About me and my therapy practice

I am a relational therapist drawing from elements of the Person Centred approach and use different modalities, for example; Trauma Informed (grounding), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (changing response to emotions), Felt Sense (bodily awareness of sensations and emotions), Solution Focused Therapy, Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (creating safety) and Transactional Analysis (roles played in relationships). This means in your therapy, I provide a place to explore your individual life situations and difficulties. My approach is to work collaboratively within the realm of the your experience to provide the ability to unravel areas that are causing pain and discomfort. I offer Short –term (up to 6months) and long-term (6+ months) therapy which is negotiated with you.

Counselling is about relationships with family, friends, colleagues and yourself. I create an environment where you are able to access and harness your own resources/strengths in a non-judgemental space to work towards your individual therapeutic goals.

You may find yourself stuck in patterns of denial, escapism or obsessive thinking as a response to your emotions. This can lead you to experience psychological distress such as, anxiety, depression, stress or tension. Despite longing to change, people can remain in these distressing and confusing states for significant periods of time. Learning to interpret and be more in touch with our felt sense (emotions and feelings) and understand the root causes can offer you insight into finding ways to understand your own needs and process how these can influence your life choices.
