How therapy can help?
At certain times in our lives most of us find we become stuck or unhappy. These feelings can arise from repeating the same mistakes or patterns. Sometimes a bereavement can result in overwhelming feelings of grief or loss. We can begin to experience symptoms of anxiety or depression. We can feel trapped at work or in our personal relationships. We can struggle with issues around self-esteem or low confidence. Coming to terms with and accepting our true identities in terms of gender and sexuality can be extremely challenging. Trauma from our past which we have not processed can re-emerge. Sometimes things just don’t feel right and we are not sure why. Any of these issues can bring a person to therapy and when working with a therapist, a client is able to gain a better understanding of themselves and find new ways of through problems and challenges.
I am a Psychotherapist and qualified member of the BACP. I work in an intergrative way, primarily as a humanistic therapist. I believe the relationship between myself and my clients is fundamental and I strive to offer an empathic and safe environment, as we work together and collaborate to gain insight and understanding. I am trained to work with a variety of therapeutic approaches, including Psychodynamic, Solution Focussed and Existentialist Therapies. I am able to work with you and tailor therapy to your needs as we get to know one another. I recognise that one size does not fit all and I can offer a way of working which would be most helpful for you.
