With over two decades of clinical experience, my therapeutic approach involves a combination of the modalities outlined below. The underpinning nature of my work comes from an existential perspective where the nature of one’s experience and meaning are examined. Essentially we try to make sense of our surroundings, trying to understand ourselves, other people, and their place in the world. This view of ourselves is created by the influences of time, place, culture, society and family. These influences and experiences help in shaping the character and personalities of ourselves as individuals but also our place in this world.
I work in a way that draws upon psycho-dynamic, humanistic, cognitive, emotion-focused, existential and Buddhist theories to allow the client to explore their world in more detail; to understand how they view themselves and to see themselves more clearly so that they can make informed choices on how best to deal with situations in more appropriate ways.
The work is done in a collaborative way between myself and the client and I use the relationship to explore the client’s own sense of self and how they relate to others and the world. “Emotion is the chief source of all becoming-conscious. There can be no transforming of darkness into light and of apathy into movement without emotion.” — Jung

The work has a collaborative approach to it, one with curiosity, presence, respect and compassion to the client to help them understand what may be the deeper components happening to them with the symptoms that they present. While I have had professional training and have many years of experience I believe that the client knows best for themselves, so this is something I want to support them with.
