About me and my therapy practice

Life is complex and sometimes we feel we are losing our way.  In therapy I can help you take a step back and understand yourself and what is going on.  You can work on healing your past and implementing changes, allowing you to reorient your life.            

Whatever your reason for wanting therapy, finding a therapist that is the right fit for you is key. Research has shown that a good relationship between therapist and client is the basis of successful therapy. As a Relational Integrative Therapist, I will take time to get to know you, what is important to you and what you want to get out of therapy; creating a confidential and safe space where you can share openly the things that are troubling you.

My Training and Qualification

I have a Post Graduate Diploma in Integrative Counselling which is based on relational models of integration.  Integration in counselling is when a therapist weaves together various counselling modalities, theories and ways of working with clients into a coherent model, to work with clients in the way best suited to them. It is relational because the overall integrative model is based firmly on the relationship build between client and therapist. 

Practice description

My Approach

I take a holistic approach to therapy.  Our behaviours, our thoughts, our emotions and our physical bodies are all connected. We can take time in the therapy room to explore those connections and help you to understand yourself better. We can also integrate into these explorations any aspects of spirituality or faith that are important to you.

Coming to an understanding of why you behave, think, and feel the way you do, can help you to bring about the changes you desire in your life; as well as enabling you to acknowledge, express and process the pain and trauma that you have experienced.  

Therapy can be viewed as a journey that you take.  The journey is not always a straight path and can have twists and turns along the way. I see it as a joint endeavour, where you and I journey together. I will be accompanying you, until you feel ready to continue the journey on your own.

Bereavement Work

I have a personal interest in bereavement work and am involved with two bereavement charities and have completed Bereavement Specific Training with Cruse (Awareness in Bereavement Care Course).
