Anna HairIntegrative psychotherapist
I am a UKCP registered integrative psychotherapist offering individual therapy to adults for a range of issues. In addition I am a trained bereavement counsellor with over 10 years' experience in this field.
I really appreciate that reaching out to work with a therapist is a big step. We all experience periods in our lives where perhaps we are overwhelmed by difficult feelings or stuck in repetitive ways of behaving that leave us feeling unfulfilled. For some of us there are life changing decisions to be made or periods of readjustment following big changes in our lives. Therapy can provide a safe space for you to explore your feelings and experiences and this can help you to develop a better understanding of yourself allowing you to make your own choices for a more fulfilling life.
Depending on your reasons for coming to therapy we may work together for a short period or over a longer term and this is something we can negotiate.
We are all different and as an integrative psychotherapist I draw on a range of approaches which I adjust depending on your needs. My model uses ideas from humanistic, psychodynamic and relational theory. I believe that the development of a trusting relationship between the client and therapist is central to therapeutic work and I offer a safe, non judgemental space for you to work with me.
I will work collaboratively with you which means we will often use what happens in the therapy room to explore the issues you are struggling with in your own life. I may challenge you compassionately at times but will work at a pace you can manage. Together we can tease out problematic ways of thinking about yourself and others which may have contributed to your difficulties. While therapy cannot change the past, the process of sharing your thoughts can enable you to take on different perspectives, helping you to explore a greater range of possibilities with which to move forward
