My counselling approach
I hold a diploma in integrative counselling. My approach is led by what you bring, focused on your aims for counselling and what might be helpful. I blend several theoretical models (including psychodynamic, attachment and body psychotherapy) aiming to look at the person a whole.
I believe that our past shapes us and that early relationships might influence our way of developing relationships with significant others in the present. Therapy offers an opportunity to develop new ways of relating with others and oneself.
I work with the bodymind (thoughts, feelings and physical experience) encouraging mindfulness of our full experience. Being present to the fullness of our experience opens us to healing and change.
I believe that wider social and cultural dynamics outside the therapy room influence our experience and sense of identity. I might explore how these dynamics affect what we bring to therapy.
The most important aspect of therapy is the relationship we will develop: this will allow you to explore your experience, feelings, the inner conflicts you might have. I offer a safe, non-judgemental and confidential space. I hope to encourage openness between us and welcome your feedback.
