Hi! My name is Yann and, as an integrative therapist, I believe that there is no single approach that can work for every client in all situations. Each person needs to be considered as a whole, with respect, compassion and acceptance; counselling “techniques” must be tailored to their individual needs and personal circumstances, with care and encouragement. At the heart of my practice is the relationship with my clients - I strive to develop personal, open and transparent relationships - and, as a client, you can expect several things from me: warmth, openness, honesty and kindness.

I work with adults experiencing a variety of issues, including relationships, self-esteem, anxiety, depression, trauma and stress. I use a person-centred approach in therapy. This allows you to explore your thoughts and inner feelings in a safe, caring, and supportive environment, and at your own pace. My therapeutic style is gentle and non-judgemental. I endeavour to offer a space that enables you to feel accepted, nurtured, and supported. I’m interested in you as a whole person. I not only listen to your difficulties, but also to your interests and aspirations, facilitating a holistic view of what may be of help to you.

Finding the right counsellor can be tricky, especially if you're feeling low. I am a calm, warm and open counsellor, who aims to ensure you feel comfortable and secure as soon as possible. I work in a way that emphasises your autonomy, with the aim to promote improved mental health and attain therapeutic outcomes set by you. Previously, I have worked with clients who have experienced grief, depression, loss, trauma, self-harm and other mental health issues. I am open to all clients looking to understand themselves more fully as they navigate their complex lives.

Life can be challenging, overwhelming and sometimes it feels like you're on your own. I often felt like that until I turned to a therapist for some support and guidance along the way. I soon realised that I wasn't on my own. The old saying of 'it's good to talk' is never a truer word spoken. I'm a good listener and I'm ready to hear you. The first step is what you're doing right now. We will work together through the challenges you face and set some goals. Clients often say they want to get back to their old self, however, my hope is that you become able to lead the life you want becoming a better version of your self.

We all experience difficult times in our lives. Big life events, traumatic episodes and life transitions can take their toll on our mental and emotional well-being. Trying to navigate our way through our thoughts & emotions with family member's, or friend's opinions in the mix, can really add to the challenge. Choosing to speak with a counsellor allows you to freely explore what's going on without judgement. You have the space to start your process of releasing, unpicking & healing inner battles; repairing and making sense of your world.

Are you depressed, and lacking in energy? Are you struggling with constant worry and 'on the edge' as if something awful might happen? Is it repetitive thoughts that will not go away, or poor self-esteem that makes interaction with other people, or engaging in activities too difficult to bear? All these are distressing challenges - possibly stemming from past experiences, big life changes and difficult relationships. Seeking help can be daunting, but you have taken the most important step in addressing these issues. I will provide a safe space and walk alongside you to help you understand yourself better.

Sometimes we experience changes or traumas that leave us struggling with the pressures of life, relationships, work, or studies. This can affect our self-esteem, our sense of identity, and our ability to cope. This can become overwhelming and may lead us to unhelpful or harmful thoughts and behaviours. With help, we can overcome our difficulties and learn to manage our emotions more effectively. With compassion, empathy, respect, and a safe space, we feel heard, considered, and valued. By understanding our thoughts and behaviours we can feel empowered to make positive changes that can lead us to fuller and more enjoyable lives.

Finding the right therapist is like figuring out what your favourite quality street chocolate is, you need to go through a few different ones before finding the one you stick with. This can be a tricky process but when we find that right one we are ready to open up to and willing to trust it can be the start of something amazing. My role as an integrative therapist is to provide that safe environment for you to decide what you need and want and if I’m the right person for the job.
