Seeing a therapist is a positive step towards improving how you feel in life and addressing any personal changes you wish to make.
Perhaps you would like to explore issues around relationship, loss, past trauma or anxiety. The past often is hindering our expression in the present, and is the cause of some difficulties such as anxiety, depression and lack of self esteem. I will work to help you uncover and heal the root of issues as well as aim to increase your contact with your deeper self and self expression.
It takes courage to begin the journey and look within honestly and fearlessly, well done for getting to this point.
I work with you to help you address difficulties and issues you find yourself in in your life. By working in a relational and psychodynamic way we can come to understand yourself more and find the skills and resources to deal with whatever life brings to you.
I place your experience at the center of the work and use dreams, imagery, creativity and intuition to help you find a deeper connection with yourself and your way of overcoming difficulties. I aim to empower you to do what is right for you, rather than advise or tell you what to do.
I find clients who come to me are often interested in the arts and find the visual and intuitive ways of working suit their own approach to life.
I work with a wide variety of presenting issues and I am GSRD (Gender, Sexuality and Relationship Diversity) affirmative.
I have a Masters (distinction) in psychotherapeutic counselling. My dissertation explored how integrative therapists use their own imagery to deepen the therapeutic relationship and the various ways this can be used ethically and to the client’s benefit.
I work integratively, with a leaning towards a Jungian approach. I have a background in working with the inner child and using inner dialogues to promote healing – integrating aspects of TA, psychosynthesis and Gestalt. I also work with attachment based issues and spiritual and transpersonal dimensions can also be explored in the work if desired.
These approaches also provide powerful ways to help you access your inner world; your own wisdom and understanding of your experiences. From here you can make changes as you choose to.
We will work online through Vsee or Zoom, or if you prefer by telephone. Ongoing appointments are usually at the same time each week.
Contact me for an initial psychotherapy session where we can discuss your needs and get to know each other. We will discuss what I can offer you and you can decide whether you feel happy to work with me on an ongoing or time-limited basis. We can allow a few sessions for this process if required.
