About me and my therapy practice
I am an integrative counselling psychotherapist and a highly regarded health care professional who believes that the inner conflict, within a person, is due to their confrontation with the givens of their existence and their relationship with life. Integrative therapists hold the view that there is no single approach that can treat individual clients in ALL situations. My grounded therapy style is relational with a strong interest in existential principles. As such, I believe that we are motivated, as human beings, to live purposefully and meaningfully, and that we find meaning in life as a result of responding humanely to life's challenges. Additionally, I believe:
- Life has meaning under all circumstances, even the most challenging and miserable ones.
- Our main motivation for living is our will to find meaning in our life.
- We have freedom to find meaning in what we do, and what we experience, or at least in the stance we take.
- Sometimes we need guided support to address these concepts and understand our distress and the threat to our meaning-in-life.
My style focuses on attachment and the family system that we all exist within and informs our adult-adult relationships. My approach lends itself well to working creatively with all aspects of human experience - whatever the therapeutic needs or problem(s) being faced by the person, regardless of their age or stage of life.
My 'relational' style places great emphasis on the relationship between client and therapist and is invested in the need for therapeutic intimacy and 'engaging real' between the two people (therapist as well as client). My belief is that this will ultimately produce the most effective and enduring outcome for you - the client.
