My Philosophical Approach  

I take into consideration and incorporate various techniques and approaches to suit the individual and their therapeutic needs. This means that I do not believe in a “one size fits all” approach to therapy, as it would seem limiting to not consider various ways to support a client. I place great emphasis on understanding the individual, through the exploration of their thoughts, feelings and personal experiences. As an Integrative Psychotherapist, I integrate interventions from the Psychodynamic, Humanistic and Cognitive Behavioural approach.

In addition, I aim to bring to awareness the mind/body states of the client during therapy, through Mindfulness. I seek to clarify meaning by working with the client to bring to awareness any experiences which may have an impact on their self-development. I can acknowledge that it may be challenging to share so openly with a therapist, but it is my therapeutic commitment to ensure that my clients have a safe space to be heard and supported.

Everything discussed in our sessions will be confidential. My therapeutic work is supervised by a UKCP registered supervisor; this is to ensure that I am working in a manner which is professional and safe. No client identifying information will be shared during these supervision sessions.

I am a registered member of BACP and a student member of UPCA. I comply with the professional standards and ethics set out in the BACP Ethical Framework.
