About my Practice

The psychotherapy I offer is psychodynamic and integrative. This means that the therapeutic relationship with my clients is at the heart of the work and from that central point a broad range of complementary approaches can be woven together to suit each person and situation. Often it is useful to have a core model of working which informs and gives structure to all the other ways we can understand ourselves and for me that is usually, but not always, transactional analysis (TA). There is a useful link at the bottom of this page which will give you the basics so you can see before you start what the foundation and starting point of our work together might be.

One of the foundations of TA is that we begin the work by making a contract together which defines what it is we are going to be working on and helps us set realistic goals for the therapy. This can be a very focused contract for a specific outcome, for example the impact of trauma, navigating grief or help with a current mental health issue. Alternatively the contract might be more exploratory, such as wanting to grow in your career, thrive more in relationships or to understand yourself better. The list of things that counselling can help with is as long as your imagination, however common things that often bring people to therapy are listed below
