Firstly, let's get this one out of the way: you don't have to be at rock bottom to come to therapy.
That's the old model.
I see people who are driven, and have achieved some of the things they want to in life, but who still feel that something is missing.
I'm guessing you feel uncertain and confused about what’s going on.
Therapy with me can help you figure out what is really going on, and when this happens I find there’s usually a feeling of relief for you.
Finding out why something is happening, is the first step towards really finding out how to do things differently.
Are you ambitious and want to keep being ambitious, but know that something inside doesn't feel right?
Are you finding it tricky to maintain romantic relationships and feel like you just don't 'get' men or women? Do you feel close to giving up on relationships altogether?
I'm really passionate and committed to these areas.
I’m warm, gutsy, straight talking and kind.
You can expect me to be 'real' with you.
I’ll take the risk of saying something I think you won’t like, if I think it will really help you.
I'll be direct, but gentle about it too.
I find this approach is good at getting people, who feel uncomfortable with their feelings, in touch and much more comfortable with their feelings. This usually leads to a sense of aliveness, and more connection with yourself.
You being lost, unsure or scared doesn’t freak me out.
I’m not a blank screen. I’m keen to engage with you, and for you to feel both challenged and cared for.
I'll always be on your side; not always in the way you want me to be, but often in the way you need me to be.
I find this approach is useful at helping people feel supported in such a way that they are ready to do things differently in their lives.
Other areas I deal with:
Are you a stepparent feeling confused by your role, and feel like all your buttons are being pushed? I know this can be a really challenging role.
Are you a millennial or generation Z (also known as Post-Millennials or The Founders) launching into adult life and something feels a bit off? Are you moving out of home, about to go to uni, or start your career or business?
