Therapy for adults, as I practice it, provides a space to explore, to feel understood at one’s own pace, to work through complex issues and dilemmas, to get more in touch with oneself and find ways of overcoming unhelpful patterns. I aim to help to resolve current problems and develop deeper self-acceptance. In order to be helped, I believe people need to feel safe, accepted, facilitated and not judged, but we also all need to be challenged at times. Therapy is a serious matter and can stir up painful feelings, can take us to places we are fearful of, but it can also be an enjoyable and creative process.
The therapy I offer will be tailored differently for each client. I tend to see people for a minimum of once a week and at the same time/s, and people can be seen for either short or longer periods, depending on what we both feel is needed. The work is always confidential, respectful and facilitative, while occasionally challenging.
I am happy to work with a range of issues, for example:
- Stress and anxiety
- Sexual issues
- Lack of meaning
- Attachment issues
- Struggles with creativity
- Lack of confidence
- Feeling out of control
- Trauma and abuse
I often work with people who are at important cross-roads, such as in mid-life or following a bereavement or wanting a career change, as well as with artists and performers.
