What does Therapy Involve?
Therapy works best when tailored to the needs of the individual, and at the time when the individual feels they are ready to embark on the journey of reflection. For this reason, I class myself as an integrative therapist, meaning that I draw on the therapeutic theory and approaches that I feel will be most beneficial for my client’s needs. This may include a combination of approaches, such as: Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Person-centred/humanistic approaches, Creative & Play therapies or Systemic Family therapy.
I view my position in the delivery of therapy as a facilitator who can offer a safe, trusting, non-judgemental space where you can learn and reflect on your own thoughts, feelings, relationships and experiences. I will encourage self-reflection to help you achieve a greater understanding of these, in order to reframe the damaging narratives.
I am also skilled in the use of creative and/or play methods which enable emotional expression. Additional benefits to these forms of therapy include: relationship building and empathy development, particularly for children and young people.
