About me and my therapy practice
A very warm welcome. You may be thinking about seeking some professional support with life's challenges, and I very much hope to be able to help you.
As your humanistic and integrative therapist I will work to create a safe, supportive space for you to explore yourself and your potential, ultimately working towards developing your own personal growth - mentally, emotionally and spiritually - tailoring therapy to you and not you to the therapy.
I know life can be chaotic and we can feel out of control, and under pressure to hold everything together for a variety of reasons. Leading lives where we are trying to be so many things at once, and trying to perfect them all, can become overwhelming. We can feel isolated and lonely believing no-one understands us when all we really crave is a space to be heard, and really listened to. I can provide that space and be with you every step of the way as you explore your challenges. We can work together to tap into the tools you naturally have available to manage and cope with life and situations that arise.
Practice descriptionI do this by offering a client-centred approach based on respect, empathy and honesty. I will support you in exploring your reasons for seeking therapy, within a non-judgemental environment. By creating a safe, open and genuine relationship with you, we can together find ways to deal with the difficulties you are experiencing. In doing so this can help you develop the tools to find clarity and become more confident, empowered and self-fulfilled when dealing with life's challenges.
My first session
Our first session will inevitably involve some information gathering as we explore your history, and develop an understanding of the reasons bringing you to therapy. It is a mutual assessment for us both to decide if we are able to work together, and for me to understand your needs and the best way I can support you. There will also be some paperwork to complete as we discuss our therapeutic contract with each other. I follow strict codes of practice regarding client confidentiality, as established by the BACP guidelines.
