How I Work
Each person is unique. As an Integrative Psychotherapist and Counsellor I offer a flexible and creative approach for everyone I work with. I draw upon various approaches such as psychodynamic, humanistic and body psychotherapy. The relationship between us will be a unique and important part of our work. I welcome feedback along the way, so together we can find out what is right for you. I work interactively, meaning that I engage with and respond to you and what you present, rather than taking the 'blank screen' approach.
Counselling is usually shorter term work, often focussing on a specific issue or agreed goal. Psychotherapy involves long-term or open-ended work, and may delve more deeply into your unconscious patterns and conflicts. Often goals can change over time and this is something we can discuss as we go along.
