I have worked in both the IT sector and, more recently, teaching in a school. This has given me increased insight into the pressures and stress that supporting children can bring and the strains this can put on relationships.
I work with Individuals (over 18) and Couples on whatever is troubling you. It may well be that your past is affecting how you think and feel now and so we would look at what has happened in your past.
The ultimate aim is for you to understand yourself, be kinder to yourself and allow you the space to change your self-perception so that the choices you make in life are the ones that are truly the best for you.
The pace and the depth of the work is determined by you and we may use creative media if it helps you to more easily express yourself.
It is my belief that everyone has within them the answers and guidance for their situation and my role is to work alongside you to find that inner wisdom.
For Couples, the emphasis is on your relationship although by looking at how your relationship is with your partner, you will begin to understand how your relationship is affected by both your pasts. By its very nature, couples work is more directive than individual work and tends to be shorter term.
