4 Years Experience

How do we accept the past and remain open to the future?

As we are thrown into the thick of life, it is our response to these circumstances revealing who we are and where we may want to go. As life is anything but a linear process - we may often stumble or get stuck along the way. We may even describe the stumbling blocks as anxiety, depression, numbness or even shame.

Some of our work could involve examining those stumbling blocks and challenge your ideas, choices and reasoning processes. I encourage you to remain open to all aspects and stimulate you to consider ones often overlooked. I work with all types of people, many of whom are dissatisfied with where they are and are looking to develop a better life project.

Common questions could be: What sort of life do I want to lead? What type of person do I strive to be? Why does it make sense that I sometimes self-sabotage? Regardless of the presenting issues, it is a journey we embark on together.

My initial training was in Occupational Therapy, where I worked within NHS, social care and third sector settings. Eventually, it was my work with older adults that drew me to psychotherapy. The Existential approach resonated with me because it resists doctrinal formalisation, indicating that there are no standardised ways of approaching life and the issues that may come with it.
