I do not believe that any of us are inherently broken, so my role is not to fix people or problems.
My role as a therapist and coach is to help individuals to fully explore, understand and reconfigure themselves wherever they feel it necessary – our thoughts and feelings about the world, and our place in it, can affect us in ways we sometimes cannot realise.
I offer both a counselling and coaching service, although personally feel that these roles can overlap. In a counselling approach, I will sit with you while we look at your current feelings and situation, identify any difficulties or areas in which you feel ‘stuck’, and find ways to explore, understand and ‘make peace’ with the past in order that your current self may heal.
Coaching takes a more ‘forward-facing’ approach – together we will explore and identify what you might wish for in your future, be it a new career, the ability to form and maintain more healthy relationships, or to introduce and maintain a healthier lifestyle in general.
My modality of working ensures that you, as my client, are kept central to the work at all times – I will not tell you what to do or how to be, as collaboration is key to my practice. Your choices, preferences and safety are of paramount importance.
