and Counselling psychology
I follow an integrative approach, paying attention to the person as a whole, focusing on the present moment and encouraging a balance between body, feeling, intellect and imagination.
My holistic approach is focused on support, communication, relationship-building and self-awarenes, empowering and supporting people to achieve their goals.
I also integrate different therapeutic models to suit your needs, like gestalt therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy, mindfulness and systemic therapy.
I provide a safe, confidential, supportive and nurturing environment where we can explore your needs together and agree what will be most effective for you.
I offer short term and long term therapy and the interventions followed will vary depending on the modality of your choice. Short term therapy is more suited to treat more specific issues and long term therapy helps to explore deeper matters rooted in childhood experiences.
INDIVIDUALS – £50 FOR 50 MINUTES
COUPLES – £70 FOR 90 MINUTES
