I think we all have far more emotional and psychological resources than we imagine, and that the experience of feeling listened to and understood helps us tap into and realise more of those inner strengths, enabling us to move forward in our lives.
As an integrative psychotherapist I draw on ideas and methods from different schools of thought, in particular from existential psychotherapy, gestalt, psychodynamics and mindfulness.
My approach is relational and flexible and I offer a supportive and open space where you’ll be listened to, taken seriously, encouraged to pause and reflect more deeply on your life experiences and discover your own resources. At the heart of my approach is the belief that we all have the capacity, creativity and inner resources to find our own solutions and that self-awareness is key to this and to finding balance, emotional resilience and well being.
I’ve worked with people who bring a wide range of concerns to therapy. I’m also a trained bereavement counsellor with over 5 years experience in an NHS Hospice, this includes working with people suffering a traumatic bereavement such as a suicide, sudden death, death of a child.
