About me

CUDOX Therapy and Training

If you have ever watched Bridget Jones you may well remember this scene from the film (apologies for those who are not a hapless ‘rom-com’ addict like me!)

Mark Darcy:
I like you, very much

Bridget:
Ah, apart from the smoking and the drinking, the vulgar mother and….and the verbal diarrhoea

Mark Darcy:
No, I like you very much ……….Just as you are

I often wondered what would happen if Bridget could offer this level of acceptance to herself….the idea that she could embrace all the good, bad and hidden parts of her self?

And herein lies my philosophy behind CUDOX Therapy and Training:

“The Curious Paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change”
                                                                                            Carl Rogers, 1956

As a qualified and passionate person-centred counsellor I truly believe in the qualities of the therapeutic relationship. This isn’t about techniques or strategies, but about providing a safe space for you to be truly heard, to give a voice to the parts of you that may only have known silence.

I am not afraid to be beside you in your fear, darkness, chaos and confusion. I will stay with you when you feel ‘stuck’, will support you to express those feelings when you have no words and help to give clarity to the fog.

I know I am not a fixer and I don’t have the answers. Yet I completely get at times how this can feel excruciatingly frustrating. The amount of times I have heard a client say “ But I want you to tell me what to do!”. We live in a generation where a solution is just a few moments from our grasp thanks to the immediacy of the internet and therefore the search to be fixed is compelling.

Yet it is often the process in between where the real potential lies. I strongly believe people can be empowered to find their own answers when they no longer feel on their own.

Choosing the right partnership in therapy is the key to feeling safe to explore your inner-most thoughts and feelings. It’s being able to develop the trust in me that it’s okay to say “no that’s not what I meant” or “I’m feeling angry with you”. Yes, you read that right! I value the risk of honesty and wholeheartedly believe the relationship in therapy is wonderfully unique, in all its challenges and conquests.

I very much look forward to meeting you.
