Got a question for the therapist
I have a background in psychological services and working within a humanistic framework take the view that every person and their personal journey is unique to them. I am committed to providing a safe, confidential and non-judgmental space for clients wishing to undertake an exploration of the problems and dilemmas currently impacting upon their life, making use of the therapeutic relationship to examine how their past may be effecting not only their present day living but also contributing to their expectations of the future. As I am strongly influenced by the humanistic therapies this means I believe that each person is a unique individual and has the answers to their problems within themselves. It also means that my work stems from ideas informed by person -centred, gestalt, transactional analysis, focusing and existential therapies. In order for counselling/psychotherapy to be helpful, I believe it is important to be empathic and develop an honest, accepting and non-judgemental therapeutic relationship with you, the client, listening to you with the respect, understanding and compassion you deserve. Within the therapeutic space, I endeavour to communicate my own experience of you as a human being interacting with me as another human being. Life and counselling/psychotherapy can both be 'messy' - both can get difficult at times and it is in working through these difficult times openly and honestly that counselling can be most effective, assisting in making meaning of, and clarifying things that are unclear, and making sense of where we are and where we might want to go in our lives. Whilst we cannot change regrets from the past we can perhaps try our best to ensure that at a future point in time we reduce the acquisition of new regrets from this point forward and change repetitive and destructive thinking patterns and behaviours that may once have worked for us, but now seem to be causing us problems. In offering a safe space counselling/psychotherapy can enable you to explore and make sense of emotional events in the past, that are often too painful and difficult to discuss with people who know you - making sense of the way you experience and live your life. There are no magic answers or cures but I aim to provide an opportunity for you to explore the choices available to you and how you want to make decisions about them, in the light of a deeper understanding of yourself. Thereby leading to the potential for enriching and enhancing your life, by changing the way you respond to others and the world around you and effecting change in how others and the world respond to you. My focus is always your well-being and psychological health.
