Looking for a therapist takes courage. Why? Because it means you have taken that first brave step to open something up that could be potentially painful and difficult, but you feel it is essential for your well-being to work through in a safe and professional setting. You may be feeling vulnerable and scared, unsafe even. I will not judge you or tell you what to do. I will listen to you and I will hear you. From there, we will build a relationship and work together in a comfortable and safe place for you to find your own answers. I use a mix of modalities in my work to include Person Centred, Integrative, Jungian and Solution Focussed, tailored to meet individual need as one size does not fit all!
All therapists have their own flaws, vulnerabilities and insecurities. We have come to the profession through our own life experience and we have undergone our own therapy pre-qualification to enable us to resolve personal issues and to be effective in our work. We have all been clients too and may still be, so we know that apprehension, that initial fear of the first therapy session and what might be expected of us. There is nothing to fear and everything to gain.
What is important for therapy to work is a willingness to engage and work with the right therapist, someone you feel really “gets you” and with whom you feel safe. Therapy can bring you empowerment and life changing results. It is sometimes a difficult path to travel, but it's a journey you will never regret undertaking. I would love to meet you and see if we can work together.
