'Words are events.
They do things. Change things.
They transform both speaker and hearer.'
A relational, humanistic approach
I use a relational, Humanistic approach. This means that I believe in everyone's capacity for self-fulfilment and growth, under the right conditions and with the help of a supportive relationship in which we feel seen and safe to be who we are. I practice with empathy and unconditional positive regard, respecting everyone's need to be heard confidentially, without judgment.
I work with people from diverse cultural and professional backgrounds, gender and age groups. I value each person’s uniqueness and tailor my approach through a process of continuous conversation with you.
I have a policy of strict confidentiality and follow professional standards defined by the ethical codes of BACP, UKCP & EATA
Empathy & Respect
I listen without judgment. I value and respect the courage it takes to share with a therapist
Continuous professional development
I am committed to ongoing professional development, through training and supervision.
I work with attention to cultural and identity difference. I'm interested in how difference is experienced both in day-to-day life and your relationship with me.
