"Our wounds are often the openings into the best and most beautiful parts of us"
How I work
My way or working involves being guided by you, helping you to voice your feelings and experiences, paying attention to what may be helpful for you. Whilst sitting with you, I draw upon these orientations, humanistic, psychodynamic, CBT, and the transpersonal; and use a range of creative approaches in amongst mostly talking, such as mindfulness/meditations, visualisations, drawing, and dream and body work.
My approach involves offering you a different perspective, helping you to explore what is going on for you and why, and how the past may be impacting your present. And helping you to heal from those past experiences that can hold you back. You will also gain a better understanding of what you want from your life, be able to trust yourself and your decisions and discover your hidden qualities. I will also offer you tools and techniques in how to manage yourself in a balanced way, going forward.
I have experience in the following areas:
Lack of meaning/purpose in life
Grief and loss
Childhood trauma -including, neglect, sexual, emotional and physical abuse
Addictions - including sex and love, porn, work, thought patterns and substances
Relationship issues - including difficult family and work dynamics and how to voice your needs in relationships
What to expect
Therapy sessions last 50 minutes and take place on a weekly basis, at an agreed time. Our first session will involve doing an assessment together, which includes finding out more about you, your personal history, and if I am the right therapist for you. It is also an opportunity for you to ask any questions.
If we both agree that we are right for each other, we will then work together for 8 initial sessions to explore your goals and aims. After the 8 initial sessions, we can then re-assess if our therapeutic relationship is to continue. The number of sessions depend on what you would like to work on, which we can review together, on an ongoing basis.
Online and in person sessions are available. Please contact me to book your consultation call.
