About me and my therapy practice

WHY THERAPY?

There are many different reasons why you might be thinking about starting therapy. You might be feeling out of sorts, out of sync or not quite yourself. You might need support as you move through a difficult phase or transition in your life. You may recognise the need to explore and process some parts of your past. From anxiety or depression to stress management and relationship difficulties – the list goes on. Therapy has the potential to help everyone differently. If you want to find out more about me or how I practise, then check out my website or Instagram (@lyonstherapy).


DOES IT WORK?

I wholeheartedly believe in the transformative and healing power of therapy because I’ve seen it happen with my clients, and experienced it myself. I’m of the belief that it needn’t be just for those that are experiencing hard times. From developing a greater understanding of how we function in relationships (familial, professional, or romantic), to examining and challenging an internal critical voice, we can always benefit from a little self-exploration no matter how good or bad we feel at present.

Practice description

THERAPY STYLE

The unique nature of each client’s needs is reflected in my mode of practice. I am a Relational-Integrative Psychotherapist. Relational doesn’t mean I’m solely focused on your current relationships, it defines a mode of practice that considers how we each exist in, are developed through, and can experience difficulties in our lives because of our relationships (past & present). It also examines and works with how we relate to one another in our therapy sessions.

The integrative part in my practice means that we will create a unique therapeutic approach together, drawing on different techniques and theories to fit your personality, goals and desires.

WHAT I DO

I pride myself on my ability to create a safe and judgement-free space with each of my clients. Together we can build a therapeutic relationship built on warmth, genuine care, and trust. These foundations are essential for the adventure, discoveries and challenges that can be part of the therapeutic process as we move towards growth, empowerment, or healing.

I’m a therapist who cares deeply about his work. It’s very important to me that my clients get the most out of their therapeutic experience - that they feel truly heard and supported throughout our time together.

HOW I WORK

I consider myself to be an active participant in a therapy session, meaning I am not just a silent “mhm”-er. To get the most out of our sessions I find it’s important to engage with your world and whatever has brought you to therapy at a pace with which you feel comfortable.

All my work is conducted discreetly and in the strictest confidence, the boundaries of this confidence and all the other details of how the sessions will work are discussed clearly and agreed upon prior to getting started.
