About me and my therapy practice
I am a Humanistic Integrative therapist, and I aim to put a warm and supportive client-therapist relationship firmly at the centre of the therapy. Integrative counselling recognises that different clients have different needs, therefore no single therapeutic approach is sufficient, so I will tailor my approach for each individual. My aim is that you feel secure enough to experience what it feels like to open up and be who you really are without judgement. You will work at your own pace as we explore your difficulties and reconnect you to what it is you really want. In this way you begin to make better choices and move towards restoring balance to the way you relate to yourself and to others around you.
Since our early relationships determine how we relate to the world in later life, it's likely that together we will explore the past, particularly if it affects your ability to cope or make changes in the present. You may know that something needs to change, without being able to pinpoint what it is, or you may not believe that change is possible at all. Or perhaps you know what needs to change, and you need a shorter number of sessions to become “unstuck”. Although the past is important, developing the capacity to make changes in the here and now, is what really matters.
I work with a diverse range of adults and I offer counselling for a broad range of difficulties. I have also provided counselling services for organisations and charities offering support to carers and to victims of domestic abuse. I have a background in Media and the Arts and experience of working for large organisations in these fields. I'm interested in the pressures of work that can lead to unhelpful and damaging coping strategies.
