Learn to see yourself differently
There are times in our lives when we could all benefit from some support, in order to meet life’s challenges and find alternative ways of seeing things, particularly during moments of change and uncertainty.
Psychotherapy & counselling can be both a practical and creative process that explores feelings, thoughts and behavioural patterns, in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment. Its main aim is to improve people’s sense of well-being, alleviate distress, resolve concerns, increase capacity to problem-solve, build resilience and make decisions.
Facing such issues can sometimes be difficult even painful at times, which is why most of us tend to ignore them. Avoidance, however, can cause greater distress and can even stop us growing and living fulfilled lives.
I aim to combine my inspiration and creativity with knowledge and pragmatism to support individuals live more fulfilling and purposeful lives. I adopt an integrative approach to psychotherapy and counselling due to the uniqueness of each person and their presenting issues and concerns. I integrate a range of theories and approaches; from psychodynamic, humanistic, body-based, self-psychology, cognitive behavioural methods and Mindfulness practice. However, at the heart of how I work is the principle of how we relate to one another – the relationship between therapist and client is key. Research suggests that the most important element in reaching resolution in therapy, regardless of theoretical approach, is the quality of the relationship.
I work with both adults and young people in 1:1 and group settings, and offer both long and short-term therapy, depending on the presenting issues.
