A Client - Centered, Relational Approach

Original on Transparent_edited_edited_ed

Fundamentally my approach is relational and client-centred. I believe in psychotherapy that honours the importance of a safe, supportive and nurturing therapeutic relationship. This is the cornerstone of what makes therapy successful. It is important that you feel listened to and your experience is truly gotten. Some of us have not had enough attunement or acceptance in our lives and that can cause great pain. 

You can expect that you will be welcomed in, feel accepted and given space for your feelings and experience. I believe in the principle of non-violence which means you will feel that I am following alongside you, respecting and honouring your inherent wisdom, rather than shoved into a one-size-fits all model. We will work together to learn about your experiences in life that have shaped you and the reasons why you are experiencing difficulties today.

 

My approach to therapy sees your behaviours and ways of being as being creative adaptations to your lifetime experiences and you formed strategies to cope. Some adaptations are really useful. Some are now limiting you. We work together as a team to compassionately understand those strategies and see where your inner wisdom is telling you what wants to change. 

Online videoconferencing sessions

I am pleased to offer online Videoconferencing Clinical Counselling and Hypnotherapy sessions. Online therapy is safe, highly effective and research proven to be just as effective and in some cases even more effective. 

There's no time like now to give online counselling a try. Being able to connect virtually has revolutionized the way we can access mental health support. From the comfort of your own home, office, car or even out in the fresh open air you can get compassionate support and effective tools for ending painful cycles of depression, anxiety and stress, trauma wounds and relationship stress.
