My aim when working with you as a client is to empower and facilitate you to make the necessary changes and improvements to your life and your way of being, that will bring you peace and happiness. Because ultimately that's what we all want, isn't it? To be happy.
As as an integratively trained psychotherapist, I use a range of techniques and tools, which I tailor to meet your individual needs, that help you to explore your troubling issues, and discover exactly what you need to do to begin to overcome them. One of my tools is a range of therapeutic art exercises, that allow you relax and access your subconscious thoughts and feelings and your inner child, so that current and old hurts can come up to be processed and healed. I also incorporate breathing and relaxation exercises, and guided visualisation where appropriate, to help improve clients’ state of mind and aid therapeutic progress
You can be the creator of your own life experiences if you want to be, and as such, in the therapy room how much or little progress happens will be your choice. The pace and content of each therapy session will be to suit you, so you need never feel pressured.
I possess a current DBS check certificate, which supports my eligibility to work safely with young people and vulnerable adults.
I am committed to on-going professional development.
Teenagers face a range of anger, stress and anxiety-provoking issues in the course of their daily lives. This can be caused by anything from exam stress, peer pressure and identity issues, to family or relationship problems, low self-esteem and bullying. Usually, a listening ear, empathy and freedom to speak in a safe and non-judgemental environment is the remedy to help process the negative feelings, build self-confidence and move forward in their lives.
Younger children often find it difficult to clearly identify how they are feeling and why, or to articulately express themselves in words, and therefore negative emotions can build up and manifest in disruptive or reclusive behaviours. With this in mind, younger clients are offered therapy through art and creative play, to help them convey how they are feeling.
A range of toys and art materials, including a sand tray are available to use in session, so that children may work through their issues and express themselves through creative play, story-telling and art, eliminating the need to rely on words. Therapy sessions also serve as a space for the child to fully be themselves, away from the restrictions or expectations of their usual environment, helping them to find their voice, build self-confidence and self-awareness, and see things from a new perspective.
My therapeutic support has helped many individuals to overcome issues that had been having a negative impact on them, and to move forward in their lives.
