As an integrative psychotherapist I am here to go on a journey of self-discovery with you with any difficulties that may arise on the journey. Whether you’re seeking a simple improvement or healing from deep wounds, within yourself and/or with others, I can help. I understand that at times your family/friends may be part of the problem, this is where I come into your situation with fresh eyes, an open heart, and much experience and strength to help you regain your sense of who you are. Sometimes people find it difficult or uncomfortable to put their feelings into words, make sense of what they are going through and need help & support from someone outside of their personal life. This is where we can explore things together to create a clearer picture.
The therapeutic space is non-judgmental and a confidential relationship; where you will be free to be able to talk about whatever it is, concerning you. It is a safe and secure space for you to be open and authentic that you may have felt you have never been able to do so before Together we will explore your issues, re-build your self-confidence and self-worth, to enable you to take the responsibility for your own choices and make positive changes within your life.
There many areas that can be explored and can be from current to even past issues i.e. bereavement, anger, depression, relationship issues and many more. A therapeutic relationship can last from weeks to even years depending on when we feel we have accomplished what you came for – there is no time limit. I believe a genuine therapeutic relationship is needed between the client in order for growth to occur. Therapy is tailored to your needs alone.
I offer individual counselling on a open ended arrangement. This can be either short- or long-term counselling.
I provide the opportunity and confidential space for you to explore your thoughts, feelings and behaviour to identify core issues which may be causing you stress in life. No issue is small, if it matters to you then it matters to me – a space for you to say whatever you feel you want to, a space to offload, a space to think, a space for you to just be you. I believe everyone is unique therefore I cater to each and everyone one of you on your individual needs. We work at your pace emphasising my belief in you that you have the ability to find your own solutions and direction with myself as a form of guidance.
During your first visit, we will look at what has brought you to counselling, what you are hoping to achieve and whether you feel my way of working will suit your needs and then agree on the best way of moving forward together. This initial meeting is very important, so you can discuss any concerns and what you would like from counselling. So call, and we can talk about what’s going on for you and whether I might be a good fit for helping you at this point in your journey.
I also offer phone and video call sessions if you would prefer.
