How I work

I will provide you with a safe, confidential space to tell me what is troubling you and to feel heard. My approach is calm and thoughtful and I will listen with empathy and without judgement.

Together we can explore the thoughts, feelings, symptoms and behaviours which are causing you difficulties and can discover any underlying fears and motivations which may be driving them.

The relationship between client and therapist is central to our work together as it can reflect and help us to notice patterns of relating to others and to yourself which are having a detrimental impact on your life.

I do not give advice but will work alongside you to explore the roots of your difficulties, to make sense of your emotions, experiences and concerns and to gain new perspectives on them.

A greater understanding of yourself can give you the freedom, autonomy and empowerment to make the positive changes you want in your life.
