As a chartered counselling psychologist I draw on my knowledge of a wide variety of psychological theories and frameworks to help reduce distress and to enhance well-being. I have a special interest in attachment-based psychotherapy, which focuses on early relationships and their impact on current state of mind and interactions with others.
I am also an EMDR therapist (see the EMDR Association UK for further information).
I am curious about all aspects of your external and internal worlds:
- your relationships (including the one you have with yourself)
- your values, beliefs, desires and dreams
- your story so far
- your present moment
- your hoped-for future
Of great significance in my work is the quality and nature of the therapeutic relationship which develops between us – I believe this to be a key element in bringing about change. Therapy isn’t a magic bullet and I can’t make your decisions for you. However, I can listen attentively as you talk and think about what matters to you. I can hold a mirror up to you so that you can begin to know and understand yourself more deeply and fully.
Importantly, I will encourage you to see your worth and your capabilities and to celebrate what is going well for you, as well as acknowledging and confronting the more painful aspects of your experiences. At the heart of my practice is a commitment to providing a safe, confidential, collaborative and accepting space where I hope you can feel able to explore your difficulties and increase your self-understanding and your understanding of others.
