As someone who is empathic but not emotionally involved in your issues, I can provide an objective listening ear and a safe, non-judgmental, confidential space. I don't advise you but I support your decision-making process. If you're feeling powerless and struggling to make simple decisions, I can help you to regain a sense of personal power.
Family and friends may help but because we are emotionally involved with them, we often edit what we share. We might want to protect them from our distress or we might perceive them as the source of that distress. Unless your friends and family are trained listeners, they may interrupt with similar problems of their own or offer advice influenced by their experience, not yours.
I work intuitively, guided by what you say and tuning into what you don’t say but might express non-verbally. I work creatively and may use guided visualisation, meditation, drawing and dreams to help you uncover what motivates you. I am also trained in EMDR, an evidence-based approach to working with trauma.
If you're uncertain whether psychotherapy is right for you, please call for a no obligation chat so I can answer your questions and address any concerns.
