe that we ourselves are responsible for our own well being and that ultimately we can decide to change should we so wish. Therapy can be challenging but also very rewarding and empowering leading to lasting change and growth.
I am also trained in EMDR therapy which is an NHS approved therapy for helping you to deal with past events (including trauma) that may be affecting your mental well bring in the present.
I provide a safe, supportive, protective and confidential setting and work with warmth, respect and compassion.
