About me and my therapy practice

Being an Integrative Psychotherapist and Counsellor, I use a range of different therapies.

I draw upon the Person-Centred approach, Cognitive behavioural Therapy (CBT), Psychodynamic approach and Dialectal Behavioural Therapy (DBT) to enable clients to develop their self-awareness whilst working collaboratively.

Each client is unique and therefore flexibility is key in ensuring each client’s individual needs are met. By adjusting my therapeutic approach using different types of therapies I am able to match what each client needs. One size does not fit all. 

Practice description

During the session, you will be encouraged to express your thoughts and feelings. Although this can initially be daunting, the therapeutic space is a secure, containing space which can help you to fully benefit from the process and explore a range of issues in an open and honest manner.

Therapy can provide support during difficult or overwhelming challenges in life. Therapy can offer guidance in a specific relationship, life or work issue. The focus of therapy is to develop awareness and insight, enhance the skills that we use to cope with demanding and difficult challenges and work towards acceptance of issues from the past that may still be contributed to painful feelings.   

My first session

During our first session, you will have the opportunity to learn more about my therapeutic approach. The first session is often considered an assessment session which allows me to understand what brought you to therapy in a safe, non-judgemental and confidential space. together we will be able to collaboratively create a tailored therapeutic plan for you which focuses on what brought you to therapy and what you would like to gain from the sessions.
