I love to help people in my life to feel good and confident about themselves and voice themselves. In the same way, I am driven to help my clients find their lost passion and motivation by supporting them in exploring themselves.
Integrative therapy is one of the most effective forms of therapy. It integrates different approaches and gives more tools to the therapist to use and tailor around their unique clients. I also have to say that I believe that the relationship with the therapist is generally more important than the approach they may use.
The integrative approach (a combination of Person Centred and Psychodynamic theories) I employ puts the client at the centre of the therapy. The client is encouraged and gently guided to express their experiences in their own time and in their own way, leading to inner discovery. Emphasis is placed on giving time to reflect upon different aspects of the issues raised and identified, through the exploration of the past and importantly the connection between the past and the present.
I love my job, and I don't see it in terms of achievements. I am happy to have contributed to an article on Women's Health magazine last year and to work with ALRA (Academy of Live & Recorded Arts) and staff since June 2020. I would say that the great daily achievement for me is seeing clients build their confidence and find their own voice.
