There are many reasons why someone might seek the support of a psychotherapist: depression, anxiety, relationship problems, loneliness. Whether you need support with more acute feelings that are overwhelming, or simply need someone to talk to, psychotherapy could help. Sometimes we can feel very alone in the world; psychotherapy is an opportunity to engage in a relationship where you can be seen and heard, a safe space to explore what is troubling you. I offer an understanding and confidential space, where I place your needs centrally.
My training is integrative, meaning that I draw from a number of different theories. My practice is based upon humanistic principles, which emphasise each individual’s innate human potential and their capacity for self-determination. Though I am influenced by theory, I believe it is the unique quality of the relationship between therapist and client that is ultimately healing. Please feel free to contact me to discuss further any questions you may have regarding the different theories and my approach.
As a psychotherapy trainee, I offer weekly 60 minute sessions and my fee is currently £40 per session. I am based in Weymouth, south Dorset. Placing myself in a rural setting I specialise in reconnecting to nature, inviting the natural environment in to my work. I offer sessions outdoors; this could be walking or sitting by the sea or in woodland as well as the contained setting of my garden therapy space where I will invite us to meet initially. I believe there is deep value in our relationship to nature and through our encounters with it, an opportunity to heal.
You can contact me to arrange an initial session, where we can discuss how psychotherapy may help you.
I am a member of the Bath Centre for Psychotherapy and Counselling (BCPC), and I am registered with the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) as a psychotherapist in training. I work within BCPC and UKCP ethical guidelines.
