About Me

By coming to personal therapy, you may be seeking to find relief and gain insight into the obstacles which might be blocking your path to health and happiness. By shedding light on blind spots and working with you to overcome inner resistance, I can help you move forward equipped with the strategies you need to thrive.

Therapy offers a safe, confidential place where you can talk about your relationships and emotions or difficult events in your life which you wish to make sense of. Or you might have unhelpful or negative thoughts and behaviours that you want to change. You don't have to be in crisis to have therapy. I uphold equal opportunities and I respect difference.

My core way of working is Humanistic, a non-directive, empathic approach that empowers and motivates individuals in the therapeutic process. This approach is based on the belief that every human being has the capacity to fulfil his or her own potential.

The past affects the present, so I integrate the Psychodynamic approach to my way of working. I aim to help individuals review emotions, thoughts, early-life experiences, and beliefs in order to gain insight into their lives and their present-day problems, which may be preventing them from moving forwards.
The therapeutic relationship is central to psychodynamic therapy, as it can demonstrate how a person interacts with their friends and loved ones.

The Transpersonal model gives attention to a person's potential for the future and aspires to a higher nature, such as compassion, altruism, intuition and creativity. Its emphasis is on finding meaning and purpose in life and the therapy process allows for that discovery.

My aim is to suffuse my Integrative approach with ways to access positive influences in order to reach full potential, whilst acknowledging that the past informs the present. The arc of therapy is a process, not an event.
