I have always had an interest in psychology and behavioural psychology. Through all my studies I found that people their behaviours, motivators, influences, experiences etc just fascinate me. It is incredible the power our emotions and thoughts have over our choices, lives and outcomes. I wanted to become a therapist so I could support people. Whether through their difficult experiences, vulnerabilities, fears, doubts, blocks, insecurities, I wanted to create that safe space, with no judgement, that they could explore themselves, challenge themselves , forgive themselves, accept themselves. Difficult journeys are easier to make when you aren't alone, when you have the right support.
There are so many theories and approaches, to help explore and explain ourselves. What resonates with one person may not with another. We are all individual and therefore being able to use a blend of therapies to suit the client, the situation I believe is the most effective way to help them reach their goals.
My sessions are relaxed and mostly client led. I like adapt my style and the way the session is run based on the clients needs and aims. I really rate psycho-education and sharing theories / methods with my clients. There is often laughter in my sessions. It's really important to me that the client feels safe and comfortable in the space we share to explore their situation. When the situation suits, I also enjoy empowering my clients to achieve their goals / dreams and the sessions can be more 'life coach' in style.
