About me and my therapy practice

People come to therapy for various reasons, they may be experiencing anxiety, depression, someone may have passed or a relationship may have fallen apart, something about life could simply not feel right. For me, therapy represents an opportunity to work through difficult feelings and emotional states, to wrestle with the aspects of ourselves we don't necessarily understand or like, and to potentially come out the other side. Therapy can and does reduce symptoms, but it can also lead to so much more. It can make life feel more meaningful and help us to heal ourselves.

I use an integrative approach. This basically means that I am trained in and use two different, but similar, approaches (The Person-centred and Psychodynamic approach). In practice, I am always attempting to follow you and put myself in your shoes. The way I work puts you, as the client, at the centre of what I do. I will reflect, question, be curious about what you are sharing with me. A cliche of therapy which holds true is that it can be difficult before it gets easier. For me, it's about being along side you in that process and helping you to discover what you need and want.
