My Integrative Approach to Therapy

I am trained as an integrative therapist which allows me to use a range of therapeutic tools to fit your individual needs and therapeutic goals.

I offer a space where you can press pause on the outside world, allowing you to talk freely, without judgement, so that you can fully explore the thoughts, feelings and experiences that might be troubling you.

 

I think the best therapeutic work comes from a strong therapeutic bond based on trust and so the relationship between us will form part of our work together.

Depending on what makes sense to you, I will use a blend of  Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Humanistic, Gestalt and Psychodynamic approaches.

I offer sessions face-to face or via Zoom and these can be open-ended or time-limited.
