Are you looking for someone who will take the time to listen and try to understand where you are? I know that it can be frightening to feel alone and isolated and it’s a courageous act to reach out and seek the help you long for. Or you may be feeling stuck and need help to work through those blocks that are preventing you from living an authentic life. Wherever you are on the path, I offer warmth, empathy and a safe and supportive space for you to explore whatever you want or need to better understand your experience.
I have found from my own experience that many of our emotional problems are rooted in loss: of our innocence, childhood and dreams as well as loved ones, relationships and missed opportunities. Sometimes we can get stuck in unresolved grief because it feels too painful or traumatic to remember. But through remembering and allowing the feelings to be released, we can begin to mourn and move on.
I believe we have an innate capacity to discover what makes us tick. Through curiosity, courage and persistence we can learn to understand our motivations and realise the possibility of change. I am also aware that the potential for change can be impacted by social, political and economic structures outside of our individual control. However, with therapeutic support you can learn to be more effective in your life.
If you think therapy might help, I suggest an initial consultation, at no charge, where you can talk about the issues and I can explain how I work and answer any questions. Then, if we feel we can work together, we'll arrange a time to meet weekly.
