I offer a non-judgemental, confidential space where, together, we can explore the challenges you face. As your therapist, my aim is to offer you the relationship and support you need to reflect on and be more able to cope with difficult life events. I believe therapy includes developing a deeper understanding of ourselves in the context of past and present experiences, environment and choices. I also believe we all have an innate ability to heal and that therapy can help to remove obstacles in our path – helping us shift from a life where we merely survive to one in which we develop an intention to thrive, despite life’s challenges.
The relationship between us, as therapist and client, is hugely important. As an Integrative psychotherapist, I draw on a wide range of theories, including recent developments in neurobiology, which help us understand the relationship between mind, body and our sense of safety and emotional wellbeing. Many clients benefit from developing their ability to notice what is going on in their body and being curious about this. If you feel comfortable, as well as talking, our sessions might include breathing practices, drawing and other creative ways of working that you are willing to experiment with. However, this will always be your choice.
I offer both online and face to face sessions. Face to face sessions take place in my welcoming and comfortable therapy room at home, with driveway parking.
