About me and my therapy practice
I am a humanistic integrative counsellor with specialist training in bereavement and loss of meaning. I will support you in looking at what might be holding you up in fulfilling your purpose and becoming happy. I am particularly interested in the very meaning of life as a human being (existentialism).
I will support you in exploring how you feel about your own life and how you relate to others, by helping you to unravel key issues and events that have led to where you are today, whether that be trauma or a lack of self esteem. Sometimes we 'forget' past experiences, and with some exploration it may become clear how we have developed a mindset that is not serving us well. This can become the springboard to gaining new more helpful perspectives.
I work in a person centred way, meaning you choose what you want to focus on and I will support you in threading together the most effective way for you to progress. I integrate different therapy styles with the aim of finding what will support you in finding new meaning and advancing from your own history into a life you choose.
I am experienced in working with difference, whether it be cultural, ethnic or sexual.
If you find external resources useful, I may suggest resources such as books and podcasts, techniques and strategies, to support you in building resilience for your mental wellbeing.
I offer a safe and confidential space for you to speak about anything you want to raise, with no fear of judgement, just an openness to understanding how life is for you right now, and how you may want it to progress.
My first session
Our first session will enable you to share how you are feeling, what is troubling you, and what you hope to gain from counselling. It will give you the opportunity to see if you would like to work with me.
With the current covid restrictions I can only see you online, but would hope eventually to meet in person, or a mix of the two.
