Life brings many challenges, and it is understandable that at times we might look for support in facing them. Psychotherapy provides a safe space and therapeutic guidance to help you on your journey of self-discovery; to enable you to examine your life and make new, meaningful choices within it.
Psychotherapy offers a chance to reflect on the difficulties or problems you are experiencing in a safe and confidential environment, with a professional psychotherapist. Together we can explore your situation in a way that leads to fresh perspectives - and perhaps a new understanding of yourself. Counselling isn’t about giving you solutions or advice, but empowering you to make your own choices and changes.
My style of working is called Integrative. This involves bringing together many different styles of practice, to work in a way that is built around your specific needs. The work is client centered- which means my job is to accompany you on your journey - offering guidance from a psychological perspective- towards what the founder of person-centered counselling, Carl Rogers, called ‘self-actualisation’. Person-centered work is focused on empathy, a non-judgemental approach and providing guidance from a psycho-educational/ Psycho-Spiritual perspective; everyone has a built-in motivation to reach for their full potential, but sometimes need a bit of support to get there!
