How I work

I am a Humanistic Psychotherapist and Counsellor which means that therapy takes form in a conversation. I see us as equals and work to support you on your exploration to find a more satisfying way of being.  I believe that we all have the potential to take charge of our lives and that the respectful nature of the therapeutic relationship can work to facilitate that power. Celebrating the best parts of ourselves can help us to grow or change the parts we are less confident about. I work both one-to-one with adult individuals and couples of all ages, races, cultures, religious backgrounds and sexual orientation in a safe and confidential space.  

I believe that we are all unique and as a result we require different ways of working.  My practice is informed by the work of Gestalt, Transactional Analysis and Formative Psychology and I am influenced by the work of Stanley Keleman, Fritz Perls, Virginia Satir, Irvin Yalom and Brené Brown. 

If after our initial meeting we decide to work together, we would meet once a week on the same day and at the same time, for as long as the work continues to be effective and beneficial to you. I offer either brief (6-10 sessions) or open-ended therapy where we will review the process periodically to ensure you are getting the most from our time together.

When the time comes to end our work it is important to make sure we have a proper ending, this may be over the course of two sessions but I would always aim that we have at least one so that we can review and complete all that has gone before in order to say goodbye in a satisfying way.
