We've all experienced difficulty at some point, however different; I see this as a meeting point for us all and part of what makes us human. Whether what you're facing relates to the present or the past, my aim is to help you make sense of your situation and find the tools to best support you for life's inevitable ups and downs.
I offer one-to-one counselling for a wide range of issues that life can throw at us or that we face as a result of difficult events. These include:
If the issue you're facing isn't listed above or you would describe what you're feeling differently, please get in touch.
As an integrative psychotherapist, I draw on the theories that speak to me through their philosophy and practice, whilst staying focused on your needs and the relationship between us. I like to bring warmth and creativity to sessions with a feeling of collaboration; we're both here to understand what feels difficult for you and together find ways that will help you feel lighter.
We usually fear what we don't understand, so when appropriate I offer an "educational" element to sessions through articles and exercises. Understanding why we feel a certain way, learning about what affects our feelings (positively and negatively) and how we can influence the outcome, can make us feel more empowered and active in the changes we aim to create. In other words, you can discover new ways of helping yourself but without having to go it alone..
I believe change comes from a compassion for what was, updating beliefs for what is, and creating a way of being for what can be. Whatever your situation, together we will tailor the therapy to your needs, rather than your needs to the therapy.
