How I can help you
My role is to offer an environment built on compassion, a non-judgmental attitude and a real curiosity about what is happening for you. I have worked with all sorts of people and issues and hope that I provide a really holding, safe space where you can let go of 'stuff' and express yourself honestly and freely. These are the conditions needed to support you to discover meaningful insight about yourself, make psychological shifts and, hopefully, positive change.
What to expect
Sessions last for 50 minutes and are usually held weekly. Our first session will begin the process of assessment, where we will both get to know each other a little in order to decide if we can work together. Some people find that just a few sessions are all they need, while other people value therapeutic support over a sustained period of time. We will regularly review progress as we go along.
The humanist approach asserts that everyone has the potential for growth given the right conditions. I believe the individual is the only true expert on his or herself and that we all have the inner resources and answers within us to lead happy and fulfilling lives. However, at times it can be hard to hear this inner wisdom and guidance through the noise of modern life, anxiety and at times deep emotional pain.
My approach draws on my training in Transactional Analysis, person-centred, Gestalt and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. Essentially therapy is co-created by both of us and is a unique journey in this sense.
