Psychotherapy + Counselling
Some of the things I might support you with are:
Reducing anxiety and overwhelm
Moving through difficult life changes or challenges
Improving self esteem
Lifting low mood
Recovering from burn-out, feeling run down and wrung out
Addressing a difficult relationship with food and / or your body
Recovery from chronic fatigue / long covid /chronic pain
Finding it difficult to move on from a traumatic life event or experience
I have a tool kit of many different modalities that includes NLP, CBT, Schema Therapy, Compassion Focused Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, yoga philosophy and somatic psychotherapy. I draw on what best suits your way of communicating and your needs at the time. It's not your role to fit my tools, but rather it's for me to work creatively with them and in accordance with who you are and what you bring to the space.
I meet you where you are at, respect your individuality & aim to be a steady anchor for you throughout your time of therapy with me. We may meet some moments that are challenging to explore but we will only ever go at a pace or depth that you feel supported at. Critical to this is that you feel safe within the space of the therapy room and within our therapeutic relationship.
For this reason I ask that an initial commitment to 6 sessions (usually weekly) is made once we agree to work together. This allows us both to gain a fuller understanding of the issues that have brought you to counselling and helps us form our collaborative relationship to finding ways forward that really make a difference for you.
I offer you a warm welcoming non-judgemental space to talk though your thoughts, feelings and experiences in ways that make sense to you.
My role is not to just listen, but to truly hear you, and to facilitate new understanding and perspective of the challenges and issues that you experiencing.
From here we can together create new solutions or paths forward to you feeling more positive and resourced within yourself.
