Type of Therapy
Transactional Analysis and Integrative
About Me & How I Work
I value personal growth and development – yours and mine. I am a qualified Psychotherapeutic Counsellor in advanced ongoing clinical training. Using Relational Transactional Analysis, my approach is integrative, drawing on both Psychoanalytic and Humanistic principals. My belief is that therapy offers a dedicated space to talk, to be heard, to relate, and to make sense of the past and the present. People come to counselling for many different reasons, and with a wide variety of aims. Some people want support through a difficult time in their life, though bereavement, or with trauma, depression or anxiety. Some people want to change a particular behavioural or relational pattern, or to develop a greater understanding of themselves. Working with relational difficulties, trauma and loss I have a particular interest in working with minority groups who have experienced being marginalised by society. My practice is non-discriminatory, race and LGBT+ affirmative, with respect for the individuality, experience and value of each client. Providing a safe, confidential and empathic space, I work to support you in exploring whatever it is that has brought you into therapy. If you feel you would benefit from talking confidentially about any challenges you might be experiencing, whatever they might be, please get in touch with me for more information, or to book in an initial consultation.
