As a Humanistic therapist I believe that when we have the support we require, we heal, grow and resolve many of our problems. We can improve our relationship with ourself and with others and our life becomes more satisfying and fulfilling.
People often come to counselling and psychotherapy to make changes, sometimes to manage times of transitions or loss or for greater self-understanding and awareness. Here you have the opportunity to be heard in a safe, confidential environment and to come to understand and appreciate yourself and your situation fully. You can share deep concerns and receive support in meeting the challenges you face.
The success of counselling and psychotherapy depends on the quality of the relationship between client and therapist. By being warm, receptive, open and non-judgemental, my aim is to provide a supportive environment in which you are able to share your experience. This allows you to clarify your feelings, deepen your self-understanding and to explore different responses to yourself and others.
In counselling you can learn to :
- Manage stressful situations more effectively and gain a deeper sense of personal power.
- Increase your sense of self-esteem, confidence and assertiveness.
- Begin to see which aspects of your life you find fulfilling and satisfying and to consider any changes you could make.
- Develop a better understanding of yourself and communicate with others more effectively.
- Improve your relationships with your partner, family, friends and colleagues.
- Work with your partner in couples therapy to identify what works and what doesn’t and to resolve outstanding issues.
- Grow to understand the effect of past traumas and decrease the impact they have in the present.
- Acknowledge unhelpful habits and patterns in your life and create more helpful and supportive ways to live.
We will have an ongoing dialogue about the work, so you are in control of the pace and methods which you find most effective. I work by drawing on a variety of Humanistic theoretical approaches,such as Gestalt and Formative Psychology.
Clients describe me as a warm, empathic practitioner and I use humour and compassion in my work.
