About me and my therapy practice

Hello - thank you for visiting my profile page.

I am an Integrative Counsellor experienced in working with adult clients facing a wide range of life challenges and experiences. I offer one-to-one counselling sessions.

I believe that our psychological wellbeing is ever changing as we experience and respond to different life contexts and changing relationships in family, work-life and social life. Sometimes life events stop us in our tracks. Sometimes we have a sense of something not being quite right in ourselves or feel tensions in our relationships. Sometimes we feel we’re not functioning in the world in the ways we’d like. We might feel angry, afraid, depressed, anxious, overwhelmed, or disconnected from ourselves and others. I offer counselling to support you to work through these times.

How I Work as a Counsellor

As an Integrative Counsellor I work from a relational perspective drawing on humanistic and psychodynamic therapeutic traditions. For you this means:

• Relational - I offer a safe confidential space where we can work together with the issues you bring to counselling. Forming a strong alliance allows us to work together as adults in relationship whilst supporting your developing needs.

• Humanistic - I listen with respect and empathy, attempting to understand as closely as possible your experience of being in the world. We work together with a focus on what and how you would like to be different.

• Psychodynamic - I am curious about your experiences beyond the here and now. Exploring patterns of thoughts, feelings, behaviour and sensation experienced across time and in different contexts can help us make sense of the issues you bring.

• Integrative - My in-depth training in diverse well-researched aspects of counselling psychology allows me to draw on resources and approaches well fitted to your goals for counselling.
