About me and my therapy practice

Lets face it, sometimes life can get a bit much. Whether that's general day to day stresses or something more serious like a death, we're all human and to some degree we've all been there. Most of the time we can muddle through and weather the storm but sometimes we need a little extra help to understand our emotional responses or our feelings towards life or people. Sometimes it may be hard to see a way out or things are just not changing.

As an Integrative Counsellor I have been trained to select a small handful of different theoretical approaches to develop my own distinct way of working. The approaches I have chosen mirror my own personality and allow for me to work to my strengths. I believe in working with the whole person, this includes your emotions, thinking, beliefs, family, life situation etc. I will adapt the use of these methods depending on you and your needs.
