CREATIVE RELATIONAL THERAPY
I'm an integrative psychotherapist drawing on different strands of therapeutic theory and practice. There isn't one approach which suits all. I aim to find the best way to work with you and issues you bring to the therapy. I offer a creative approach to the work with difficulties such as anxiety, depression, problems in relationships or a search for new identity and authenticity in life.
Creativity and the arts can access places within ourselves beyond words, beyond the unhelpful patterns and familiar narratives. They open access to all parts of ourselves - the forgotten, the disowned or the vulnerable. In the context of a safe and confidential therapeutic relationship we can work towards the positive changes you wish to see.

If you are interested in having therapy with me write me an email (you can use the contact form at the bottom of this page) or leave me a voicemail message. I will get back to you and we will arrange a brief telephone conversation. This is an opportunity for us to discuss your initial needs, you can ask any questions you may have without any obligations. We would agree a time and date for your initial appointment.
When seeking therapy or counselling, you may want to meet with a few therapists before you settle on the right one for you.
What happens in your first session?
The first session is an opportunity for you to find out whether therapy and the therapist are right for you. It is a chance for you and me to get to know each other and find out whether we can work together effectively. You should feel comfortable, confident and motivated working with your therapist. You can ask any questions about the therapeutic process or discuss any concerns.
There is no obligation to commit to therapy in the first session.
I will ask you what brings you to therapy at this time of your life and what you would like to achieve. I may want to find out about your background, things that are going well in your life and what you struggle with. I will ask you to consider how the regular appointments would fit with your life. The first session is also the time for the therapist to decide whether they are a good match for you.
What happens next?
Should you feel the first session went well and you would like to continue your therapy, a second session will be agreed on. You will choose a day and a time which will become your regular appointment. In the second session, we will sign the therapeutic agreement with confidentiality, payment, cancellation policies detailed. Our work together will commence.
