About me and my therapy practice
“Someone to tell it to, is one of the fundamental needs of human beings” (Miles Franklin)
I welcome all adults and young people to my practice. By encouraging a collaborative partnership between us, I wish to support you to feel better and to help you lead a fulfilling life.
There may be many reasons for you considering therapy. You may feel that you would benefit from support, and having a confidential environment where you can unburden your troubles, to speak freely about anything that comes to mind. I hope therapy with me will support you to feel calmer.
I prefer to spend 5 or so minutes on the phone, briefly discussing what motivated you to seek therapy and any scheduling preferences. I believe within that time we can begin to recognise if we’re a good fit and how we may work together.
I work as a compassionate integrative psychotherapist. I’m mindful of and individually tailor a blend of therapeutic approaches. This includes a relational approach, which focuses on your strengths and offers a non-judgmental stance to support a healthier sense of self, understand your feelings and to help gain a sense of meaning in life.
Sometimes, words are not enough and we may not be aware how our thoughts, beliefs, emotions, and behaviours are affected by our past experiences. Our memories can create self-limiting patterns in our relationships and our ways of being in the world.
Arts psychotherapy, (eg. using the language of somatic sensations, art materials or creative writing) can provide us with the potential for our unconscious to be expressed and reflected upon, while held, safely, within the arts. It may be helpful to know that there is no need for you to have had any previous arts experience or artistic skills to engage with arts psychotherapy.
