Certified Imago Therapist
Areas of interest
I have a passionate interest in people and relationships and believe that counselling/psychotherapy offers a chance to reach your own understandings, discover your own identity, and generate your own solutions and healing from within yourself. You will not be offered advice or told what to do with your life, but instead be offered skilled help to address your own personal difficulties. I seek to create a warm, supportive, non-judgemental and respectful relationship but will also try to offer some appropriate challenge to help you grow through the counselling process. The aim is to provide an opportunity for you to work towards living in a more satisfying and resourceful way and perhaps to look at life from fresh perspectives. I seek to discover and nourish your strengths and thus help you to develop more confidence to find solutions to your problems.
I offer both short-term and open ended counselling/psychotherapy and work with individuals and couples.
Imago Relationship Therapy for couples:
You will be coached in practical and effective relationship skills that help resolve conflict and frustration and will have the opportunity to learn how to communicate more effectively and powerfully as well as listen to, respect and appreciate each other. I work with couples to create emotional safely and intimacy and to help rekindle romance passion and love.
