The journey of my clients is the most important aspect of my work as a psychotherapist. Understanding people and helping them get comfortable in their own skin through authentic self reflection is the very heart of what I do. Typically my clients know themselves quite well and generally experiencing distress, uncertainty or are in life transition. They have a genuine desire to embark on their inner journey. A faith in the pursuit of truth is foundational to the therapeutic endeavour.
I work with those who want to explore their potential and to navigate their way through feelings, issues or inner conflicts that are troubling and for which meaning and understanding is sought. The exploration with me enhances the opportunity to stay with the issues and experiences such that some transformation can occur. Integrating conflicting aspects for clients provides the possibility for them to move forward with a greater confidence and a capacity to be more creative in their living.
Existential, Psychoanalytic, Psychodynamic
I think it is a basic human desire to find happiness and this pursuit for fulfilment is ongoing and ever present. The circumstances into which one is born or finds oneself can present challenges and difficulties to create a meaning in pain, distress and uncertainty. Developing a therapeutic relationship with a psychotherapist provides an opportunity and momentum for authentic self reflection and for the possibility for change in its manifestations to occur.
I undertake regular steps to critically review my practice and participate in ongoing professional development. The focus for this development is to better understand theories of mind, the processes which facilitate a creative enactment of human existence and a spirituality that provides the foundation for the ongoing process of becoming a human being and living meaningfully and creatively.
I have experience spanning hospital, community and private practice settings with training in Psychodynamic and Cognitive Behavioural Therapies. I feel comfortable working with clients across different stages in life and with varying issues, concerns and distress. My aim is to assist a client find meaning and understanding in personal distress and establish better ways to cope.
