Over 3 Years Post-Registration Experience

What to Expect

A preliminary assessment session allows you to see if you are comfortable with me, discuss what worries you, ask questions, clarify confidentiality, and determine if therapy could assist you.

Counselling

Counselling centres on listening to you, and assisting you. You determine what issue concerning your early years or adulthood you discuss. The objective of counselling is to help you to speak about a problem and find a solution that is right for you.

Humanistic Therapy

Humanistic therapy centres on valuing you. It sees you as a whole human being and prioritises your personal growth. Humanistic therapy aims to help you realise your autonomy.

Integrative Therapy

Integrative therapy combines therapies to fit your needs and the problems you experience. It explores your subjective experiences and choices. The aim of integrative therapy is to help you advance your self-understanding.

Psychotherapy

Psychotherapy focuses on you, and you obtaining insight into the difficulties you face. It considers your thoughts, feelings and relevant moments in your life. Psychotherapy intends to help you develop or find suitable ways of managing.

Thoughts on Mental Health

The relationship with a pet can be very different to any other relationship. It may be the only truly unconditional relationship you experience. If you have difficulty trusting another human because of life experience, you may find a special connection with a pet that you may have never felt before. Therefore, the loss of a pet can be felt so deeply, and sometimes more so than previous losses of family members, where the relationships may have been more complicated. People often feel they are not justified in grieving as much for a lost pet and may feel pressure to cover up their grief as others may not understand.

Money can cause problems in relationships in various ways. You and your partner may have different ideas about how money issues should be managed and your own individual attitudes towards money. This may result in breakdown in communication and a feeling that you are growing apart, and can lead to a breakdown in other areas of your relationship. Getting into debt may also lead to feelings of failure, which may result in you withdrawing from your partner and leave you with a sense of isolation.

In my experience, people often put off coming to therapy if they feel they haven't experienced a serious enough event to make them justified in seeking help. You may feel unhappy and have low self-esteem, however you feel that you have everything you thought you needed and then feel bad about being dissatisfied with your life. Therapy can give you the time and space to explore honestly how and why you may be feeling as you are, and may enable you to connect with what you really want out of life.
