I offer counselling and psychotherapy in a relaxed and safe setting of trust and confidentiality, where you are free to talk openly and honestly about the things that are troubling you. The therapeutic space ensures that what you say will be treated non-judgementally, and with thoughtful respect, and sensitivity. In counselling I offer you the opportunity to make sense of your experiences, to reflect on your current life, and to consider your thoughts, feelings, and responses to the situations and events that are making you the person you are today. Gaining a perspective on our lives gives us an awareness and understanding of ourselves from which choices towards change can occur. Sometimes this process is painful and I will support you with this. Sometimes knowing who you are, gives you the compassion, and the freedom to accept yourself and open up a more emotionally healthy future. Integrative Psychotherapy is a talking therapy that takes account of theories of psychology, therapeutic methods, and current developmental theory. When words are difficult Art offers a means to access feelings and emotions non-verbally. I work as an art therapist with individuals when specifically requested and also with groups with special needs
Like all UKCP registered psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors I can work with a wide range of issues, but here are some areas in which I have a special interest or additional experience.
