I work in an integrative way. This means I am able to provide a unique insight based on your own individual needs. My aim is to help you to express yourself in any way you choose, without fear of judgement. I believe this is important as within this openness you may be able to discover the person you would really like to be.
During this process I aim to help you to unlock any emotions or circumstances which may have impacted on your current emotional state. My aim is to highlight patterns of thinking and behaviour in order to allow positive change.
Sessions are offered weekly and I provide short term , long term, and open ended work. I offer an initial assessment to give you the chance to meet with me and explore how we might work together.
The working relationship we build together is important to me.With this in mind feel free to contact me with any concerns or questions you may have- I am happy to have a short 5 minute conversation over the phone prior to assessment to help with your decision to engage with me in therapy.
