My experience has taught me that each person’s therapeutic needs differ, because everybody lives are different and come to therapy for various reasons. This is why I work flexibly and creatively in a soulful and companionate way, emphasising a spirit of mutuality, offering a non-judgemental, secure and respectful environment, where the relationship between you as a client and myself as a therapist is at the heart of the work.
This model is called Relational Transactional Analysis and explores an individual’s personality and how this has been shaped by their experiences, particularly those in childhood. I deeply believe that the mind is so powerful it can keep us trapped in unhealthy patterns that affect our relationships and the way we view ourselves.
Therefore, by working together on increasing your awareness of your way of being in the world and in relationship to others, we get closer to recognise your self-worth and to achieve the goals by focusing on the commitment to change.
I also have a special interest in helping people who struggle with feelings of shame and guilt, emotions which often play a hidden but pervasive role in a wide range of psychological distress, especially depression and addictions.
My experience of growing up in a multicultural family does manifest in an interest in exploring transgenerational and cultural issues from a therapeutic perspective. I would be willing to help you understand your journey if this refers to you.
