Integrative Psychodynamic Psychotherapist - Individual and Couple Therapist
I am an experienced psychologist and psychotherapist offering therapy in a warm, safe and confidential environment. Together we can work towards exploring issues that might be causing you distress or we can focus on helping you to understand your feelings, thoughts, behaviours and your relationship patterns. Our work together aims to inspire positive changes in your life that could enhance your mental, physical and emotional well being and help you live your life fully.
I commit to provide counselling and psychotherapy in a safe, confidential and non-judgmental environment.
I work with individuals, couples and young people, on an open-ended basis or for an agreed time period. I also work with parents who wish to develop effective ways of parenting their children and wish to have a fulfilling and content family life.
I am interested in your life 'here and now' and I am also interested to help you explore your past experiences and your learned patterns of perceptions, values and behaviours. I encourage curiosity and active participation. I am a warm, approachable and flexible therapist.
Training, qualifications and experience
I hold a BSc in Psychology and an MSc in Integrative Therapeutic Counselling. I am a registered member of BACP and BPS. In addition I hold a PG Diploma in Psychodynamic Supervision by the WPF accredited by BPS. I adhere to the strictly code of Ethics both from BACP and BPS.
Integrative Psychotherapy is a combined approach to psychotherapy that brings together different elements of specific therapies such as Psychodynamic, Person Centred, and Cognitive Behavioural Modalities.
Relationship Based Approach
Based on the idea that strong and fulfilling relationships with other individuals can help people maintain emotional well-being, this model may be beneficial to people seeking therapy for any number of reasons, but in particular to address long-term emotional distress, especially when distress occurs as a result of relational concerns.
As a therapist, I strongly believe that the therapeutic relationship between therapist and client is immensely important, thus I hope to facilitate a safe environment where you feel accepted, listened to and able to find your own voice.
Are you experiencing difficulties with:
Low self -esteem
Abuse, sexual, physical or emotional
Pre or Post Natal Depression
Whatever your issue, I commit to provide honest, warm and respectful engagement. My approach is based on providing opportunities for exploration, reflection, noting past experiences and future opportunities, accurate interpretation, and attending to your experience.
