About me and my therapy practice
I am trained as a relational integrative therapist which brings together elements of different specific therapies. This is based on the idea that not one single style of therapy can work for everyone.
I offer you a safe, non-judgemental space to explore your concerns. Patterns of thought and behaviour that may be affecting your relationship with yourself and others may come up too. If we can spot these patterns together we can start to creatively investigate why they got there, what they are doing and how they can be adapted in order for you to live a more contented life.
The past holds clues as to how we all exist in the present. Whilst you can’t change the events of your past you can change your perspective of it and by talking about it in a way you feel comfortable can help. This can give you more understanding and resilience to tackle present challenges.
I have been working for over 15 years in creative therapeutic settings with a diverse group of people, including students. Seeing the healing benefits of people finding their own creativity and engaging with a community, as well as experiencing this myself, inspired me to train as a counsellor. Now I support people find their own creative ways to heal and make changes. Working in fast-paced, high-stress environments has also given me a specific interest in work related issues.
As well as my private practice I have previously worked for an alcohol and addiction support agency and Mind, the Mental Health Charity.
