Counselling and psychotherapy are umbrella terms that cover a range of talking therapies. They are delivered by trained practitioners who work with people over a short or long term to help them bring about effective change and/or enhance their wellbeing.
Talking therapies can help with many difficult life problems - from coping with traumatic experiences and events, to dealing with depression and anxiety or managing harmful emotions and behaviours.
Therapy helps you to gain a greater awareness of those aspects of yourself that you are currently less aware of, or even unaware of, and in doing so enables you to make clearer choices for yourself and for your life.
My role as your therapist has three main functions:
I practise an integrative model of counselling and psychotherapy which is informed by humanistic and person-centred approaches, psychoanalytic and psychodynamic theories, and transpersonal psychology. Due to its flexibility the integrative approach is highly adaptable and well suited to most people.
