Deciding to seek therapy can be one of the biggest steps in your life. It is so important to find a therapist who is right for you. I work on the basis that the client is the expert and operates holistically with the humanistic model at the core of the therapy. My integrative style enables me to be able to adapt and respond to clients' needs.
A great deal of time and focus is placed on the relationship, which in turn builds trust and rapport - trust in each other and the therapeutic process. As trust grows, so does confidence and the individual. I would encourage anyone to seek out a therapist who can support them to unlock their true self and full potential.
So, if you are facing struggles that feel unmanageable, or you are worried or anxious, talking therapy could help to discover the answers.
The core of my way of working is person-centered. This means it is non-directive and client-led. We will work from your own personal circumstances. At the center of our sessions will be the core values - empathy, congruence (being genuine), and unconditional positive regard (acceptance of you as an individual).
Depending on the individual, I may use other therapeutic models which may include challenge, being creative, exploring the past, and other well-established techniques that will benefit clients' needs.

“People are just as wonderful as sunsets if you let them be. When I look at a sunset, I don't find myself saying, "Soften the orange a bit on the right hand corner." I don't try to control a sunset. I watch with awe as it unfolds.”
