“Life begins on the other side of despair” Jean-Paul Sartre.
I believe each of us is unique with the potential for growth and development and can move forward in our own way. Your motivation to change and our client-therapist relationship is the key to healing.
My practice is all about fitting you to the therapy, not the other way round. Life experience has provided a deep understanding of how individual we are with our own unique story to tell. Our reasons for seeking therapy and desire to move away from stuck patterns are all different. However, our requirements are all the same. That we feel listened to and properly heard, understood and guided through emotional turmoil. There are no essentials or absolutes so why can any of us be expected to be understood by a single theory, style of therapy or helped by one specific therapeutic approach?
