MBACP accredited / UKRC registerEd
Most people come to therapy because they are wanting greater levels of well being in their life. There may be a relationship breakdown or disconnection, a painful change of life circumstance, sadness, depression, guilt and anxiety - these issues visit all of us at some point in our lives. As an experienced therapist, I have been helping people through these difficulties for the past 15 years.
The core of my work is about helping people to see all the ways in which self judgement, self rejection and lack of compassion and forgiveness for ourselves - lies at the root of much of our suffering.
I work with clients to develop greater levels of self acceptance and self compassion. Aspects of therapy are also practical and may involve developing new ways of relating to yourself and others, solving problems and developing new skills which will enable you to create healthier and more satisfying bonds.
A key aspect of my way of working is that I place an equal focus on what is strong, healthy and successful in your life. By acknowledging, articulating and building on what is working well, clients are enabled and empowered, not only to solve problems and gain new perspectives, but also to achieve higher levels of hope, resilience and confidence.
Collaborative, empowering approach
Always keeping in mind the goals you set, the focus is on understanding your motivations, attitudes and feelings as well as your deepest held beliefs about yourself, others and the world. This allows you to begin to challenge negative beliefs and thoughts which interfere with stable levels of well- being and happiness.
Sessions are dynamic and solution focussed.
A deepening understanding of yourself facilitates a more conscious and intentional approach to life and the challenges you face. As awareness increases you will find that you are able to step away from rote and conditioned behaviour and instead - choose and experiment with healthy and more empowered ways of being.
