Therapy can help us to understand ourselves better, to change patterns of behaviour that no longer work for us and to find our own solutions to challenges we may be facing. In these ways we can take charge of our lives.
I offer psychotherapy (using the term ‘therapy’ for convenience) to adults and adolescents, working with them to increase their awareness and understanding, and to gain more choice and control over how they live their lives and form their relationships.
Therapy can provide support in times of crisis, and enable us to make the best of our lives in a world where sometimes things don’t go to plan. Feelings of confusion, sadness, anger, or being unable to feel at all, how we deal with a specific issue such as a bereavement or relationship breakdown, or simply how we find a sense of meaning and richness to life… these are some of the many reasons why we may decide to start therapy.
I am a humanistic therapist, which means I am interested in the whole person: their mind, body, feelings, life circumstances, family history and cultural background. We are all unique, and I believe that each person is the best judge of what is right for them, and I match the therapy to suit the individual. I want everyone I work with to feel safe enough to explore any issue they need to in a non-judgemental and confidential environment.
Therapy is an exciting and challenging process, and the benefits are great and often life-changing.
