Talking can be a deeply healing experience…
Therapy offers you a neutral, accepting space in which you will be truly heard and your experiences valued and validated. A space for you.
I’ll work with you to understand what you want from therapy. I have experience with a wide range of issues and work with male and female clients, both individuals, couples, and adolescents from 13yrs.
We are all unique and I welcome clients in a respectful, warm, and open minded way, providing a safe confidential space in which to work.
“Whether you think you can or you think you can’t. You are right.”
Feel more grounded with therapy and counselling…
Life is busy. With ever growing expectations and a flurry of choices at every turn balancing relationships, family, work and responsibilities can be challenging. Therapy can help you to feel more grounded and confident in the way you want to live your life. I believe each of us deserves to live freely with confidence, enabling us to live a fulfilling and purposeful life.
You may wish to work short term (typically 6-18 sessions) to talk things through and spend time reflecting and focussing on your desired outcomes. My aim will be to facilitate a space where you can gain more clarity around how you think and feel about the problem or concern you come with, and how your behaviours directly influence your life choices.
Working together short term can help you look at effective strategies and options that will help you approach your life with new awareness.
Therapy also supports the desire to explore your deeper experiences and gain insight into how the past can affect the present. Our old habits of thinking and feeling have a direct impact on how we behave, and often keeps us stuck in the same old repeated patterns. Change takes time and commitment in order to explore, identify, accept, and integrate the change you desire. It is a journey we make together.
How we’ll work together…
I work using Transactional Analysis and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), which offer an easily accessible framework that enables us to make sense of here-and-now problems and understand how our habits affect our decisions and choices. I am also influenced by Imago Relationship Therapy and use this in my work with couples and individuals.
I believe in a mind and body approach to therapy and encourage the use of mindfulness. Mindfulness is particularly useful for depression and anxiety, and for a sense of balance and wellbeing. Being mindful can help you remain grounded as you move through the therapy process.
Central to the therapeutic process is the unique relationship which develops between the client and therapist. Together we create an empathetic, energising, and reflective environment which supports you in exploring your values, offering you the space to decide what you want and which direction you want to take.
Therapy and counselling can facilitate your journey to living life with the freedom to experience joy, intimacy, spontaneity and awareness.
