How I Work:

As an integrative psychotherapeutic counsellor I draw on theories and concepts from the three main schools of psychological thought: Humanistic, Analytic and Cognitive Behavioural (CBT).

My approach is primarily humanistic, grounded in Attachment Theory and guided by current neuroscience.

What distinguishes psychotherapeutic counselling from traditional counselling is the emphasis it places on the in-depth, inter-subjective, therapeutic relationship, jointly created by the therapist and the client. This relationship is a central factor.

Building a warm, non- judgemental, secure relationship becomes a fundamental part of the work.

The Work in Process

Within the safety of the therapeutic relationship, I focus on how my client experiences their life in the present. Every client has a unique situation and is considered as a whole. I encourage my client to explore and develop their own self awareness so it is made possible for them to begin to identify what it is that is needed in their life now. At the core of our work we will be looking at relationships in all their dimensions.

As a relational counsellor my approach is always collaborative. My work acknowledges the crucial inter-relationship of body, mind and spirit.

Talking, being heard and being understood on a deeper level can bring about profound change. Some clients prefer to just talk, while others connect more easily using other forms of creative expression. such as working with image and metaphor, expressive art, visualisation, dreams and writing.

I offer support with:

  • Unexpected life events, period of change and loss
  • Exploring, understanding and learning to manage overwhelming emotions
  • Releasing old patterns of behaviour that no longer work
  • Realising your inner potential
  • Developing more fulfilling relationships
  • Reconnecting or finding a greater sense of purpose

    "Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate. Carl G Jung"

    Additional Information:

    I have significant experience with supporting people through transitional life stages including the bridge from adolescence to adulthood, midlife and beyond.

    Our world is a troubled one and at times the demands presented to us can feel overwhelming. I offer a safe space to reflect, explore, find meaning, to enhance life and to live more consciously.

    My work often includes people who are suffering :

    The following may resonate with you:

    a loss of purpose, a feeling of being stuck, symptoms of distress such as anxiety, depression, lack of self worth and low self esteem,
    experiences from the past such as developmental trauma and neglect, emotional or physical abuse,
    relationship difficulties and attachment concerns, post traumatic stress, loss including heartbreak, betrayal, health changes, terminal illness, bereavement.
