Integrative Counselling

I believe in the power of understanding each person's unique experience. As an Integrative Counsellor, I draw from the foundational works of Sigmund Freud's psychodynamic theory and I am influenced by the empathetic approach of Carl Rogers, the father of person-centred therapy. These may be terms you’ve not heard of, you can find out more about this approach here.

I recognise both the influence of the unconscious mind and the individual's inherent potential for growth and self-discovery. Together, we will work towards increasing self-awareness, exploring emotional issues, and developing healthier coping mechanisms. 

I value compassion and strive to keep it present in your therapy, as we often grow away from showing compassion to ourselves.

I strongly believe in confidentiality, professionalism, and ethical values while embracing the uniqueness of my human side. I aim to connect in a therapeutic relationship characterized by honesty, fairness, and commitment.

I recognize the importance of trauma and past experiences, as well as your unique motivation and triggers, approaching them without judgment. 

I have a shy creative side, which I tend to bring into our sessions whenever we encounter challenges.

In our collaboration, I offer a flexible approach, allowing for either open-ended sessions or a set number of sessions, depending on your preferences and needs. Regularity of sessions is essential for your progress, and I am open to accommodating your work and other commitments when possible.

 

In the end, what truly matters is that you feel comfortable sharing your thoughts and feelings without fear of judgment.

I believe in your autonomy, so you are the navigator of your therapeutic journey, and I am here to support and empower you every step of the way. 

I work with adults over 18.

I often work with an open-ended contract, for as long as you need and feel you benefit from our relationship, but therapy can be arranged for a set number of sessions if you want to address a specific issue.
