My approach is warm, relational and non-judgemental, offering a safe, confidential space to talk, explore and begin to make sense of what is troubling you, through developing a deeper understanding of yourself in relation to others and the world around you. You may want to talk about what is currently happening in your life, feelings, memories, relationships, images, dreams... really, anything that comes to mind. Together, we may find links to your past that illuminate difficulties in your present, freeing you to make more conscious choices in the future. You maybe experiencing anxiety, depression, relationship issues, abuse, anger, bereavement, trauma PTSD or work stress to name a few. Through coming to understand and know yourself better you may develop greater inner strength, enhancing your sense of wellbeing and enabling you to better face life's challenges.
I am an experienced, psychotherapist and counsellor, a registered member with BACP and accredited member of the UKCP. I chose to undertake a long, rigorous training in Transpersonal integrative psychotherapy as I believe a thorough grounding in this approach enhances work at a deeper level, aiming to reach the roots of current problems, promoting long-term personal growth. I use a range of therapeutic approaches these include: Humanistic, CBT, Psychodynamic (early life), Existential perspectives and Creative Imagination techniques (visualisation and drawings). I draw on these theories to offer each client their own unique requirements. I also work with the Police Firearms Officers Association.
You do not have to be have to be in a crisis to benefit from psychotherapy. Anyone who wants to understand themselves and their life will gain a great advantage in attending sessions.
