About me and my therapy practice

Let's Talk...

Therapy gives you the opportunity to explore how life is for you, how you feel about it and how you react during certain situations, all with the aim of finding solutions that work for you. My aim is to provide a confidential, non-judgemental and accepting environment where I can help you explore your issues no matter what they are. Unresolved issues can cause great unhappiness and therapy can help to unlock suppressed feelings and emotions.

I believe that talking to a sensitive and skilled listener can make a real difference. I also maintain that one of the most important factors in your therapy is the relationship you establish with your counsellor. Therefore, I aim to offer you a safe space, without fear of judgement to explore emotions and issues that trouble you.

I work integratively which means that I draw from a range of therapeutic approaches but I am most influenced by psychodynamic ways of understanding distress. In other words, I will be interested to explore with you how the past may be affecting you in the present, how your original styles of attachment might influence current relationships and the defences that you may have developed to protect yourself. I will support you in connecting with your own resources,to explore problems whilst weighing up possibilities.
