About me and my therapy practice
I have over twelve years experience of working as an integrative therapist. I work by exploring your past,in particular your attachment style. I help you understand how this has affected your personal and professional relationships as an adult. This knowledge isn’t always available to us in our conscious mind. Some patterns, believes and messages we pick up in our early years, are hidden deep in our unconsciousness. Being in therapy is an opportunity to learn and understand these patterns and messages, as well as to understand the impact they are having in your life. Part of the work is also equipping you with tools that can help you turn this awareness and knowledge into positive and constructive actions. This can lead to a more grounded, meaningful and fulfilling existence.
We all have emotional wounds that need healing, and that healing can only start taking place once we allow ourselves to honour and feel the pain, anger and other difficult emotions we tend to avoid, either because they are overwhelming , or we simply don’t know how to deal with them. Healing also requires being vulnerable , building trust and being more kind and compassionate to ourselves. Engaging in counselling is a unique opportunity to start healing, accepting and changing, whilst being emotionally supported by your therapist. It can be an empowering and a life changing experience.
My training is in Integrative Counselling & Psychotherapy which means I use Psychodynamic and Humanistic theoretical perspectives .
