I practice from a developmental-relational approach; this involves integrating different approaches and drawing them together based on central psychotherapeutic principles. These are, that the client-therapist relationship is an essential aspect of growth and change, and that how we are as adults is formed through our childhood experiences and later events. As children, if parts of us are not supported in developing they cannot integrate into parts of our personality.
I have a special interest in the impact of Early Trauma and Attachment failure; and its effects upon an individuals sense of Self. Alongside this, I help clients to develop an integral awareness of the physiological and emotional effects they experience as a result of their struggles.
I offer a professional service from my private practice in Nottingham, in a relaxed and comfortable environment. My services include, individual short and long term Integrative Psychotherapy and Counselling.
