There are many ways to approach therapy. You may notice that some people use person-centred, Jungian, Freudian, Gestalt. The words alone can start to sound confusing. After all, you’re just looking for someone to help you fix what you feel is going wrong. For this reason, I have a number of pages dedicated to the different approaches I use. This will help you understand what works best for you. However, no matter what you choose, we can incorporate a bit of everything if need be.

No matter what approach we choose, I am ‘person-centred’.
All this means is that YOU, the client, the person looking for help, is who I tailor everything to.
If you walk in wanting to discuss a problem, I will help you. If you walk in, wanting to draw, paint or find a different way to express your feelings, I will help you. Essentially, my aim is to make sure that I am helping you understand yourself a little better. In turn, this will help you become more self-assured and able to deal with the difficulties you are facing.
This doesn’t mean I won’t challenge you sometimes. After all, it can be hard to face your fears, or let go of your struggle if you always avoid it. However, I will always ensure that we are working on the goals you have set. In doing so, I will use techniques that you are comfortable with. In this way, we may jump from one approach to another. After all, the approach is just a toolkit. If one doesn’t work we can pick another. The ultimate aim is to make sure that you are happy with everything and are getting the support you need.
For this reason, and the fact that I have numerous resources in my bag of tricks, I can work with people of all ages.
So if you feel you need a little help, get in touch and let’s see how I can help.
