AM I THE RIGHT THERAPIST FOR YOU?
When we create an accepting, non-judgemental space to talk, people can tap into resources, new ideas and healing. I am experienced in supporting clients’ personal development, relationship issues, intimacy issues, life stages.
You choose if you want to see me on an open-ended basis or for an agreed time period. We can talk about your wishes in the initial meeting and look at the best option for you together. You may want to review after experiencing some sessions. We can work solution-focused using specific techniques for issues that feel stuck. Or you may want an open-ended, safe and accepting space for confidential reflection and personal development.
I have been a qualified integrative counselling psychotherapist since 2007. I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), and I am accredited on senior level.
There is not only one form of therapeutic response for any presenting issue. I am trained in several therapy approaches. Depending on your wishes and needs I can offer psychodynamic therapy to look at experiences from your childhood that feel painful or stuck. If you want to stay in the here and now, person-centred counselling places an emphasis on gaining awareness of the present context, how to work with triggers, and wether the story we tell ourself serves us.
Integrating systemic therapy can be very useful in couples therapy and whilst looking at family constallations and interactions between family members.
I am further trained in somatic experiencing (SE), compassion-focused Therapy (GFT) and eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing (EMDR), approaches often used to recover from traumatic events and to overcome presentations of PTSD that can make day-to-day life difficult.
