I provide an integrative approach to counselling, using different elements of Psychodynamic and Humanistic Therapies. I combine a variety of therapeutic tools and theories to fit the needs of my individual clients.

Psychodynamic Approach

Provides focus on trying to help a person make sense of their relationship experiences and how they see the world. Psychodynamic Approaches focus on unconscious processes as they are manifested in a person’s present behaviour. The goals that can be achieved through this approach include client’s self-awareness and understanding of the past or present behaviour. This enables the client to examine unresolved conflicts and symptoms that arise from past dysfunctional relationships.

Humanistic Approach

Provides an opportunity to explore creativity, personal growth and self-development, as well as acknowledging a variety of choices. The foundations of the humanistic approach provide the client with a deeper understanding of who they are, what they feel and the opportunity to explore the possibility of creating personal choices. It encourages self-awareness and self-realisation.
