About me and my therapy practiceI have a Doctorate in Counselling and Psychotherapy and over thirty years' experience of helping people face personal difficulties.
I use an approach that is informed by existential philosophy and is concerned with making sense of the world in the face of whatever difficulties we may be experiencing. It is not a medical model that is concerned with diagnosis and categorisation, but is about making sense of everyday life experience. It is about encouraging you to find your own answers according to your values and beliefs.
At some time in our lives we will experience difficult emotions and psychological pain. Therapy is a collaborative process and provides an opportunity to reflect on how you are living and choices you are making.
I see my clients as individuals, complex and multidimensional within the context of their lives and I do not attempt to create simplistic solutions to labels that might have been placed upon them. I believe our current relationships and the way we are with others are influenced by past events and how we understood them at the time.
I will provide a safe, confidential space to explore the things you are finding difficult to cope with and I work in an open, warm and non-judgmental way. I will be with you in partnership discussing aspects of your life that you wish to clarify or change and this usually brings a feeling of relief. My aim is to help you face up to and make sense of your existence.
