Therapy can be conducted in many different ways. Mine is a holitsic Integrative approach. Being holistic is important - no point just fixing a foot if the leg is about to fall off. Each session is adapted to suit your needs - using several recognised approaches. You don't have to know them but if interested they include:

Have Helped With Many Issues
In alphabetical order: abuse (childhood, coercive, cultural, financial, physical, sexual), addictions (drink, drugs, gambling), anger, anxiety (financial, social, work-related), bereavement (human and pet), betrayal, career, co-dependency, confidence, depression, domestic abuse (child, coercive, cultural, financial, physical, sexual), loneliness, low self-esteem, people pleasing, procrastination, relationships (parental, marital, unmarried), self-harm, stress, trauma (including childhood) and unwanted pregnancies.

My Sessions
As mentioned, these are holistic. If someone breaks an arm we don't focus on the hand that can no longer pick things up, we deal with the break in the arm. In the same way I work to get to the root cause of your upset.

Root causes are often mired by the variety of coping mechanisms adopted but, using the broken-bone analogy: sessions are like modern X-ray machines, gently looking 'under the skin' to discover where things got broken. We then begin working through these, identifying their connections to present life and how to heal them - resolving present-day issues from the bottom up.
The result? A solid, positive foundation for you to stand on, for the rest of your life, empowering the positives and disempowering the upsets.

The content of the sessions themselves is continually adjusted, to best suit your needs in the light of what ever we discover. There can be tasks to do between bookings but this is not school - entirely your choice as to whether they do them or not. Progress is faster when you do.

Many therapists refuse to accept couples because this work can be so demanding. Personally, I enjoy the challenge, regardless of couple gender. By working positively and openly together we can achieve great results and move forward in the best way for you both. However, both must want to be there. Absolutely no point even attempting such therapy if only one partner does.

First Therapy?
If you have never been to therapy before, don't worry. Am one of those people nobody is scared of - as clients, students and even my children have told me. Am someone stranger's infants start smiling and waving at as I write in cafes - including today, while writing this.
From the very first session, you are feel free to relax, breathe and be yourself.

The door is never closed. You are always welcome to come back for a 'top up', if needed. One example is a client who got back in touch when expecting their first child. One session was all it took.
