You may be wondering how Psychotherapy will help you. However, research has found this to be true. Seated in a safe place with an understanding and informed Psychotherapist can be your first step towards healing and resolution. My approach to Psychotherapy is flexible, caring and compassionate with an aim towards a more understanding relationship with yourself and others. Also, you will never be viewed as a "problem to be fixed", but as a unique person with your own difficulties and obstacles to overcome.

I am an experienced counsellor and psychotherapist who works with adults in person or online. My approach is informal and relaxed. I don’t make judgements or tell you what you should do or think. I begin by helping you describe what is troubling you. I listen carefully and support you to make sense of your experiences, thoughts, and emotions. I help you to find meanings, identify patterns, and explore your choices. I support you to think about yourself more compassionately and clearly; strengthen your sense of who you are and better understand your relationships. An approach confirmed by current research to aid positive change.

I am a qualified counsellor and psychotherapist with six years experience of working with clients. My training is 'Integrative’ which means that I work with distress, trauma, and all of life's difficulties in a way which seeks to create,or recreate, a sense of wholeness and relationship. I want to work with you in partnership, seeking to understand together what’s troubling you, and where things might have got stuck. We will talk about the past, as all therapists do, but I also want to help you think about what is going on for you now. The things which have brought you to therapy.

Sometimes words are not enough, and sometimes you need to talk. I can support you in finding different ways to express, explore, and understand how you feel. I will be guided by what you need from a therapeutic relationship, and I will respond with care, kindness, creativity, and sometimes a small dash of humour. I bring these same things to my work as a therapist, and as a supervisor.

The relationship that I have with my clients is being that person who is down-to-earth and approachable and with whom they can find a connection. They can talk to me openly, feeling safe to invest in the counselling process and feel respected in a completely non-judgmental environment. My clients choose to work with me because I'm "authenticated and real".

Do you feel ripped apart and shaken to your core? You don't want to be a burden to friends and can't talk to family, it is all so overwhelming. The deepest pit of despair and hurt, mixed emotions, anguish, anger, confusion, barely coping with intense non-stop life changes. Loss of family, partner or treasured friends, sudden or chronic terminal illness, loss of the person you used to be, ageing, guilty lifestyle, fear of a new job and moving, or the prickling heartache from loss of your pet. You don’t even have the strength to take the next step, to pull yourself through while trying to reach your old self. You need a safe space.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, psychologist, or counsellor, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counsellor in Lancaster?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in Lancaster specialise in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or counsellor who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

Can I afford counselling?
Yes. Most counsellors offer reasonable rates or will work on a sliding scale basis. Many accept health insurance. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the counsellor.
