I have great respect for anyone who walks through my door. It takes courage to face the feelings we have avoided, to take a closer look at where we have been in denial, or to admit that we can’t do it alone any longer. We all need support. We are social creatures afterall. We need to feel accepted for who we are, and to know we’re not alone.
One to One
Going to speak with a therapist takes a lot of courage and can be an important first step towards exploring meaningful and complex issues in life. I am trained to sit with my clients, and whatever they bring to our sessions. As a Music Therapist Accredited and qualifying Registered Psychotherapist trained in the Gestalt approach, I use a combination of verbal and music psychotherapy to explore and work through feelings and concerns. I practice empathy, acceptance, and curiosity with my clients, working collaboratively to develop a trusting and safe therapeutic relationship.
As a therapist, I offer a kind, non-judgmental setting where clients can safely reveal their thoughts and feelings. For me, therapy has two basic objectives: Wisdom and Integrity. Wisdom is the combination of knowledge and experience, applied thoughtfully to life situations. With the help of an aware, accepting psychotherapist, self-reflection comes more easily, paving the way for positive change. Integrity is a state of wholeness. When we are overtaken by inner conflict, we easily succumb to anxiety, addictions, depression or despair. Psychotherapy is an integrative process that helps re-establish wholeness.
