Are you struggling with anxiety or depression? Do you feel stuck or overwhelmed by things? Are your relationships causing you distress? Coming to talk to someone in a confidential setting can help you make sense of your experiences, and support you as you find better ways to cope and manage your feelings.
My name is Nandi, and I can offer you this supportive space. My way of working is very collaborative – we explore what you want to explore, and whilst you guide the direction of the sessions, I will hold and support you as we focus on the detail.
As a relational integrative counsellor, my approach is influenced by the three main schools of psychotherapy - Humanistic, Psychodynamic and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). This means that I can tailor the sessions to meet your needs better, and offer you skills and insights that are both relevant to the here and now, and informed by earlier experiences in your childhood. My focus fundamentally is on your relationships – with yourself, with important people in your life, and with the environment around you.
A key part of therapy is about enabling you to take back control of your life, and that starts with your initial enquiry. I am always open to answer any questions you may have about therapy itself, or me as a therapist. If you feel comfortable about working with me, we can book an initial session and see how it goes. There’s no commitment to stay – the direction and duration of your therapy is in your hands.
