How I work
  • I see our work as a collaboration between us both; with you drawing on the skills, qualities and experience I offer.

  • Part of the work in the early sessions is to establish a good working relationship where you can feel safe, supported and "met".  A key to success is working at a pace that feels comfortable for you.
  • We can also consider any goals you have for yourself.  We may review these goals periodically.

 My way of working is respectful and client centered  

  • Couples Counselling tends to be more goal-orientated and educative, whereas one-to-one counselling & psychotherapy can be less about 'doing' and more about 'being'; more about your present experience than reaching the goal.
  • Sometimes you might need only to be listened to, and to be supported and affirmed in your experience. Other times you might want suggestions for exploration, together with feedback.  I might also offer a personal response that recognises our common humanity and possibility for connection with the world..  You are not in this aloney You
  • I don't have a set recipe to follow, but endeavour to follow your energy and the natural unfolding of your growth towards wholeness.
