Transactional Analysis and Integrative
About Me & How I Work
People seek Counselling and Psychotherapy for all sorts of reasons and talking to an objective person can be the first step in making sense of some of your behaviour and thought processes. I trained in Transactional Analysis which explores an individuals personality and how it has been shaped by their experiences, particularly those in childhood. This type of therapy aims to be non judgemental and secure; where the relationship between the therapist and client is at the heart of the work. Part of the appeal of TA therapy is that it promotes an equal relationship between client and therapist, in which the client is focused on their commitment to change. As a relational therapist, I will try to understand your unique self experience. Together we will work on creating a new in-depth relationship, which aims to be supportive, strengthening and enlivening. I believe that therapy can help people recognise their self worth in order to achieve their full potential. I have always believed that mental health is as important as physical health and needs to be nurtured. I have previously worked at a counselling centre in Feltham and at the Terrence Higgins Trust, a specialist organisation offering support for people living or affected by HIV, as well as those struggling with issues related to anxiety, sexuality and depression.
