About me and my therapy practice
Hi, you are on your way; you have made what is often a very difficult step, deciding to get support.
I am a couples and family therapist with over 30 years experience, using Transactional Analysis, which works well for communication difficulties amongst other things.
I feel it is essential to see and acknowledge the whole person, including any social experience that may be contributing to a particular emotional difficulty. I work in a holistic and humanistic way, using whatever model or theory suits the situation. We will usually share as much laughter as tears in our work together, both are cathartic and allow change to take place.
I am a qualified teacher and taught both Psychology and Counselling to post graduate level and so I have a deep background knowledge of psychology to draw on; but in the final analysis, research has demonstrated that it is the relationship itself that heals and that is my focus.
I am also a qualified therapeutic creative writer and teacher and use writing where talking isn't helping.
Start with a phone call or text, see how you go. As time goes by, I'm working more with people using phone and email. This has lead to several long distance clients and it is very successful.
