Entering therapy for the first time can be very nerve wracking and knowing a little bit about how your therapist works and what might happen during therapy might put your mind at rest. You can expect absolute respect and sensitivity towards whatever you want to talk about, in complete confidence.
I am an Integrative Psychotherapist, this means that I make my way of working sensitive to the needs of all my clients and I am not fixed by any one theory or method, I will use whatever works best for you. Our work together will be a gentle journey of discovery and revelation, completely unique to you.
I am trained to use many forms of therapy including practical mindfulness techniques and visualisations. I always work through these in session to make sure you are comfortable using them at home as well.
I specialise in using Eco-therapy through ‘Walk and Talk’ therapy and nature exploration. The outdoor therapy is a great way to help you relax and open up, whilst enjoying your surroundings. The movement of the body can help to process emotions and the side by side position can take the pressure off face to face talking. great if you are an outdoors eprson and hate sitting still!
We would meet on-line or by phone for an initial assessment first, so we can see whether we want to work together. We would then decide together your goals for therapy and what issues you want to deal with.
Once we decide to work together we would meet weekly for 50 minutes in Haxby or York for ‘Walk and Talk’, online using Skype or a mixture of both.
I am experienced in working with many issues, but I specialise in working with:
- Generalised anxiety & panic attacks
- Loss or change of a job, relationship or loved one
- Depression, loss of meaning or purpose in life
- Discovering or going deeper into your spiritual path
- Mentoring and support for younger people with mental health challenges
- Wanting to make a change in your life and needing support to do so
- Life with long term illnesses such as cancer
If you wanted to explore if I could be of help, then I would be pleased to hear from you. You can contact me on 07709710387 at firstname.lastname@example.org
