Coming to therapy affords you the opportunity to explore your past as it presents itself in the here and now. I am indeed your fellow being who has experienced both pain and joy and is continuously learning how to live in an existential world.
I offer you a safe space to engage in an intimate, caring therapeutic relationship, based on trust enabling a corrective, reparative experience.
I hope you will benefit from being fully seen and heard.
My approach is based on the integrative training I have undertaken both with the Counselling and Psychotherapy Central Awarding Body and The Minster Centre. Both training institutes meet high academic standards and are validated by the main professional bodies; UKCP and BACP. I am working towards my BACP accreditation.
I have a genuine curiosity when encountering people, some part of you has prompted some questions about inner happiness. I look forward to facilitating these parts and discovering what it feels like to live in your own unique way.
I decided to train as a therapist, as a second career choice to better understand my current work with people who have hoarding behaviours and those who feel chronically disorganised.
I hope to raise awareness of how mental health is often misunderstood and guide you to gain valuable insight to create your own mental wellness.
I am aware that coming to therapy is a brave step. Having been in my own personal development for over 30 years it was one of the most profound decisions I have made which I wholeheartedly advocate.
