I am an Integrative Psychotherapist which means that I tailor my theoretical knowledge, clinical experience and therapeutic skills to find a collaborative way of working with you so that we can get to the heart of the issue(s) that bring you to therapy; alleviate your distress and find solutions to your problems.
We all go through periods in our life when life seems to lose its meaning, we may feel out of sync with ourselves and others. We can suffer from anxiety, depression, bereavement, low self-esteem, relationship breakdown or separation anxiety. You may feel lonely, anxious, depressed and not know why or where these feelings come from. You may be worried about your relationships, your sense of identity, or your family life. Sometimes memories from the past, painful events in the present, and worries about the future, can culminate to make it difficult to cope with everyday life and leave you feeling overwhelmed.
Whether you are experiencing difficulties as described above or you simply want to learn to relate more easily to people or wish to live life more fully; talking about it in therapy can help.
I believe that we are most fulfilled when in an accepting relationship with ourselves and others. Whatever it is that brings you to therapy I will offer you a warm, safe, empathetic, non-judgemental, confidential space to explore, identify and resolve your issues. I will support you in your journey by enabling you to feel less overwhelmed by your problems; gain a deeper understanding of yourself, your relationships and your life so that you can feel more empowered to make positive, life enhancing changes.
I will work collaboratively with you to help you gain insights and direction which will help you for the future. I recognise the experience of each individual I work with and I will treat you with respect and integrity without making assumptions based on class, disability, gender, race or sexual orientation.
My approach is Integrative and relational. I offer one to one counselling, both long and short term depending on your needs. I have experience of and enjoy working with a diverse range of people with a very wide variety of issues.
