As an Integrative Psychotherapist I believe that there is no single approach that can treat each client in all situations. I believe we are all unique individuals and need to be treated as such. I will provide you with the time and space to explore the issues that are important to you. My aim is to enable you to learn more about yourself and the relationship you have with yourself and others. This awareness enables you to have a greater understanding of how you react in the world and the opportunity to change if you wish.
The sessions are 50-60 minutes in a relaxed and confidential atmosphere. They are not a question and answer session but a space for you to talk about what is important to you. I may ask questions but the aim of them will be to help you better understand what is going on for you. There are no 'right' or 'wrong' answers!
The first session is a space for you to tell me what you are hoping for from therapy and for me to explain how therapy may help you. The most important part of any therapy is the relationship between you and I, client and therapist. You need to feel that you can speak openly and honestly to me.
My website gives more insight into what to expect from therapy and please feel free to ring me.
