About me and my therapy practice
Hello, my name is Aldine and I enjoy supporting people overcome personal and life challenges and make the most of their life.
As a therapist, I am committed to offering you a safe, confidential and non-judgmental space where you can feel cared for, free to explore your experience of life and express your thoughts and feelings about the difficulties you are facing. My aim is to understand your experience of these difficulties and support you in deepening your understanding of yourself, helping you identify unhelpful patterns of behaviour, uncovering the reasons behind them and coming to term with difficult experiences, giving you access to a freer and more fulfilling way of life.
While most of the work takes place through talking, when appropriate, I can also offer more creative ways of working (art, play, poetry, music...) as it is sometimes difficult to find words that describe our experiences.
My approach is integrative, this means that I am able to draw from different models in order to adapt to your needs. My core model is a combination of person-centered, Psychodynamic, Existentialism and CBT but is also inspired by aspects of art and play therapy, Transactional Analysis, Gestalt, Bodypsychotherapy and Jungian ideas.
