HOW I WORK

Help for Your Life

 

My Approach

Psychotherapy is at its roots, a conversation about living, about what it is like for you to be human and why it often feels so hard. I will work with you to help you understand yourself better and develop more helpful ways of dealing with your difficulties. I will provide a space based on support, confidentiality, trust, and empathy. Together, we will explore those issues which challenge and limit you and the changes that will benefit you. This approach is based on shared dialogue and participation. I will offer support and encouragement to help you achieve your goals. People describe me as warm and easy to talk to.
