Few sail through life without encountering obstacles of one sort or another. For the most part we adjust to challenges or emotional upset using our own internal healing systems. Occasionally though, we just can't find a way through the pain and can't understand what went wrong. At these times it is really helpful to talk with someone who is trained to notice the emotions behind your words, and it is by noticing these emotions solutions to your troubles can be found.
From a holistic perspective, my therapy incorporates evidence-based approaches including Talk therapy, Acceptance & Commitment Therapy, Utilization Theory, Attachment Repair work & Hypnotherapy. I strive to understand my clients as fully as possible, giving them strategies which facilitate healing outcomes, leading to lasting growth and wellbeing.
The strength of our therapeutic alliance is crucial to the effectiveness of therapy. To this end my goal is to make you feel as comfortable as possible, while appreciating you as the expert in your own life. By offering strategies and unconditional support I hope to assist your recovery from anxiety, rumination and relationship issues.
