About me and my therapy practice
As a humanistic psychotherapist and counsellor I believe that we are able to live fulfilled lives, where we can connect with the full spectrum of feelings, understand our thoughts and behaviours, and have healthy relationships.
Experiences that have happened to us, or sometimes to our parents, society or culture as a whole, can disrupt our ability to feel, think, be and relate. Talking about problems that we know we have or allowing space for them to emerge is one way of being able to feel alive again, finding the flow of your life rather than crashing about in our own storm or get dragged into others with a sense of being out of control.
I believe there is real value in connecting as humans, being listened to and allowed to have the space to fully feel, think and listen to our body, or to learn what your emotions, thoughts and behaviours are and how to be with them.
Working holistically means we also focus on the body and how to listen to it. This could be how to notice our instinctual reactions be that fight, flight, freeze or fawn responses to life situations. Also how social, cultural or political issues impact on you and how you can work with them.
We can work together on a weekly basis, for a 50 minute session, to unearth the core of what you are experiencing and find a way to have more flexibility in life.
We can meet in person at a lovely space in Redland or Bedminster, Bristol. Alternatively we can work online if you wish.
I believe that meeting weekly for a 50 minute session will allow us to maintain momentum on the work, keep connected and allow space between sessions for you to work on what's come up in therapy.
I work long term and time-limited, we can discuss this at your first session.
My fee is £55 per session.
My first session
In our first session I want to hear what brought you to therapy, I might ask more questions and talk more than other sessions. I will make notes in your first session but not after this. We will agree what you want to work on, if this is generally to understand your feelings, thoughts or behaviours or if you have a specific goal in mind.
