About me and my therapy practice
I like to think of therapy as a way of helping a person to help themselves. It is an individual experience and is likely to be different for each person.
Therapy can be useful in many ways: whether facing a painful situation or challenging phase in life, improving emotional health, recurring patterns of thought and behaviour, relationship complexities, or perhaps a need to talk to someone in a confidential and non-judgemental environment, as some examples. It may also be beneficial for an individual who would like to gain a better understanding of themselves, or for whom a sense of something amiss lingers which they may want to explore with someone.
My style of working rests against a psychodynamic background, providing the therapy a certain breadth as well as depth. I take into account a person’s position in life today, any factors that they share which may influence or affect their life, in relation to their emotional, developmental and relational characteristics both past and current, whilst not forgetting about their future.
I believe that an important feature for a useful therapy is the relationship between a person and their therapist. For this reason I would suggest an initial consultation so that we can meet each other, discuss what brings you to therapy and decide whether what I am able to offer is right for you. It may also be that a person is uncertain or curious as to whether therapy is what they need, which is something that a conversation may help to clarify.
If you would like to contact me or have any questions, please email or phone me and I will reply as soon as possible.
