The Space

I provide a space that is built on trust, respect and equality and these are the foundations of exploration. It is a confidential place free from judgment, welcoming you to come as you are, with all parts of yourself. Our therapy relationship can be a ‘facilitative’ space for us to work together, it has the potential to cultivate a life that no longer feels a solitary survival, and may begin a return to yourself. With the right conditions, I believe we all have the potential to thrive and grow, becoming our chosen authentic self.

The Experience of Therapy

Therapy and counselling can be an experience where you:

  • feel supported and build resilience
  • learn about yourself and your relationships
  • validate your past and present
  • experience emotional regulation and attunement

It can also be a place where you work through the difficulties and resistance that may have held you back to date, it can feel uncomfortable at times as you work towards letting go of coping mechanisms and strategies that no longer serve you. Through the process you may find the understanding, skills and compassion that supports your true authentic self.

Coming to Therapy

There may be a number of reasons you come to therapy, they may include distress, fear, vulnerability, depression, confusion and loneliness. You may also choose to come to therapy to explore your sense of self, who you are and where you want to be. It is important that you choose and feel the right therapist for you, I would suggest an initial conversation for you to explore this and offer 30 mins to do so.

“A person is a fluid process, not a fixed and static entity; a flowing river of change, not a block of solid material; a continually changing constellation of potentialities, not a fixed quantity of traits.”
Carl Rogers
