About me and my therapy practice
I am a BACP Senior Accredited and Registered Psychotherapist and Counsellor and a bit of "an old hat" amongst my colleagues. The 22 years working as a psychotherapist has provided me with a lot of experience but every client is different, and each deserves individual attention to help overcome their personal challenges. As much as each person comes to me for help, in turn that client enriches my understanding of the complicities life deals us which I then can pass on to others.
To me, each client is unique, has different needs and reacts in different ways to therapy. Therefore, I draw on several theoretical approaches to benefit the wellbeing of the client. During each sessions, the client has time to tell her or his story, to be listened to and to be heard. Together we work on developing strategies that give the client greater self awareness, different choices, opportunities for change and possible solutions.
Clients who request coaching (the term life-coaching is also used) are usually looking for what they wish to achieve in their life. They may be looking for help with interviews, how to work towards getting promotion, career change, job opportunities. As a coach, I provide you with skills and strategies that help you feel more confident, more assured to meet these challenges. I give you valuable feedback on your thoughts and behaviour to support you in moving forward. The focus is on positive change: stating this is where I am now, what do I want next?
