I am an integrative transpersonal psychotherapist, working with adults (18+) and couples, and I also run support groups.
What does integrative mean?
'Integrative' means I have lots of different therapeutic styles in my toolkit, which I flex to suit your needs. You may generally be feeling stuck in your life, or at a cross-roads, or you may be lacking purpose or drive. Or you may be going through a particularly tricky time and be looking for a safe, non-judgemental space to unpack and talk through specific events to help you make sense of them.
Whatever you have to bring, I commit to listening and helping you to make sense of things, so you can find the best way forward for you.
How do I work?
I work quite creatively, and in addition to straightforward ‘talking therapy’ we may work with your dreams, through creative expression such as art, or exploring your internal landscape through meditation and visualisation techniques. A combination of these techniques is usually used to help you achieve the results you are looking for.
My therapeutic style is active and dynamic - I tailor each session and always provide a safe and nurturing container, but will gently challenge and hold the mirror up where appropriate in the spirit of your psychological development and growth. The key thing to remember is we always go at your pace.
