About me and my therapy practice
Life can be difficult and challenging; at times it can feel like an endless struggle. We may find ourselves repeating patterns and behaviours that prevent us from living a fulfilling and meaningful life. That feeling of not having a voice, of not being able to satisfactorily articulate our thoughts and feelings, instead they end up on a repetitive loop in our minds bringing a sense of disquiet and unhappiness. Counselling can offer the opportunity to find our voice with a sense of having been seen and heard.
Beginning to speak about the things that cause you suffering is a very personal process that can raise a lot of painful feelings. I offer a confidential, non-judgmental and professional environment where you have the freedom to explore what may be troubling you. I will take the lead from you and allow you to proceed at your own pace. I do not provide solutions but will be alongside you recognising your needs and helping you to find your own answers.
My approach is relational and integrative, which means I believe in the importance of our relationship in shaping our work together. I draw on Psychodynamic theories and thinking in that it can be useful to consider how our past experiences and relationships have shaped our present. The therapeutic relationship can provide an empathic, genuine, stable and consistent setting in which to start the process of self-exploration allowing you to grow in self-awareness and self-acceptance. It allows for the possibility of change, of being able to recognise your uniqueness and of trusting yourself to know what it is that you need.
My first session
Once you get in touch, the first step would be to arrange an initial session to discuss why counselling feels right for you at this time. It is also important for you to meet me and to discover if I am the right therapist for you. Collaboratively, we would work out the best way forward.
