How can Psychotherapy be beneficial to me?
There are many issues which can cause immense pain and distress for us. Confusing and difficult emotions, relationship difficulties, work concerns, identity crisis , pain and long term illness, difficult upbringing and life experiences (past and recent)are just some of the things that people come to see me about .
My role, whatever the issues might be, is to help facilitate long term change and growth through understanding,questioning and encouragement in a empathetic,safe, private and non-judgemental space.
I practice using the Integrative Humanistic Psychotherapy which means that approach is taken from several models to suit each client's need as we are all different. I mainly use the humanistic approach, with psychodynamic and cognitive models to inform my work. An Integrative approach creates flexibility in what you would like to focus on. The humanistic approach focuses on you as a person and what you want to talk about in your session.
