Approach to Therapy & How I Work

I have many years experience and believe that a good counselling relationship, that is built on trust is pivotal for providing your safe space to talk freely, learn and have an understanding of your emotions and certain behaviours, find self-acceptance and heal.

As every person is unique, every way of working is too, so I tailor therapy to the needs of the individual using the skills and techniques from Relational, Humanistic, Transactional Analysis, CBT and Psychodynamic modalities.
