Types of therapy I offer
- Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT)
- Family/systemic therapy
I specialise in relationships: inner relationships such as internal conflict and outer relationships including couples and family psychotherapy.
As an integrative psychotherapist I have been trained in, and have experience of offering, a range of therapies which I can tailor to your individual needs and circumstances. Therapy may involve working on a clearly defined problem area and may be time-limited. Alternatively, it may be more helpful to work in an open-ended contract in which you can explore your issues further.
In open-ended psychotherapy there is space to consider the dark aspects of our beings as much as those in the light. This can involve a process of trusting the wisdom of the psyche as revealed in symbolic and imaginal process. I value the place of imagination in the therapeutic process as it allows space for trusting images to unfold in their own rhythm rather than manipulating them. This process can allow a move away from the rational mind in order to access our own inner source of healing and wisdom and can be very useful when working with internal conflict.
My therapeutic approach draws on a range of theories including psychodynamic therapy, integrative psychosynthesis, Jungian, existential, developmental, CBT and systemic psychotherapy. I believe that therapy is not ‘a one size fits all’, and during our initial sessions we can decide together which approach may be helpful for you. I work holistically, which means taking into consideration all aspects of the person’s life. In therapy this means being mindful of not only the emotional and psychological aspects but also the physiological and the wider social world, our relationships, history, culture and spirituality.
