What underpins my approach is a firm belief in the healing potential of the therapeutic relationship - and research shows that the relationship is the most important factor. Being truly listened to, valued and understood goes a long way towards improving wellbeing.
My initial training was 'Integrative' which means that I'm able to draw on a number of theories in order to tailor my work to your needs. We'll work together at your pace and I'll help you to connect with your inner resources to improve resilience and wellbeing.
Because we all develop relational patterns in our formative years and have a tendency to keep on repeating them, we can often get stuck when this doesn't work for us anymore. Becoming more aware of our patterns in the therapy room can be the start of improving relationships outside.
During our initial conversations we'll explore together what you'd like to achieve through counselling, so that we can set goals and review regularly. My aim is to support you, but also to offer challenge and an alternative perspective at times.
If you have any questions about the way that I work, or what to expect, please get in touch.
