I work within an integrative framework as a psychotherapist, which means that I draw together a number of different therapeutic approaches and I can tailor my approach to your individual needs. My aim is to create a safe, non-judgemental and confidential space that we can work from to investigate and understand thoughts and feelings, which may initially seem difficult and overwhelming. A therapeutic journey also often involves recognising that real strength is about learning to express our vulnerability and reach out.
Trusting our own perspective, challenging our negative thoughts and taking positive action, helps to rebuild confidence and a greater sense of well being.
Coping with uncertainty and exploring the personal message in our feelings of anxiety and depression are key elements of my approach to therapy. For many people, this involves overcoming fears about what others may think of them and expectations that others may have of them, which can often dominate decision making and lead to feeling stuck, inadequate and insecure.
Personal therapy can often be an important step in developing a more resilient and authentic self that is better able to cope with life’s inevitable challenges. What we learn and how we develop through the changes that we make is a process that can continue long after the therapy has concluded.
