Counselling & Psychotherapy

In my counselling practice I aim to create a safe place for people to talk about whatever problems they are struglling with. I completely appreciate that seeking psychological assistance can be a difficult step for many people, and therefore my priority is your comfort and that our conversations are useful to you. My work is guided by the following principles:

 

  1. You are the expert in your life, 

  2. I am an expert in listening to people and helping people solve problems.

  3. I am guided by you and what you would find most helpful, and together

  4. We collaboratively solve problems. 

 

 Below is a list of the areas of practice I am most skilled in.

"Create a new therapy for each patient... Above all, the therapist must be prepared to go wherever the patient goes, do all that is necessary to continue building trust and  safety in the relationship. I try to tailor the therapy for each patient, to find the best way to work, and I consider the process of shaping the therapy not the groundwork or prelude but the essence of the work."

 

- Irvin Yalom, The Gift of Therapy, pp32-33.
