We are in unprecedented times, life is complex and difficult to navigate for most people.
I can provide a safe space where we can meet to talk about what matters to you and as well as a space to for the exploratory work necessary to understand the feelings you are having and to recognise and change unhelpful patterns of behaviour.
As a psychotherapist I am interested in:
Doing what I can to alleviate suffering. I listen to both unconscious and literal communications. I have an interest in human development and personality formation; attachment styles, how we form relationships and why we come to relate the way we do. I do this through a systemic way of thinking of thinking about people in the context of their family and wider social settings.
To be truly heard and emotionally met where you are at can be a powerful and restorative experience for most people.
I offer an initial 15 minute conversation on the telephone for which there is no charge, as I understand it is a big deal starting therapy, it is therefore important to have a space to ask questions and see if we are the ‘right fit'.
