My approach to counselling
I use a Psychodynamic approach within my practice, which helps us look at how early experiences impact on the here and now in your life. It can be especially helpful for untangling ‘baggage’ which may be holding you back in your current relationships and attitudes to others. Understanding how these patterns are caught up in old hurts, can free you to choose healthier relationships.
My work with adolescents, both in a secondary school setting and privately has allowed me to use a wide range of skills, including Creative Therapy Techniques. Sometimes people find it difficult to express themselves in words or get stuck, so using other mediums can really help to move people forward.
