I am a fully qualified Integrative counsellor and psychosexual therapist working online. Integrative counselling essentially means that I do not believe that one way of working helps all people. I believe that the relationship we will create together is the most important factor in predicting the outcome of therapy.
I focus on the repetitive patterns that may be operating on an unconscious level. Patterns that we recreate from the past, but that perhaps are no longer helpful now. It can take time and patience not only to notice these patterns, but to change them. Through our relationship I hope to bring these patterns into awareness, which I believe can be healing and promote change.
Studying existential counselling as part of my training means that I also think about how we make meaning of our lives. How we think about the 'givens' in life - Death, Freedom, Meaninglessness and Isolation. The facets of existence that affect us all.
A common thread in my work is helping others to realise their innate potential. I believe we already have many answers within us, we just have to find a way of accessing this wisdom.
