Counselling and Psychotherapy for Adults
Counselling and Psychotherapy are sometimes referred to as talking therapies, or even as "the talking cure". You may already know that speaking to someone about your thoughts, emotions and experiences can feel helpful.
As an Integrative therapist, I use a number of theories to inform my work, dependant on what each client needs. I take a holistic approach therapy: our sessions are likely to focus on a combination of thoughts, feelings and physical experience. I also practise in a trauma-sensitive way.
