I am an experienced integrative relational therapist, I provide counselling and psychotherapy online and face to face in the West Yorkshire area. I work with a variety of issues and I integrate several different forms of therapy into my practice to meet the needs of my clients. Theoretical integration involves blending different theoretical frameworks and their methods; for me this includes a number of influences including person centred therapy, transactional analysis, mindfulness, my work is supported by theories of attachment and relationship.
Working relationally is the heart of my practice, relational theory focuses on achieving empowerment and growth through working closely with another. The collaborative relationship between the therapist and the client supports the process of self understanding enabling individuals to move forward with their lives and reach greater acceptance of themselves and others.
What we learned in the past affects the way we act in the here and now, looking at beliefs and patterns founded in our history can help us better understand how and why we are experiencing difficulties in the present. From this place of understanding we can begin to acknowledge, accept and readjust and live life more fully.
I am committed to meeting the needs of the individuals I work with at emotional depth offering support, safety, reassurance and a non judgemental response. I specialise in Grief therapy - helping bereaved clients manage their loss.
