Over the years I have worked with clients on short-term and long-term arrangements, dealing with depression, abandonment, anxiety, shame, suicidal crisis, bereavement, anger, low self-esteem, panic disorders, relationship issues, trauma, questions of spirituality and meaning, such as Who am I?
My approach to Therapy
I offer Transpersonal Integrative Psychotherapy; this means that I have a wider range of modalities at my disposal, rather than working one way. Consequently, I can choose, adopt and adapt the appropriate style for each client. After all, we are all unique and the therapy is never the same.
At the heart of my practice and for the work to be successful is the relationship between the therapist and the client, so an exploratory meeting is essential. An initial consultation will establish if it feels right for us to work together, and at that time we will agree on a fixed number of sessions or a more open-ended arrangement. Only through you feeling comfortable with our working relationship that we will be able to proceed. Our work together will begin with a period of getting to know you and during this time we will discuss the area that you would like to transform.
I might ask you to complete certain tasks designed to help you develop more effective coping skills. This approach often involves homework assignments. I draw on many practices including visualisation, dream exploration, drawing, role-play, sandplay and the most familiar method: a conversation between two people.
