- Video and telephone consultations
I am offering in-person and remote sessions via telephone or video call.
With a background in nursing, I am able to work with issues relating to mental health and well-being, as well as general personal and relationship issues. I can offer different therapy approaches to suit individual needs.
How I work
I respect the uniqueness of each individual and believe clients are the experts on themselves. I use a holistic approach, helping clients to use their own resources and build on their strengths, working through issues, solving problems, achieving goals, and increasing self-awareness.
My Approach & Philosophy
My approach is friendly and client-centred; and my philosophy is integrative, informed by several psychological theories, including psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioural, humanistic and Gestalt.
I believe that the past can affect the present and, subsequently, determine the future; and so it can be useful to explore past experiences.
For some difficulties, it helps to focus on changing the patterns of thinking and behaviour which can lie behind problems.
I also find that the relationship between the therapist and client can be very informative, supportive and healing.
