My Approach to Helping

There are many reasons that bring people to therapy. An ongoing issue or past history which is now becoming too difficult to manage. A sudden traumatic loss or incident which has affected you profoundly or perhaps overwhelming feelings which are now impacting areas of your life and relationships. Or generally feeling very stuck or lost in a cycle of negativity which you cannot find a way out of.

Whatever has brought you here, things are harder to manage in the ways that have done in the past and you want something to be different, to let go of what is causing you difficulties, and to improve and change your quality of life and relationships.

You may have a supportive network of family and friends, however, talking openly about the more difficult things may be very hard to do for fear of burdening others, or being judged or worse, being misunderstood and told just ‘get over it’. Whatever it is, you do not need to deal with your difficult feelings alone and help is available.

Psychotherapy provides a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space to process your thoughts and feelings about particular areas in your life that may be distressing or causing you problems.

I believe that each person’s lived experience is unique and by developing a shared understanding of your experiences, therapy can help you to make sense of your feelings and recognise patterns and behaviours that have built up over time. This can enable you to see your difficulties and challenges in a more manageable way.

I work in an integrative therapeutic way which means that I believe one size does not fit all. Your needs will be unique to you and I work to find suitably supportive interventions and enough appropriate challenges to help you along your path of self-discovery, healing, and change.

Sometimes words fail us and I may invite you to use the arts and metaphors to explore your dreams and experiment with imagery or imagination. These are proven to provide deeper insight and provide alternative perspectives and views, especially when it is hard to find the words for challenging feelings and material.

Perhaps you are rushed off your feet and too busy to make time for yourself, or getting out of bed seems the hardest thing to do... making time for therapy will be a very valuable investment in yourself your wellbeing and your future.

We can have sessions online from the comfort of your home or a quiet place at work where you will not be disturbed. This can be the start of small steps on a path of potentially great change. Through the process of this journey of self-discovery, we can explore the origins of your thoughts, feelings, and behaviours and find ways forward in a co-created, non-directive way to help you live a life that you want and deserve.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Important Factors for Choosing a Therapist

There are of course therapists out there with what can seem confusing letters and behind their names. My thoughts are to find someone who resonates with you as a person and who you can trust and have an honest dialogue with. You are coming to therapy because something isn't working for your and the person opposite you needs to understand how this is impacting on your life and walk with you along your journey to a path that you want to be on.
