As an integrative psychotherapist, I offer one to one counselling on both a short and long term basis. By ‘integrative’ I mean that I draw upon a mix of the best known modalities depending on the needs of the client.
So while I do not rigidly follow one method, the principle strands I work with are Person-centred counselling and Existentialism. I am also interested in the work of Carl Jung, Attachment theory, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), and issues related to living in unfamiliar cultures.
The most significant common thread through all of the above modalities is the relationship between client and therapist, which I believe is instrumental in the client experiencing positive growth during therapy.
I have experience dealing with depression; anxiety; marital, family, relationship, illness, cultural and work problems; sexual issues; loneliness; and those seeking greater satisfaction and fulfillment from their lives.
