What can clients expect?
Some people come to counselling because they are just curious and want to understand themselves better, whereas the majority of clients come because they want to change something in their lives but are often unsure of how to change it.
My goal is to support the growth of individuals, couples and families, through self-discovery and understanding of the connections, between the past and how it affects current thoughts and present behaviour(s).
I provide a space that gives you the time to work through your problems safely.
My theoretical approach is Integrative, which means I can use a combination of approaches to meet the needs and goals of each client. These include
Psychodynamic therapy helps clients to examine not just what they are experiencing consciously; it also taps into their unconscious mind, to create a much clearer picture of why they may be struggling.
Solution-focused therapy explores the individual's current resources and future hopes and works toward empowering them to make their own changes; it is a goal-directed approach to solving some of life’s problems.
Existential therapy helps clients to find meaning and purpose in life. It supports free will, self-determination and the search for meaning. Often centering on how individuals use their ability to make rational choices to develop to their maximum potential.
CBT therapy deals with your current problems, rather than focusing on issues from your past. It looks for practical ways to improve your state of mind on a daily basis using homework in-between sessions.
Putting theories aside I believe therapy works well; whatever the modality when the client feels safe and relaxed with you, they often speak freely and are able to engage in the process of constructive change.
