About the Therapy
As an integrative psychotherapeutic therapist, I offer a flexible way of supporting you, with the benefit of being able to draw on a range of therapeutic approaches to meet your personal needs. I have been trained to work with Psychodynamic and Humanistic (Person Centred, Gestalt and Existential), and also use Solution focused and CBT informed approaches.
I offer face-to-face, online and telephone counselling
I can work with you in a long term, open ended, or short term solution-focused framework; this is dependent on the issues that you are seeking support with. I generally recommend that we meet for a number of sessions and then review the therapy to decide how we move forward.
Sessions take place on a weekly basis, which supports the building of trust and containment in the therapeutic space, supporting the process of therapy.
I offer a FREE 30 minute consultation, without obligation, which is an opportunity for us to discuss your support needs and for you to find out more about how I practice, to help us to decide if we are happy to work together.
How it works
The quality of the relationship between counsellor and client is central to integrative therapy and the process of healing. As trust develops in the therapeutic relationship, the client is able to reflect on difficult experiences, with the counsellor alongside, providing non-judgmental, consistent and empathic presence, offering new perspectives and helping the client to gain insight into the ways in which their difficulties are connected to life experiences, life choices, or the ways in which they relate to others.
