Hello, here are a few words about what I offer as a psychotherapist. If you have any further questions please dont hesitate to get in touch and ask.
People come to therapy for all kinds of reasons, sometimes because they are struggling to cope with events in their lives. Sometimes because they want to make changes or feel stuck. I offer a safe confidential space for you to explore your issues and understand yourself and your life. Therapy can offer a different perspective on your experiences and help you to integrate your past and present, as well as opening up the future. In some ways being in therapy is like having an experienced guide who is walking with you on your journey.
As well as being an integrative psychotherapist, I am trained in trauma recovery and have years of clinical experience in this area. When we have been through traumatic experiences ( which nearly everyone has in one way or another) our body and mind can stop working together properly. Sometimes we might feel disconnected from our experience of the world, or unable to get close to other people and have the kind of relationships we would like to. I am trained to help you understand your mind, emotions and reactions, and can help you to start feeling connected and capable of living in the way you would like to again.
I offer both short and long term options. Happy to talk all of this through with you and answer any questions in a free telephone call prior to our first meeting.
I currently offer face to face therapy in Canterbury and online therapy via Zoom.
