About me and my therapy practice
I provide a safe and confidential space within which to explore issues and expand awareness. In place of judgement, I offer a supportive environment in which to challenge pre-existing, debilitating thought-patterns and enable new choices and changes to be made. Together, we will examine what obstacles may be standing in the way of you fulfilling your potential and explore ways of finding a more fulfilling and authentic way of life.
I trained as an integrative psychotherapist, which means that I draw from several theoretical perspectives to help a client in a way that is most meaningful for them. I do not believe in a one-size-fits-all approach to therapy and instead, recognise that every client is individual in their needs.
My own theoretical integration combines psychodynamic and humanistic ways of working. The psychodynamic approach explores the way in which our past experiences are, often unconsciously, informing and shaping our present. It enables clients to identify unhelpful behavioural and emotional patterns and provide the opportunity for new choices to be made. Humanistic therapy subscribes to the belief that we are all capable of growth and positive change when given access to the right supportive conditions. This form of therapy is client-led, empathic and non-judgemental.
I also draw upon techniques from Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), usually as a way of offering practical measures for clients dealing with the acute discomfort of anxious and traumatised states.
My first session
It is best to get in touch via email, as before our first session I will recommend we schedule in an initial telephone consultation. This is free of charge and lasts around fifteen minutes. It is a chance for us to connect and think about how we might best work together.
