About me and my therapy practice
I will offer you a caring, supportive, non-judgemental space where you will feel heard, accepted, respected and valued. Talking about your thoughts and feelings can bring huge relief and help you to experience a greater sense of happiness and wellbeing. My theoretical approach for Individual Counselling is integrative, the foundation of which is Person Centred. I draw on the Psychodynamic, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and The Comprehensive Resource Model approaches in order to help meet your needs. That said, recent research shows that the therapeutic relationship (the relationship between you and me) is more important than theory and this is central to my work. I have a special interest in the imprint childhood trauma can leave on adult survivors.
For Couple Counselling again my approach is integrated drawing on the work of Gottman, Dr. Sue Johnson and Harville Hendrix. I tend to lean more towards the Imago Relationship Therapy (Harville Hendrix) however my work is influenced by all of the above. Counselling is a safe place to rediscover each other and gain a greater understanding of what has happened in the relationship; whether this is whilst working on affair recovery or feeling more like “friends than lovers”. Esther Perel a Belgium psychotherapist who teaches, writes and works with adult relationships says "that we are living in a day when some couples marry 3 or 4 times and some do that with the same person". If you are suffering from the effects of one or both of you having an affair and are looking for a way forward there is hope and you could make your relationship even stronger.
