You may be wondering if therapy is for you. Therapy can be many different things to different people. You may have a specific problem you would like to address - a difficult relationship, an unsatisfying job, lack self-confidence and low self-esteem, nightmares and flashbacks provoked by unresolved traumatic events in your life. You may be experiencing a vague feeling that something is not right, a general sense of detachment from yourself and others.
As a registered MBACP psychotherapeutic Counsellor and Coach, I address common life-cycle matters and transitions in collaboration with clients to increase resilience, develop new ways to solve problems, and resolve emotional hurts including relational traumas. Clients can be honest with themselves when they sense that their therapist can feel their distress from inside and is able to help them access what drives their difficulties in living.
I believe that anyone can achieve a more satisfying life, have more enjoyable relationships and grow confidence in their ability to handle challenging situations or overcome the effects of traumatic events. That said, it can be hard to make changes when life feels overwhelming or crisis ensues and you're not sure what to do. At these times, the support of a compassionate, engaged therapist, who will strive to understand your unique experience, and support you through the sometimes tough, sometimes exhilarating work of change, growth and recovery can make a difference.
I integrate therapeutic and coaching techniques and interventions to meet your particular needs. What matters is that you get help in your effort to grow, master your problems and become more effective in your life. Both therapy and coaching approaches aim to do this.
