Time to focus on you
Why is it, in our modern times with an emphasis on immediate and constant communication, we seem to experience less genuine connection with each other? Are we forgetting or perhaps even avoiding to connect with what matters the most, our own authentic self?
Instant connectedness has come to replace reflectiveness and introspection, leading to a loss of intimacy with self and others. Therapy addresses the essential need to stop, check in with ourselves, identify and process our thoughts and feelings. It promotes connection with our own vitality.
I am a qualified integrative psychotherapist and counsellor, practicing in Milton Keynes and Olney. I have a flexible, sensitive, relational approach. Over the course of our sessions, I will work very much in collaboration with you to understand what’s troubling you and formulate a treatment plan.
I focus on your presenting difficulties in the context of your early relationships and environment, helping you to create links between past and present to bring about a deeper and more cohesive understanding of yourself.
I support and encourage ways of contacting your own inner experience, the embodied felt sense of what it means to be you whilst building a trusting therapeutic relationship. Engaging in therapy can help you reconnect with a sense of aliveness, contentment and find more creative ways of participating in the world.
The core of my practice rests in relational psychoanalytic thought and humanistic-existential philosophy with its emphasis on the joy, pain and complexity of simply being human.
I offer both short-term work (up to 12 sessions) with specifically agreed goals as well as long-term (open-ended) for those who would like an in-depth exploration of their problems and a more stable change in their sense of self.
