How I Work

I am an Integrative, Relational Counsellor and Psychotherapist.  I incorporate a number of different ways of thinking into my work, depending on what is most appropriate for each client. This can vary from person to person, and from moment to moment. 

My six-year training means that I am able to draw on many psychotherapeutic approaches including:  Psychodynamic, Relational, Person-Centred, Attachment theory, Gestalt, Body Psychotherapy, Existential and Neuroscience.  Although I do use theory as a bedrock to my practice, first and foremost my aim is to be authentic and present in the room with my clients, and to meet and explore their changing needs.

I offer a respectful and confidential space where I aim to help you build up enough trust in me to enable us to explore your difficulties or concerns together, without shame or judgment. My role is to help you gain a clearer understanding of yourself and your relationship with others, aiming for a happier, healthier, more meaningful, and fulfilling life. 

Sessions take place at the same time each week. This is important as it provides a sense of continuity and a safe space to explore and contain your process. I am happy to see you for as long or short a time as we feel is helpful; we can work this out together.  I have found that more than one session per week can bring about change more quickly.
