People come to therapy for a great many reasons – to talk about personal experiences, to work through concerns and events that are impacting and affecting life negatively, or maybe to explore personal life goals and find ways to support their journey towards achieving them.
As an integrative counsellor and psychotherapist, I put the emphasis on our working together, collaboratively exploring what you want from your therapy time.
The advantage of working this way is that therapy is flexible and tailored specifically to you and your needs. This allows us to use tools from different therapeutic approaches, finding the best fit for you by using your feedback to inform these choices.
My experience includes working under two specialist bereavement organisations in Sheffield and I can offer a therapeutic space for you to explore your personal experiences of bereavement and loss. These may be current, or may have happened some time ago. I will listen to your story with compassion and empathy, striving to assist you to find ways that feel most comfortable to mourn your loss, your way, whilst you are grieving.
I am also currently working at a Sheffield charity providing integrative trauma-focused therapy to women who are survivors of trauma through past experiences of neglect, sexual and domestic abuse in childhood, and also as teens and adults.
Further experience includes working for over twenty years with adults who identify with different ways of experiencing the world and neuro-divergent thinking styles tutoring and mentoring people with specific learning differences – dyslexia, dyspraxia, ADHD, and autism
