About me

 

I am a qualified and registered practitioner – with the BACP, providing counselling and psychotherapy to individuals on either a long term or short term basis.

 

Why counselling/ therapy?

 

The human experience can sometimes be full of stress or conflicted emotions. At times we may have a sense of dissatisfaction, or a lack of fulfilment. We may find ourselves isolated and disconnected, struggling to find joy or purpose.

 

I believe that through talking therapies, we can begin to understand the processes and patterns at work in our lives. We give ourselves the opportunity to stop and better connect with ourselves and to take this learning onwards and outwards.  It is through this self-awareness that we give ourselves options; the power to change, and the capacity to accept ourselves and each other with more compassion.

 

How I work

 

I am an integrative psychotherapist. This means that I draw on a variety of different approaches and schools of thought to offer individual psychological support.

 

I believe in working collaboratively with a client, supporting them to decide what they feel they need, tailoring an individual therapeutic experience, unique for each person.

 

I work humanistically, valuing the lived experience of an individual, and their innate ability to move towards a sense of well being.

 

The therapeutic relationship is an important part of my practice, I believe that psychological healing starts here, with someone feeling heard and appreciated.
