The key approach that I employ in my therapeutic work is Psychosynthesis, however, as an integrative therapist, I incorporate elements from various modalities that I have found useful including Trauma-Informed Stabilisation Treatment (TIST), Relational Life Therapy (RLT), and Internal Family Systems (IFS). My work is client-centred, trauma-informed, compassion-based and draws on the findings of current neuroscience research.
If you’re searching for a therapist then it’s likely you are experiencing some kind of distress, discomfort or dissatisfaction. This could be for many different reasons, i.e. relationships, family matters, bereavement, loss, ill health, work worries. Equally, you may have no idea of a cause but just a feeling of emptiness or lack of purpose. Therapy is not only helpful for big traumatic life events. It can also help for times when you are at a crossroads or are feeling “stuck”.
Everyone goes through challenging situations, and while you may have successfully navigated other difficult periods in your life, sometimes you need a little extra support. Through therapy, you are given a safe and confidential place to talk over your difficulties with someone who is trained to help you and committed to supporting you.
Please feel free to contact me and we can have an initial conversation about whether therapy may be appropriate for you. This initial conversation can be face to face or via email or telephone. Whatever makes you feel most comfortable and makes that initial step feel less daunting.
Whatever you bring, a gentle exploration of the issues usually reveals a deeper picture that helps you to make sense of what is happening.
I really look forward to hearing from you.
I am qualified Psychotherapeutic Counsellor with an MA in Psychosynthesis Psychology awarded by The Institute of Psychosynthesis in affiliation with Middlesex University.
My interest in therapy was sparked many years ago when I experienced how talking to someone who really listened in a space that felt safe and non-judgemental could actually help me! I noticed how this process helped me to see things in a different way and as a result, I changed the things that were no longer helpful. This inspired me to undertake a therapy training myself as I found therapy invaluable and feel passionate about the benefits of it.
Through counselling and psychotherapy, I seek to value, respect and listen to you in confidence and without judgement.
