About me and my therapy practice
You may be scrolling through profiles of counsellors and psychotherapists looking for a good match, and wondering what you are looking for?... You will have your reasons for looking for a therapist now. Perhaps someone else has suggested you might want to try it. Whatever your intention now, it’s to be taken seriously, do remember it.
I will work with you to help you face the things that need to be faced, to enable you to ask meaningful questions of your life, and to help you tune into your answers. With kindness, a steady attitude, and an open manner, we will work to clarify what troubles you and unearth what your options may be. Even the most entrenched problems can be loosened to release enough space and movement that new vitality and perspective is possible. There are times in life when we become disorientated, grieving, lost, disillusioned - it is at these times we may come to re-evaluate our lives; to discover a reorientation and new understanding of our capacities and what living a good life means to us.
