With the pressures of this modern world relationships offers us the most challenges in our living, whether that be a relationship with another person, in relation to objects, a situation, a desire, a wish or within the relationship we have with our Self. The paradox is it is also relationship which offers healing from life's complex conundrums IF the right conditions are present and within relationship where there is positive attunment between people.
I understand 'one size doesn't fit all'; my work is informed from a number of psychological schools of thought. I work from a compassionate Person-centred foundation merging several theories, as an experienced practitioner I offer an integrative style of therapy; which means I will combine and utilise principles, skills and knowledge from several specific therapies tailored to support each individual person's needs. Exploring ways with clients to empower, create connections, peace of mind and inner buoyancy! Aiding living more resourcefully, maintain, enhance and/or regain sovereignty of their life.
The first step to solving any problem is recognising and acknowledging there is one! I offer a confidential supportive service where clients may be facilitated to become aware of, acknowledge and work through or towards acceptance of any concerns which may affect and/or interfere with satisfying living. I respect people have many concerns which bring them into seeking counselling support and indeed it takes courage to acknowledge and strength to seek support from another.
We cannot unknown what we know, once we've seen, heard experienced something negative or positive, the negative has a lasting uncomfortable if not painful impact upon us and some research has suggested it is imprinted so ingrained especially if in childhood trauma (Walker, 2013) can and does affect us for the rest of our life. Exploring, gaining new awareness and insight compels us to do something different supports healing and growth. Contact me today if you would like someone to walk with you for a while.
