I aim to assist you in exploring your past experiences and relationships, and allow you to gain more clarity and insight into any difficulties you may be facing. I use an integrative model that draws influence and elements from two different models of psychotherapy – Psychodynamic and Humanistic. This integration enables me to tailor psychotherapy to your needs.
Psychodynamic psychotherapy aims to assist you in resolving your existing or historic difficulties through working with you to bring your unconscious mind and thoughts into conscious awareness. Psychodynamic theory holds the view that the mind conceals or retains feelings or memories which may be too painful or difficult for the conscious mind to process.
Humanistic psychotherapy aims to focus on your self-development and growth, and recognise your strengths, resourcefulness and creativity. Humanistic theory places emphasis on your self-worth and holds the view that being valued as a person, without being judged, can assist you in making changes in your life.
