I am an Integrative Psychotherapist. I am very grounded in Psychodynamic Theory, working from the premise that the experiences that we have had as children, how we learned to relate to others and the world around us can continue to affect how we are as adults.
I draw on other Theoretical Approaches and techniques, thus being able to offer therapy to suit the individual needs of each client.
I believe in the importance of providing a safe and supportive environment where a therapeutic relationship can be established.
My work with couples is based on respect and enabling a couple to find the solution to their difficulties in a safe and listening environment.
