Sometimes we need a little help to face certain problems, challenges or difficulties in life.
Psychotherapy is a talking therapy. It’s like an opening or clearing in the forest - a non-judgemental space in your life to explore experiences, to be understood, and to increase awareness of what’s going on for you, and your relationships with others. Ultimately, engaging in the process of therapy can help us to live more authentically, more fully in the present.
I‘m an integrative therapist with a doctorate in psychotherapy, and a broad training background in various other approaches (e.g. cognitive behavioural therapy, compassion focussed therapy, interpersonal psychotherapy).
I have extensive experience mostly in the NHS and private practice but also in the third sector.
I take an inclusive, non-pathologising view of gender and sexuality and recognise the broad range of gender, sexual, and relationship diversities (GSRD).
Even though there are many different types of psychotherapy, when looking for someone to work with, one of the most important things is to feel really comfortable talking to them, and feel heard.it’s also important they are properly accredited with. Professional body.
I prefer to take a pluralistic perspective and have an interest in a range of different theoretical and practical ideas. I recognise the importance of evidence-based practice as well as practice-based evidence.
Experienced therapists draw on a range of theoretical and technical ideas depending on what you’ve said you want to get out of the work.
