About this Service
I trained as an integrative psychotherapist and bring together ideas from several schools of thought – my main influences come from Gestalt, Existential psychotherapy and psychodynamics. I also incorporate mindfulness techniques in my work.
My approach is humanistic and relational and central to this is the view that self-awareness is key to psychological health, healing and wellbeing. Recognizing that we are all unique I tailor my work in response to each individual.
I provide a supportive, focused, space and time where you’ll be listened to without judgment and encouraged to pause, reflect and look beneath the surface of your immediate experiences; to explore and discover more about yourself and to find your strengths. I’ll encourage you to look with interest and compassion (not self-criticism) into who you are and why you do what you do. This process helps you develop deeper self- understanding, emotional resilience and to become clearer about your choices and best path ahead.
I’m experienced in working with a wide range of concerns, some of which are- depression, anxiety, relationship issues, divorce, low self-esteem, lack of confidence, sexuality, family difficulties, trauma, issues from childhood, abuse, bereavement & loss, life transitions (ageing, divorce, retirement, illness, moving home), student issues.
I’m particularly skilled and experienced in working with issues related to bereavements & loss; this includes working with those who have suffered a traumatic bereavement such as a suicide, accident or death of a child.
