Psychotherapy and how I practice
Everyone will experience difficulties or distress in their lives or in their relationships at some point. You may be struggling with low self-esteem, low mood, loss of a key relationship, a transition in your life or career, or perhaps deeper-rooted issues from the past that have been triggered by a current event or situation.
I work in a warm, supportive and conversational way, with the aim of establishing a strong and trusting relationship with you. I offer a safe, non-judgemental and confidential space where we can explore your experiences, feelings and concerns together. We can look at your history, relationships and patterns of thought and behaviour, with the aim of providing you with comfort, a deeper understanding of yourself, and a sense of what options you might have for positive change in your life.
I practice as an integrative psychotherapist, drawing on psychodynamic and humanistic approaches alongside some CBT techniques. This means I am interested in exploring how your childhood experiences and attachments have affected you and your relationships with others. I focus on your self-development as a whole, encouraging you to take responsibility for your thoughts and actions, with an emphasis on empowerment to achieve your full potential.
