About the Therapy
As an integrative psychotherapeutic therapist, I work in flexible way with you, drawing on a range of therapeutic approaches to meet your individual needs. The theoretical approaches I work with include Person Centred, Psychodynamic, Gestalt and Existential. I am also trained to work with creative arts and metaphor.
I can work with you in a short term (six to twelve week) framework, or on a longer term, open ended basis; this is dependent upon the support you feel you need and the issues that you bring. We can explore this when we meet.
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 between client and therapist, the client is able to reflect on difficult, or painful experiences, with the counsellor alongside, providing non-judgmental and empathic presence and support, offering new perspectives and helping the client to gain insight into the ways in which their difficulties may be connected to life choices, or the ways in which they relate to others.
