It can be really difficult to share your deepest concerns, fears and issues. It takes a lot of courage to make yourself vulnerable in this way; trusting another person with your ‘stuff’ can feel deeply uncomfortable and risky. With this in mind, I do my best to build a relationship with you (and your partner or partners) – in which you feel safe, accepted and respected. No matter why you have come to therapy, or what you may share during each session, my role is to try to help you – not judge you.
My overall approach is largely informed by the non-pathologising perspectives of Narrative Therapy (NT), Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT), Positive Psychology, Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT). I also draw on Neuroscience, Attachment & Developmental theory and processes where appropriate. I am a realist and understand that no one way is right for all.
I work with individuals, couples and polycules challenged by bereavement, divorce or separation, changes in status, identity & sexuality issues, and more. I particularly enjoy working with those trying to make sense of finding themselves in an affair; with the 'cheater' and the 'betrayed' after an affair; and those identifying as the 'other person'.
