Mental and emotional health has been a huge part of my life for many years. Having been on the client-side of various therapy models myself in times gone by, I know just how important it is to find a therapist and way of working that truly suits you. At Solutions, I aim to promote wellbeing by facilitating change - according to your specific needs, by integrating two core types of therapy into our work.
I work integratively with CBT (Cognitive Behaviour Therapy) skills and Client-centred Therapy. I find that by utilising both modalities, we can work together to provide you with practical coping strategies to help achieve and maintain a standard of wellness in the here-and-now, but we can also, if you wish, go beyond that to dig a little deeper, and perhaps find some answers to the ‘why?’ questions we so often have.
The relationship between client and therapist is an important one, and I believe in working collaboratively with all of my clients to ensure you can make the most out of every session. Together we will look at therapeutic goals and set flexible agendas for our time spent - but the most important factor of all is to work at your pace. You are the expert on you, I am simply here to guide and walk with you on this journey.
"We think we listen, but very rarely do we listen with real understanding, true empathy. Yet listening, of this very special kind, is one of the most potent forces for change that I know." - Carl Rogers
