In my experience, what matters most is the quality of the relationship between you as client and me as therapist. I provide a safe and contained space in which we can work together to help you observe yourself, to make the changes you might like or find the acceptance you need.
Sometimes challenging, but always kind, I draw on over thirty years working with people in caring and supportive roles, fifteen of which are as a psychotherapist.
In practice my various trainings and experience come together to inform how we shall work together work. I am aware that we need different things at different points in life, and have the training and experience to adapt to your situation, whatever it maybe.
There may be a desire to look at your past relationships, your history, and your unconscious for clues. Or, you may wish to focus on the future and what that may hold.
Indeed you may wish to consider how the past and future, conscious and unconscious, body and mind, your inner and outer nature all work together.
My training started with a four-year clinical and academic Post Graduate Diploma in Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, with further trainings in Ecopsychotherapy, Forest bathing, trauma focused EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing) and CBT.
I consider myself a life-long learner.
