Tammy Payne (MBACP)
I work from the premise that you have the answers you need within yourself to feel better. It may not seem this way right now, if you are stuck, lost or overwhelmed, but i explore this premise by listening to your story with a non-judgmental ear. Sometimes just feeling heard can give you space to understand and value yourself. From there you may want to explore together with me: your patterns, your thinking or your way of being. You may not feel like exploring anything. You may just want to let out your distress with another human being. I am here for this. I believe this is a powerful step to take.
My approach is integrative, combining humanistic and existential ways of working:
The humanistic approach respects your unique-ness and works with how you are affected by the world and other people in your life, rather than clinically assessing or labelling you.
The existential approach sees your relationships as the key to understanding any anxiety, uncertainty and choices.
