Attachment-Based Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist
HTML with PHP
I am a MBACP registered psychotherapist with nearly 30 years of experience helping people through psychotherapy and counselling. Therapy can be enjoyable as well as challenging and my focus is on creating a safe and confidential space from which to help you address life's challenges in a creative and meaningful way. I also offer online therapy.
Philosophy and Approach:
My style of working is rooted in Attachment-based Psychoanalytic Theory and Neuroscience, which I then build on using an array of creative techniques including Person Centred, Systemic Family Systems(which locates the struggle in the context of larger family dynamics), Transpersonal Perspectives Theory, I don’t believe in a “one size fits all” therapy – every client is different – therefore therapy is a natural and evolving process and its pace and intensity will vary depending on the needs of the client. This means that I strive to help you feel better as quickly as possible in a way that is lasting. Much of the work I do is about helping clients learn to tolerate anxiety. As you learn to observe the sensations and thoughts that manifest as anxiety you deepen your knowledge of what drives your reactions, and as a result new choices and ways of being in the world unfold. You move from being reactive to being proactive and purposeful. To gain the most of our time together, I will gently encourage you to find the words and pace that feel right. Our space is confidential, so everything that you stay will remain strictly between us in accordance with BACP and UKCP ethical guidelines.
“Most of us are trying to live an authentic life. Deep down, we want to take off our game face and be real and imperfect.” – Brene Brown It is often unprocessed feelings and unconscious beliefs that lead to difficulty in our lives. My goal as a therapist is to support my clients to move through whatever struggle they are facing and ultimately feel more connected in their relationships and more empowered in their lives.
